WUHAN, GROUND ZERO FOR COVID-19 PANDEMIC REOPENS ALL SCHOOLS
Wuhan, the central Chinese city where the coronavirus first emerged last year, reopened schools and kindergartens for the first time in seven months.
Students in face masks returned to class Tuesday in Wuhan.
Nearly 1.4 million students resumed classes at some 2,800 kindergartens, primary and middle schools across the city, following high school reopening in May.
Schools have drawn up plans to switch back to online teaching should new outbreaks emerge, city officials said last week.
Students were advised to wear masks to and from school and avoid public buses or trains if possible.
Schools were also ordered to conduct drills and training sessions to help prepare for new outbreaks.
