KUALA LUMPUR – It is merely the third day since the school is reopened, some students are seen to ignore the standard operating procedures (SOP) highlighted by the government.

Based on an observation of MalaysiaGazette at two schools in the capital today, some Form Five students disregarded compliance on the social distancing of 1 metre after the school bell rang at 12.30 pm.

Right after leaving their school compound, some of the students were seen to gather around by the road side while waiting to be picked up by their transport.

Some also filled the bus stop and sat too close to each other, disregarding social distancing.

It is worrying to see that the students only obey the SOP while they are within their school’s compound but totally ignoring it once they are outside the area.

Nevertheless, most of them put on face masks despite not observing the safe social distance.

Schools were seen to observe the implementation of SOP issued by the Ministry of Education (MOE) in their classes, laboratories and even the toilets when the school session was reopened on Wednesday.

However, it is a whole difference scenario once the school bell rings signalling the end of a school day and students rush out of their schools waiting to go home. –MalaysiaGazette
