Chinese students get creative social distancing ideas
Kids who have returned to a school in China are wearing specially designed “social distancing hats” to keep them safe.
The creative headwear, which they’re calling a “one-metre hat”, ensures pupils returning from several months away from school, space themselves out to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Four classes of first-year pupils at Yangzheng School in Hangzhou, capital of Zhejiang Province in east China, were allowed to return to their classes this week as restrictions were lifted.
Each of the children could be seen wearing a surgical mask and “social distancing hat”, which has a one-metre-long measuring tool jutting out the sides.
Most are made of cardboard, but at least one creative girl has made hers using balloons to make balloon animals.
