According to the guidelines prescribed by the University Grants Commission, the physical presence of students in classes should in no way be made compulsory and if at all students do attend offline classes they should mandatorily carry with themselves the results of the RT-PCR test taken at least three days in advance and also produce negative results for the same.

Urging the principals of colleges to get in touch with medical officers of nearby health centres, District Health Officer Dr Ramachandra Bairy, spoke of how out of a total of 19,402 individuals who have been tested (college lecturers, non-teaching staff and students) 45 have tested positive. Additional Deputy Commissioner M J Roopa, Sub-divisional Officer Madan Mohan and more also graced the meeting. 

Personal attendance not being mandatory will definitely be a great relief as a large number of students have to travel huge distances to reach college.
