Schools in France reopen with new hygiene measures


Millions of children are going back to their schools in France after lockdowns loosened but are under social distancing measures.

The decision to reopen the schools comes after the nation has seen no recent infections, but officials are still taking precautions. Such measures mean that classes are restricted, forcing students to either attend only part-time or from home but as of June 22, every student must be registered to attend in some form.

Those who are physically attending classes, especially primary schoolers, are having to use the one-meter rule for social distancing.
