There is, however, no spike in the number of cases at schools.

Single classes were split into two sections and other precautions are being taken. However, the decisions will be taken at talk levels to run the schools based on the ground situation, the Minister explained.

A decision would be taken after the recommendations of the technical committee in this regard, he stated. Though the cases are rising in Bengaluru, the students of class 10, 11 and 12 have not caught infection, he added.
