Education Minister Natthapol Teepsuwan said on Thursday (August 13) that schools across the country are capable of practising the “new normal” in case there is a second wave of Covid-19 infections.

Most schools, including international ones, have started holding classes on campus as of this week.

Over the past four months or so, schools have been holding online classes, and after partially reopening, only some students were allowed to physically attend school in line with social-distancing measures.

The minister said schools nationwide were encouraged to collect students’ information as this was necessary for contact tracing to prevent new infections.

Natthaphol added that his ministry is planning new measures for schools located in border towns, because students from neighbouring countries are not yet allowed to return.

Meanwhile, traffic jams have returned now that students are attending school as per normal.
