Sri Lanka's Education Ministry has declared to re-open all schools in the country's Western Province including capital Colombo on March 29 after it was shut since last October due to the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, a minister said here Wednesday.

Education Minister G.L. Peiris told a weekly media briefing here that following recommendations from the Health Ministry, schools for all grades would re-open on March 29.

The country's Western Province was the worst affected by the COVID-19 pandemic with schools across the province remaining shut due to a rise in infections since October last year.

The Minister said schools would now re-open and all health protocols would be strictly followed.

"Now we believe that a conducive environment has been created to re-open all schools and all grades in the Western Province. The health recommendations in this regard were conveyed by the Health Services Director General," the Minister said.

Accordingly, all pre-schools in the Western Province have also been permitted to commence from March 29.
