French schools reopen; boxes and empty spaces to be the new normal

As the number of cases decreased, Franch lifted the nationwide lockdown. As the people were allowed to go back to their normal life, kids returned back to school. From sitting in their specified boxed boundaries, to sanitizing their hands often... this is the new normal.

Social distancing

Students had to follow the rules of social distancing. For this, lines have been permanently drawn in the school premises. Kids are asked to stand maintaining that distance.

Limited seating

For primary schools, markings have been made on tables to help younger kids understand the distance they have to maintain from each other. Each four-seater table can only sit two kids.

Markings in classrooms

Each bench has markings around it which decides the distance a student has to maintain from other. This will help students maintain social distance, and will contain the spread of infection.
