The publication gave the example of several educational institutions with unusual innovations. For example, in a Hastings school it is now forbidden to cough or sneeze, humorously speak about the pandemic, and to have targeted contact with another person. In one of the Same London educational institutions for “cough in jest” threatens expulsion.
In addition, students will have to get used to the new rules of toilet access. In Derby, they found a school where each class was allocated their own restroom. Visiting the “foreign” toilets here will be considered a serious misdemeanor.
