  • Before the start of the lesson, teachers should ask about the well-being of students and the presence of coronavirus symptoms If one student is found to have COVID-19, the whole group must go into self-isolation;
  • conduct classes of the same group in the same classroom throughout the day in order to minimize movement between classrooms;
  • make places at all entrances for treating hands with antiseptics;
