After eating, they have to return to their classrooms to ensure Covid-19 prevention and control.

For preschool children, they also have good cooperation with teachers on the first day of returning to school. At Doan Thi Lien Kindergarten in Thu Dau Mot City, children obediently waited for teachers to check body temperature, instruct how to  wash hands and then entered to classrooms. The school now has 4 thermometers and welcomes children with multiple gates so they don't have to wait long. Ms. Huynh Thi Hong Nguyet, Principal of the school, said: “We are delighted when children back to school have integrated well. On the first week, teachers will stabilize the order for children, and at the same time, give them the school’s next educational programs. In addition, Covid-19 prevention and control have also been carried out in parallel with activities of child care and education ”.
