Daily Mail reports that the Chinese government has mandated their students to wear one-meter hats as a way to keep social distancing in their classrooms after schools resumed from a three-month lockdown.

A video seen by the media shows how the hats are made with sticks on both ends to ensure that nobody comes close to the wearer at one metre.

The government is putting up this unconventional method as it continues to seek ways to ease the lockdown that has been active for three months.

It should be noted that the idea of the hats was mooted by the Yangzheng Primary School in Hangzhou in Zhejiang province of China after it welcomed his year 1 to 3 students back on campus on Sunday, April 26.

“We encourage our students to wear the one-metre hats to stay at least one metre (three feet) away from each other,” Mr Hong, the school’s principal said.

Another thing worthy of note is that the teacher had instructed the students to make the hat with their parents at home before coming to school.

The students are also banned from having any physical contact with their classmates and must also not touch their hats.
