According to a report of Hanoi’s Department of Education and Training, the high-school entrance exam is expected to take place on June 10-11.
Hanoi has a total of 93,362 ninth-grade students registering for the 2021-2022 school year entrance exams.
As of May 31, Hanoi identified 11 ninth graders exposed to coronavirus carriers (called F1) and 133 others in close contact with F1 cases (F2).
Currently, the department is working with the health sector to draw up guiding documents on organizing the exam amid the on-going COVID-19 pandemic.
Previously, the Department of Education and Training issued Official Letter No. 1923/SGDDT-CTTT on May 30 regarding measures against COVID-19.
Under the document, all staff, teachers and students must stay calm and play an exemplary role in carrying out COVID-19 prevention and control regulations.
Officials and teachers must ask for permission of their leaders when traveling out of the city on holidays or on weekends. They are required to fill out health declaration forms on the Ministry of Health’s website tokhaiyte.vn or mobile applications such as NCOVI, Bluezone within 24 hours after returning to the city.
The department ordered ninth-grade pupils not to leave the city until they finish their high-school entrance examination.
Twelfth graders are also requested not to go out of the city until they finish the national high-school examination scheduled on July 7-8.
The move aims to protect health of students amid the rising cases of local infection nationwide.
