ome students of Shanghai International Studies UniversitySISUwere stranded at school for an over-long vacation, as the COVID-19 epidemic delayed the term of China’s universities. SISU's logistics staff took anti-epidemic measures to ensure the students’ health and safety.

SISU carried out health checks on staff and students right after the outbreak of the epidemic, and established health archives. The temperature is examined at regular time every day. The staff record students’ entering and leaving the dormitory, and the entry of outsiders is strictly forbidden. Cleaners disinfect public areas regularly, ensuring that virus won’t breed.

"The university has done a great job in epidemic control. The dormitory staff take our temperature regularly and check our health. Masks are handed out, which is reassuring.” Zhou Ying, a student from Wuhan, the capital of Hubei Province, said. Zhou was unable to return to her hard-hit hometown after her term as a volunteer in South Korea. Considering Zhou's situation, her counselor arranged for her to return to school as soon as she arrived in Shanghai on Jan. 25.

Ornella Malyan, an international student from Uzbekistan, suffered from a 39 fever caused by the infection of upper respiratory tract during her stay at SISU. Nursed by the dormitory staff and her schoolmates, Ornella has now recovered. “Though my family and friends of my country are not here, everyone around me has given me care and love,” she said. “I feel very safe in China.”

SISU also strictly controls every cooking process to ensure the safety of meals. Food quality inspection and cleaning are strengthened, involving daily disinfection of tables and chairs in canteens. Meals are provided in boxes. “We know that to do our job well is our best effort to fight against the epidemic,” said Qiao Zhongren, a canteen worker.

The school supplied dumplings and Tang-yuan, two traditional Chinese cuisines for festivals, on New Year's Eve and Lantern Festival. This makes stay-at-school teachers and students feel warmth in the face of the epidemic.

SISU’s health services made a campus plan on Jan. 19 to fight against the COVID-19 epidemic. As part of the plan, 18,000 disposable medical masks, 21 body temperature guns, about 100 bottles of disinfectant tablets and 100 bottles of ethanol were purchased before the Spring Festival. The medical staff have been kept purchasing anti-epidemic articles to prepare for the opening of the university.
