State universities are expected to resume physical classes from November month after the completion of the undergraduates vaccination program. UGC expects all students to be vaccinated by the end of October month. Currently all academic and non-academic staff members in state universities have been fully vaccinated.

University Grants Commission UGC Chairman Prof. Sampath Amaratunga says a formal statement will release next week over reopening of universities.

UGC Chairman said discussions are on to reopen universities in November following the prolonged closure due to the outbreak of Covid-19 world pandemic.
