shower 02A university in Northeast China has changed its regulation on how frequently students are allowed to take showers on campus every month after a draft regulation drew criticism ahead of the start of the fall semester in September.

A notice issued on Thursday by Qiqihar University in Northeast China's Heilongjiang Province stirred heated discussions among Chinese web users for stipulating that students could only make reservations for showers at the campus shower center three times every month, as a measure to prevent and control the COVID-19 epidemic.

The first batch of students from the university returned to the campus on August 29. According to the notice, between August 29 and September 4, when the number of students accommodated on campus total 6,500, each student can make reservations for a shower twice a week. After September 5, when the number reaches 18,700, they can shower once a week. However, after freshmen arrive, the students can only make shower reservations three times a month.

The university explained that it was adopting a series of management measures including implementing a reservation system, limiting numbers and taking temperatures to minimize gatherings of people and prevent COVID-19 at the shower center.

The notice soon drew a lot of criticism from Chinese web users on China's Twitter-like Sina Weibo. "It's too horrible to not be able to take a shower for 10 days. So can the leaders of the university set an example?" a netizen commented. "How was the decision made? How did so many leaders come up with such a brainless decision?" another commented. "Since the university will adopt closed management, it is unnecessary to control the shower," a web user commented.

Under the onslaught of criticism, the university adjusted the notice on Saturday on its website, saying university staffers put the draft for the solution to the shower peak problem on the campus website by mistake. The university apologized for the anxiety and trouble it caused to the students, and has ordered related departments to review and make a rectification of the incident.

一个月只能洗3次澡?

8月27日,齐齐哈尔大学发布通知称,将洗浴实行预约、限流管理,待新生报到后,每人每月可预约3次。前述通知一经发布,引发学生吐槽,“天气还不算太冷,十天洗一次澡,完全不合理”。

28日下午,齐齐哈尔大学后勤管理处一名工作人员表示,目前他们已经撤下通知,有不合理的地方还在调整,领导还在商量,以后续的通知为准。

此前,齐齐哈尔大学后勤管理处发布的“关于洗浴中心预约洗浴通知”称,为做好学校洗浴中心疫情防控工作,最大限度减少人员聚集,保证正常洗浴,根据学校新冠肺炎疫情防控领导小组的相关要求,对洗浴实行预约、限流、测温管理。

前述通知提到,根据学生返校情况,分期调整洗浴次数。8月29日至9月4日,住宿生约6500人,此时间段每人每周可预约2次;9月5日后,住宿生约18700人,此时间段每人每周可预约1次;待新生报到后,每人每月可预约3次。

此外,通知规定每名学生的洗浴时间不超过60分钟。有洗浴需求的师生,需当天提前20分钟在指定app上预约,预约人数达到上限后无法预约。

前述后勤管理处工作人员表示,因返校学生比较多,按照防疫要求,洗浴是要分批分次的,后续会在次数上、时间上做出调整。“尽量满足大家的刚需,但跟以前有区别,想要和以前一样多蒸一蒸、泡一泡,还是有差距的。”
