After COVID19 pandemic, the Government of India has announced countrywide lockdown as one of the measures which included temporary closing of all the medical colleges, educational institutions and universities to curtail the transmission. In order to contain the spread of virus and to ensure proper education of the students, Ministry of Education and University Grant Commission issued several guidelines to the universities and colleges, including the one to impart online education by making the best use of e-resources. Currently we are in the end of second wave, certain precautionary measures will be required to be followed for quite some time to avoid its recurrence, especially in educational institutions like medical colleges. Our medical colleges are varied geographically, in management, in their size, infrastructural capacity, facilities, etc. So, considering all of the above factors they may plan to reopen their campuses in a phased manner, ensuring safety, health and well-being of all students and staff. However, since the states/UTs are in different COVID-19 phases, colleges are likely to face a number of issues at the time of reopening.
