Even though schools in Mumbai have announced summer vacations, teachers and non-teaching staff will not be permitted to leave the city to visit their hometowns.

Mumbai’s civic body, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) gave an order regarding the same. Summer break for state schools and junior colleges in Maharashtra has commenced from May 1, 2021. While, the new academic year 2021-22 will begin from June 15, 2021, as announced by the office of the director of education (primary and secondary education).

The circular authorized by the education department further stated, "The new academic year 2021-22 for state schools and junior colleges in Maharashtra will begin from June 15, 2021. While for the Vidarbha district, considering the climate, state schools and junior colleges will begin the new academic year from June 28, 2021."

After the announcement of the lockdown in March last year, teachers were given the responsibility of battling the pandemic. At that time, teachers were given the important task of working in the control room and overseeing the food delivery process. According to reports, the civic body has asked the teaching and non-teaching staff to not leave the city due to the same reason so that if there is an urgent need to help the citizens, they should be available.

COVID-19 cases are at an all-time high in Maharashtra due to which the state government has decided to impose a lockdown in order to contain the spread of the disease. Meanwhile, the citizens have been asked to stay alert and leave homes only if necessary. Wearing a mask and maintaining social distance has been made mandatory at all times, failing which a fine will be imposed by the officials.
