A grandpa from Thailand has gone viral on social media for using cardboard signs to locate his grandchild at a school full of children wearing face masks.

The adorable moment was posted online by Facebook user Biony Bell Boonyuen last week and has been shared over 7,000 times.

The grandpa was apparently having trouble identifying his grandchild among all the other students with covered faces. They are required to wear face masks to protect themselves during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, he managed to find a solution to this problem, Mothership noted.

Pictures posted on social media show the grandpa holding a signboard with his grandchild’s nickname “Cake,” according to Mashable.

Schools in Thailand were allowed to operate again on July 1 under strict conditions and guidelines, including temperature checks, proper social distancing and the mandatory wearing of face masks, Bangkok Post reported. Schools also added partitions in the students’ desks as another safety measure.
