"In addition, we also consider that only students who have been vaccinated can participate in the PTM. Moreover, we also have prepared the classrooms.”
“Other preparations, for the practicum activity, due to the laboratory rooms having no ventilation, maybe we will use another place for the practicum activity, so it can be held offline. We have also prepared other facilities other than just the hand washing facilities.” explained Dr. Maya.
