Swine flu rules for schools

SHANGHAI will suspend classes for at least one week if two swine flu cases are reported in a class within a fortnight and all the classes in a grade will be shut if two or more classes are suspended. If more than two grades are suspended, the school will be shut.

These are some of the Ministry of Health's swine flu prevention measures the local education authority circulated yesterday to local schools, today's Shanghai Morning Post reported.

The measures apply to local kindergartens, primary and middle schools, training schools and summer camps, the report said.

In kindergartens which have been shut because of flu cases, morning temperature checks will be resumed for at least a fortnight after they reopen.

At schools where several cases are detected, assemblies will be suspended.

University students who contract the flu will be confined to their schools.

Stricter management will be enforced as large gatherings will be discouraged for students in the summer vacation.

Local primary and middle school students started their two-month annual summer vacation yesterday.

Yesterday, seven pupils at a Beijing primary school, Nanhu Zhongyuan Primary School, were confirmed with swine flu.
