China News Service, July 14th, according to Hong Kong's "Sing Tao Daily" website, in view of the continued spread of the epidemic, in order to further protect the health and safety of students, staff and the public, the Hong Kong Education Bureau after comprehensive consideration and consultation with experts, Decided to further tighten a number of measures, including suspension of all school activities for two weeks.
The tightening measures include: schools should make arrangements for examinations as soon as possible, complete all examinations within 2 or 3 days, or postpone/cancel some examinations in order to start the summer vacation as soon as possible; except for examinations, the school must suspend all examinations from the 15th On-campus activities for two weeks, including all levels of make-up and extracurricular activities, until July 28. During this period, all students should not return to school unless necessary. The school should continue to keep the school premises and dorms open on the date before the original summer vacation to take care of students who need to return to school or stay overnight.
Schools must take adequate sanitation and epidemic prevention measures during exams, including appropriate distances between seats, teaching staff and students to wear masks, measure body temperature, and avoid crowd gathering. In addition, the school can only use half a day for exams.
According to the Hong Kong Education Bureau, I understand that schools, teachers and classmates have been suspended for many months. After much patience and hard work, classes have been resumed in stages since the end of May. However, shortly after class resumption, because the local epidemic situation deteriorated again, and the school needed to take the summer vacation early, teachers and students would inevitably be disappointed and helpless. I hope that the students can relax and maintain their physical and mental health, and study at home properly, after the outbreak has stabilized. To welcome the new school year. At the same time, schools should provide appropriate learning and emotional support for students in need.
In addition, the Education Bureau will maintain close contact with health experts and the industry, and in response to the development of the epidemic, finalize and announce the relevant arrangements for the new school year as soon as possible.
