The following limitations apply to schools and colleges in Jammu & Kashmir: For in-person/on-campus instruction, all schools, colleges, universities, technical education/skill development institutes, and coaching centres will stay closed. Teachers will also be forced to offer online lessons solely from their homes. Here is what an official statement read:

Universities and colleges may be authorised to summon in-person attendance of minimum personnel for research or laboratory work under the terms of a new government directive. It was also said that the teaching personnel will be obliged to conduct online classes only from their residences. However, the government stated that educational institution personnel who are required for official responsibilities by the respective District Disaster Management Authorities would not be excused from their responsibilities as a result of this Order. After a number of kids and instructors tested positive for COVID-19, all government and private schools and institutions were shuttered in April as a preventative measure.
