Accordingly, a foreign language school in Taiyuan city, Shanxi province has come up with the so-called animal wings and asked all students to wear them at school to limit close contact.
Students’ parents are asked by school authorities to make the “social distancing wings” to the student’s interest. The wings come in different shapes, colors, and creative levels though, all share the same meaningful message “Let’s keep a one-meter distance together”.
The preventive measure is lauded by many people for “being novel” and “is suitable for the mischievous small students who are still not aware of the danger of the virus". Wearing colorful wings is also reported to cheer the students up during class.

“We launched this project partly to pay our respect and honor to the first responders who are sacrificing themselves to the safety of the nation. They are the most beautiful white-shirted angels”, Zhao Gailing, the school’s principal said. She added that this would raise students’ awareness about the importance of social distancing while China is gradually recovering from the severe pandemic.
China is the first epicenter of the novel coronavirus, whose pandemic condition's been gradually put under control roughly four months after the first case reported. Since late April, many educational facilities reopened doors, with preventive measures carefully implemented.
1 to 3 graders in China’s Hangzhou were earlier reported to return schools wearing a hat with one-meter long horizontal plumes on both sides to ensure a safe distance with classmates.
Seniors students in highschools also resumed schools on April 27 to prepare for the coming university entrance exam. All students get their body temperature checked at the school gate and have to show a "green" medical code on a phone app to prove they are not a potential nCoV spreader.
In Xiamen City, Fujian Province, students are asked to patiently line up in a distanced proximity when using the toilet. Some schools allow only 4 male and 2 female students to leave the classroom at the same time.
