Priority placed on flu prevention

THE city is on high alert for the new semester after an outbreak of H1N1 flu in out-of-town schools.

The Shanghai Education Commission has asked schools to avoid large-scale and strenuous activities in the first week of the semester and improve morning checks on students.

Students with temperatures above 37.5 degrees Celsius will be suspended in many districts and a whole class will be sent home if two or more swine flu cases occur in 14 days.

Schools have been advised to separate students into different classes or grades for opening ceremonies via video or in the playground.

Universities and schools for the children of migrant workers are expected to be critical areas.

Students will be asked where they have been on vacation and whether they have been in flu-outbreak areas.
