Kindergartens and Schools Prevention and Control

Kindergartens and schools are places where young children and students live together, who are vulnerable to diseases and easily suffer cross-infection. 

To accurately guide various schools on epidemic prevention and control, protect the health of children and teachers, and maintain normal teaching order, the leading group on virus prevention of the Ministry of Education on March 12 released different guides on COVID-19 prevention and control in kindergartens, primary and middle schools, and colleges and universities.

For the sake of epidemic prevention and control, the students should do the following: 

* Stay at home for a 14-day observation before returning to school if they have a travel or residence history from areas hit hard by the epidemic (such as Wuhan and other areas); 

* Monitor their body temperature and health every day after returning to school, reduce unnecessary outdoor activities and avoid contact with others; 

* Properly wear surgical or N95 masks when in close contact with their teachers and schoolmates, and minimize the scope of activities. 

Schools should do the following:

* Monitor the health condition of students, take their body temperature twice a day, and make records of absence, early leave and leave; 

* Report to epidemic management staff in case of suspicious symptoms among students, and cooperate with medical and health institutions in the management of close contacts and disinfection work; 

* Avoid organizing large-scale collective activities; 

* Ensure ventilation and cleaning in public activity areas such as classrooms, dormitories, libraries, activity centers, canteens, auditoriums, teacher offices and toilets, and equip these places with hand sanitizers and hand disinfectants; 

* Provide online teaching and make-up classes that students have missed due to the epidemic and illness; 

* Arrange make-up exams for students who miss exams due to illness, which will not be recorded in the archives.
