The nearly 130,000 students who will be graduating from junior middle school and high school in Shenzhen this summer are expected to return to school and start their belated new semester, which has been delayed by the COVID-19 outbreak, on April 27, according to the municipal government of Shenzhen.

The education and public health authorities in Luohu have warned students not to relax their vigilance and remained guarded against becoming infected with the virus.

With the authorities tightening the screws on their backs, the faculty members have been trained and drilled several times to prepare for the day, hopefully ensuring that students will be well protected. Hence, students are being urged to heed the advice provided, most of which is compulsory: You must wear face masks; you must have your temperature measured at the entrance of the school in the morning; you must keep a social distance of at least 1 meter whenever you queue on campus; you must wash your hands under running water for at least 20 seconds; you must not touch your eyes, nose and mouth with a dirty hand; you must be cooperative during the physical examinations organized by the schools in the morning and at noon, and anyone showing possible symptoms of COVID-19 must be quarantined immediately. School infirmaries, also, must be on full alert to any students that show signs of symptoms.

In addition, students should be arranged to go to the canteen in different batches, which will, to the maximum possible extent, prevent mass gathering; all public sites in school must be sterilized regularly every day; students are advised to avoid public transportation and crowded places on their way home.
