Schools reopen across Thailand with temperature checks, masks

PATHUM THANI: The country’s schools reopened on Wednesday for the first time since mid-March, with precautions in place to guard against the coronavirus, ranging from temperature checks to installing makeshift cubicles for social distancing in classrooms.

At Sam Khok school, about 50km north of Bangkok, nearly 5,000 students were told to self-quarantine at home for 15-days prior to the re-start as an extra precaution, Principal Chuchart Thiengtham said.

“Once students arrive at school, teachers hand face masks to them because it’s mandatory to wear them,” said Mr Chuchart, adding that face shields were also provided to pupils for additional safety during some activities.
