    And why do parents need to sign consent forms and take full responsibility of their children incase any unfortunate event occurs. reopening of schools is a decision taken by the government and schools. shouldnt they also be reponsible for making a haste?? Yes, cases are less now in numbers. but not fully eradicated.

    Senless decision senseless timings. Forcing little children to wear mask whole day. This looks like a major experiment on little children by the government starting school without vaccination. Nobody should be forced to attend against their wishes. There are lot of children with underlying medical conditions.

    Cases are very low these days, malls temples churches everything are open. Even madrasas have begun offline classes in mangalore for kids why can't school open then? Yes online protects these kids from covid but have a look at the recent increase in eye problems and health issues in kids it's at a all time high

    @Daniel, eye problems are a minor issue. Covid 3rd wave is on the horizon...China and Russia are seeing a spike in new cases of Corona infections, as of yesterdays news, even from those who have taken the vaccines...and only a question of time before India sees its cases rising again..people in India are already thinking just because they have taken 2 doses of vaccine, they will be immune....many are roaming without mask even...cops and enforcers are least bit bothered...worst are the politicians whom you don't at all see wearing a mask.
