Tue, Apr 6, 2021, 09:53 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Apr 06, Colombo: Sri Lanka’s Universities that have been temporarily closed due to the spread of the Covid-19 epidemic are scheduled to reopen after the Sinhala and Tamil New Year, Chairman of the University Grant Commission (UGC) Prof. Sampath Amaratunga said.

Dr. Asela Gunawardena, Director General of Health Services, is preparing a special circular on how to reopen universities after the Covid epidemic, what are the special procedures to be followed and how to conduct lectures, Prof. Amaratunga said.

Academic activities were scheduled to begin after the Covid vaccine was given to the university system. However, due to the delay in getting the COVID-19 vaccine and the fact that students can no longer delay attending the universities, it has been decided to start the academic activities after receiving the health instructions from the Ministry of Health, the UGC Chairman explained.
