The second summer care class in Beijing under the epidemic situation

On August 11, the fifth day of the second summer hosting service for primary school students in Beijing, a reporter from the Beijing News visited the Beijing Summer hosting school. Compared with the first phase, in the case of locally confirmed cases, what is the difference between summer hosting schools in epidemic prevention and control? Is the enthusiasm of students to participate in summer trusteeship affected by the epidemic?

Prior to the 237th press conference on prevention and control of New Coronavirus pneumonia in Beijing in August 10th, Pang Xinghuo, deputy director of the Beijing Municipal Center for Disease Control and prevention, said that since July 28th, 1 cases of local confirmed cases outside Beijing had been reported in Beijing, and as of August 9th, the whole City has reported 9 cases of local infection related to Beijing, including 8 confirmed cases. One case was asymptomatic infection.

Affected by the epidemic, the number of trusteeship students in some schools has decreased

On August 11, starting from 8:20 a.m., more than 20 pupils from 12 schools in Fengtai District, Beijing successively arrived at Fengtai Experimental Primary School (hereinafter referred to as “Beiwu affiliated primary school”) of the middle school affiliated to Beijing Dance Academy. The trusteeship teachers of the school have been waiting at the gate of the school. Wearing masks, the children entered the classroom and sat down next to each other through the temperature measuring door.

Beiwu affiliated primary school is one of the hosting schools for the second summer in Fengtai District. Since the start of the second summer trusteeship, Beiwu affiliated primary school has strictly implemented epidemic prevention and control measures. The reporter saw at the scene that before 8 a.m., relevant staff carried out detailed killing in public places such as classrooms. It is reported that the school will kill twice a day in the morning and evening.

The reporter learned that before the start of the second summer trusteeship, it was expected that 84 students would attend the trusteeship at the Beiwu affiliated primary school. As the trusteeship class was about to start, the epidemic broke out. In order to ensure the safety and health of teachers and students, the school communicated with the registered students. According to the regulations on epidemic prevention and control, students with a record of leaving Beijing within 14 days cannot attend trusteeship at school. Finally, the number of students participating in the second phase of trusteeship was reduced to more than 20.

A primary school teacher in Xicheng District told reporters that the second summer trusteeship undertaken by the school is currently in normal progress, and the trusteeship time is 8:30 to 17:30 every day. However, affected by the epidemic, the number of trusteeship students undertaken by the school decreased from 9 to 6. The primary school requires that students who have been out of Beijing within 14 days cannot attend the second summer trusteeship. Students’ body temperature is measured twice every morning and noon. In case of abnormal body temperature, students will be sent to the isolation room.

The reporter learned from the Haidian District Education Commission that except for the sealing management of the Experimental Primary School of Capital Normal University due to its street, the students are diverted to other schools, and the rest of the summer hosting schools in the district are open normally.
