A privately-run West Delhi school had to temporarily shut down after a student tested positive for Covid-19.

Principal Shikha Arora further informed that all the children who came in contact with the Covid-1positive students has been informed and the campus will be sanitised. The school adhering to protocols will be closed for five days after which classes will resume.
