The Karnataka government on Monday declared holidays in all kindergarten schools as a preventive measure against the spread of coronavirus infections.

“Further to the advice received from the Health Commissioner, holidays have been declared for KG/UKG classes in Bengaluru north, south and rural districts,” tweeted Minister for Primary and Secondary Education S Suresh Kumar.

However, it was not yet clear for how long pre-primary classes were to be shut. Many parents were unaware of the move reported on the intervening night of Sunday and Monday.
