Colleges in Karnataka partially opened up on Tuesday even with the spiking COVID 19 cases in the country. Students of final year under-graduation and post-graduation programmes were allowed to appear in the college premises while following proper COVID-related rules and regulations. According to the students, they were also asked to get tested for Coronavirus before the official reopening dates. Campuses have been following proper guidelines to keep the space safe for students and faculty members, while also keeping it thinly populated at all times.
