Covid-19 Safety guidelines

Covid-19 school procedure if someone tests positive

The school is committed to ensuring the implementation of all the safety protocols required, but we trust in your cooperation and sense of responsibility to keep the campus as safe as possible for everyone. 

Due to the law on privacy, we cannot provide names of people tested positive of Covid-19, but we promptly notify by email the class/classes with all necessary information that has a potential risk of being in contact with him/her and these specific courses will be moved online for the two weeks following the notification.

We remind you of the fundamental points for preventing and avoiding the circulation of the virus:

  1. Call your doctor or medical guard for instructions, if you suspect to have been a close contact* of a probable or confirmed case.
  2. As long as you have not reached the doctor, stay home, away from others and monitor yourself for any symptoms
  3. If you test positive for Covid-19, you must adhere to the instructions provided by the health care authority or by your doctor.

* A close contact is defined as:

  • a person living in the same house of a COVID-19 case
  • a person who had direct physical contact with a COVID-19 case
  • a person who had direct (face-to-face) contact with a COVID-19 case, at a distance of fewer than 1,5 meters and of at least 15 minutes
  • a person who has been in a closed environment with a COVID-19 case in absence of appropriate protective equipment (e.g. face mask).
