A kindergarten has solicited a strong response online after a series of pictures surfaced of the extreme measures it’s taken amid the coronavirus pandemic.
And since pictures emerged, it’s measures hugely divided opinion online.
Despite these subtle changes, there finally seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel.
With things beginning to reopen again.
This is very important because we need to stop the spread of the virus.
Including here in the U.S.
For example, in some retail stores like Costco, customers are required to wear one. And not to mention on public transport.
To provide them with peace of mind. I mean, that seems to be a good idea. Along with that, people are carrying around bottles of hand sanitizer and wet wipes.
Not only are they in short supply, after most countries in the world are requiring PPE.
Particularly when they are worn for a long period of time.
But the uncomfortable nature is a small price to pay for the safety they could provide.
Both for themselves and for essential workers, as they are not being provided with enough.
Healthline describes them as “crucial in the fight against the pandemic.” They stressed that this rule is to protect others and not yourself. Wearing a mask reduces the transmission of the disease by at least half.
Although some are taking it more seriously than others.
Schools in the country were given the green light to reopen back in July.
As well as temperature checks and regular sanitization.
With some going to pretty extreme lengths to protect each other from the virus.
To begin with, when students arrive at school teachers give the children a face mask to wear throughout the day, while face shields are also provided in some cases.
Sinks and soap dispensers have been built outside classrooms and children are required to have a temperature check when they arrive, with a facial recognition scanner automatically sending a message to parents.
The protective screens are to ensure social distancing measures are followed.
And, according to one student, the children feel much safer this way.
“I feel good studying behind the box because it makes me feel safer returning to school,” said student Kanlaya Srimongkhol.
Reactions online have been pretty divided.
And raised the point that it’s better than kids not being able to interact with other children their own age.
In fact, the majority condemned the whole thing.
With many parents going as far as to describe the boxes as “jail.”
Either way, it’s clear the school is focused on protecting staff and students from the virus.
Another school recently went viral for their handling of the pandemic, but not for the same reason…
