All medical, dental, ayurveda and nursing college students will have to undergo Covid-19 test as the educational institutions are set to reopen from November 16.

In a letter to principals, Director, Medical Education Department, issued guidelines for the reopening of these institutions.

Before getting entry into hostels and institutes, over 13,000 students will have to get tested. "Covid test is a must to prevent further infection," wrote the Director.

The department has asked the institutes to ensure that every student is provided with single accommodation. All members in the hostel kitchen should also be tested for Covid-19.

There should be proper distancing in the kitchen and students be allowed to take food to their rooms. No outsider will be allowed in the hostel or kitchen.

In classrooms too, social distancing is a must. Wearing masks is compulsory for the students and practical classes will be held in small groups.

The students have to submit their Covid-19 test report to the hostel warden on arrival and will sign an undertaking before occupying the hostel room. As per this undertaking, the students have to report to the hostel authorities on getting any Covid-19-related symptoms.

During their stay on the campus, if a student contracts the infection, the college authorities and administration will not be held responsible. The students will not use four-wheelers in the college or hostel campus and pillion riding won't be allowed either. They can't get food from outside.
