Armed with electronic thermometers, masked teachers nationwide yesterday waited at the gates of schools to check the body temperatures of the arriving students as they made their way back following the extended mid-year break.
Meanwhile, pupils showing H1N1 symptoms such as fever and cough, will be told to head to the nearest hospital for further inspection.
For the most part, classes were back to normal. However, now, more so than ever, greater emphasis is being placed on cleanliness to prevent the spread of H1N1.
Masks were handed out to students for their added protection, however, some of them had already come prepared.
