The Department of Education and Training in HCMC yesterday sent a document to its divisions in districts and principals of continuing education institutions, foreign language centers and education facilities teaching soft skills asking to strictly implement  the National Steering Board for Covid-19 Prevention and Control’s instructions.

Moreover, the education authority body requested to implement the safety assessment criteria in preschools and high schools.

Additionally, schools must carry out disinfection classrooms daily and periodically according to the regulations. Schools must have soaps and hand sanitizers for students to wash their hand regularly.

Students are required to wear facemasks in classrooms but it’s not mandatory. Schools must take teachers, staffs, and students’ temperature everyday.

Teachers, staffs, and students were advised to travel to coronavirus-hit areas but usually wear facemasks in public places and keep personal hygiene.
