Due to prevention measures for the A/H1N1 influenza and traffic control, schools in the capital city of the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region were temporarily closed beginning September the 4th. Today (On Monday), all of the schools reopened in Urumqi.
But now, instead of entering directly into the classroom, students must go through body temperature check, as a way to prevent large-scale group infections.
Parents have expressed their feelings about their children returning to school.
"I'm not worried at all. The school is secure."
"I'm so happy because I can be with my friends again."
