The Deputy Commissioner has also appealed to all Principals and educators of institutions within the District to lend their support in educating the children on following health related protocols as prevention and the vaccination for eligible age groups.

It may mentioned awareness can be covered by having a specific Lesson Plan, Parent-Student Joint Assignment on Covid Family Preparedness Plan and Covid Vaccination Oriented On-line Question and Answer session with the students.

Appeals to all teachers to assist the Headman in the preparation of the Community Covid Elimination Plan and to gear up with innovative strategies on COVID-19 and its important preventive measures.
