Mongolia Altantsetseg Galsan, a teaching assistant, cleans the floors at Byalzuukhai Kindergarten in Erdenet, a city in northern Mongolia’s Orkhon province. “We are cleaning in turns,” Altantsetseg says. “Each of us comes to clean classrooms once a week.” Schools in Mongolia are closed until Sept. 1 due to the spread of the coronavirus. Ariunjargal Mundaa, the director of the school, says keeping the school clean will ensure a safe environment when students return.
