At least six children have been tested Covid positive in Fatehabad district, days after Haryana government decided to reopen schools. The children were found coronavirus positive in two government schools of Gularwala and Karandi villages of Fatehabad.

Haryana resumed normal classes for children of Class 9 to Class 12 from July 16 and for Class 6 to Class 8 from July 23.
