Districts not included in the list "will follow prior COVID-19 schedule," the minister had written on Twitter.

The notification read that the districts having a higher COVID-19 cases and have reported more than 20 cases in the last 24 hours will be subject to abide the rules.

The districts that were included in the list are Lahore, Gujrat, Multan, Rahim Yar Khan, Sialkot, Rawalpindi and Faisalabad.

According to the existing decision "Students of all the educational institutions shall attend classes on alternate days with 50% ratio on any single working day as detailed in earlier letter [...] dated 12th September, 2020."

The above was amended to state: "Students of all the educational institutions are allowed to attend classes 5/6 days a week (as the case may be) w.e.f. 01-03-2021 except in the districts mentioned above."

The notification stated that the amendment will be reviewed on March 31.
