Medical staff take samples for COVID-19 tests.
The tests were conducted between August 31 and September 1.

However, as several students, teachers, and staff have yet to be tested for COVID-19, they would undergo another test on September 2 afternoon, the Da Nang Department of Education and Training announced.

If COVID-19 results are not available on September 3, then these students will be forced to take their exam in private rooms in line with current regulations.

If their results come back negative for the SARS-CoV-2 virus then they will be permitted to join other students in taking their graduation exam in the common rooms.

More than 10,000 12th graders in Da Nang could not sit for graduation exams held nationwide in early August as the COVID-19 outbreak was spreading in the city. They would join others in several provinces in the second phase of the exams scheduled to take place on September 3-4.
