New rules for kindergartens

CHINESE kindergartens and nurseries will soon no longer be allowed to turn down children carrying hepatitis B who have normal liver function, according to a draft government regulation.

The draft, which is open to public feedback till August 15, is expected to replace the current regulation, which does not include such a requirement, a source with the Ministry of Health said yesterday.

The draft regulation, applying to all kindergartens and nurseries with children under six, also requires them to report to medical authorities and enforce strict sterilization measures if they found infected children.

Children will have to present official health records on entry into nursery institutions, and their guardians must take them for treatment should they display infectious symptoms.

When they return, children will be required to show medical recovery documents. Those away for three months or longer will have to present a new health check record if they want to return.

Kindergartens will have to recruit at least one professional medical staff member for every 150 children. Those with less than 150 children must have at least part-time medical staff.
