More than 1.7 million students in Ho Chi Minh City returned to school on Monday after having to switch to remote learning for several weeks as part of COVID-19 prevention and control measures.

According to the observations of Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper reporters, students of Tran Van On Middle School in District 1 had to queue up in two lines to have their body temperature measured before entering the school.

They then sanitized their hands upon passing the school gate and had to keep their face masks on all the time.

Similar procedures were applied at Nguyen Du Middle School, and the flag salute ceremony was organized inside classrooms instead of in the schoolyard.

Meanwhile, Hoa Binh Elementary School prepared automatic hand sanitizers at the gate, and all students had their body temperature checked inside classrooms.

Following the Lunar New Year holiday in mid-February, all students were required to switch to remote learning until the end of the month due to the complicated COVID-19 developments.

The municipal People’s Committee issued a document last Wednesday stating that students and learners of local schools, universities, and other educational institutions will resume their normal classes on March 1.

Strict COVID-19 prevention and control measures were required to be taken to ensure safety for students, teachers, and staff members.

The city has not recorded any local infections since February 11.
