Third-grade students, teachers and logistics personnel at junior and senior high schools in Guangzhou, Guangdong province, are tested on campus for coronavirus before they resume classwork on Monday.
Students will form lines, spacing themselves 1.5 meters apart, at school gates and provide basic information about their living situation before being tested.
Testing for the students, teachers, logistics staff, security guards, chefs, cleaners, horticulturists and other personnel, has also begun in districts of the southern metropolis, whose population exceeds 16 million.
Test results will be available within 24 hours, said Liu Xue, a doctor from Red Cross Hospital in Guangzhou's Luogang district. The hospital is in charge of administering tests at eight schools.
