The restrictions are significantly more lenient thanks to the global vaccination programs and fewer daily positive cases. These updated rules were drafted, keeping the students' and teachers' health and safety in mind while trying to return to normalcy. Thus, all public schools and colleges must adhere to these new rules from the new 2022-2023 academic session.
