Schools in China face third year of disrupted schedules, demand COVID checks

Students in China are facing a third year marked by unpredictable schedules, as schools across the country postpone classes in a bid to bring COVID-19 outbreaks under control.

Schools in major cities – including the southern tech hub of Shenzhen, panda-rich Chengdu in the southwest and the northern port hub of Tianjin – are pushing back restart dates amid virus outbreaks. Many other provinces, including Zhejiang, Henan, Liaoning and Jilin, are also experiencing delays, according to municipal government statements. Nationwide, 1,293 local cases have been recorded for August 30.
