Govt extends educational institutions shutdown


Dhaka, Nov 12: The government has extended the closure of educational institutions to December 19 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Ministry of Education on Thursday issued a notice in this regard.

The government ordered all educational institutions to close on March 17 following an outbreak of the novel coronavirus in the country.

Since then, the shutdown has been extended on several occasions, and most recently it has been extened until November 14.
