Many schools across Bangkok have resumed in-person classes today, with strict preventive COVID-19 measures in place.

437 schools, under the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) reopened today, after being closed for a month, due to the latest outbreak of COVID-19.

One such school is Thai Niyom Songkroh School in Bang Khen district of Bangkok, where the campus has intensified social distancing and sanitisation measures, in accordance with the BMA’s guidelines, for the safety of the students and to buildconfidence among the parents.

All students were screened at the front gate, and they were urged to check-in via the Thai Chana platform. Students with body temperatures over 37.5 degrees celcius were separated and sent to public health centers for further examination. Student body temperatures are being checked three times a day.

Alcohol gel has been placed around the campus, to encourage students and staff to sanitize their hands frequently.

With 2,786 students, the school has increased its classrooms, because as one classroom can hold no more than 25 students, and the area is large enough to ensure social distancing. The school also added fans, to increase air-circulation.
