COVID-19 Info & Updates

Updated: May 13, 2022

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic we have created a Dynamic Learning Plan, a flexible plan to ensure our student’s schooling can continue while keeping our students and staff safe. We are constantly reviewing our measures in line with developments and the regulations set out by the state of Hesse. 

Updates from May 16, 2022:

Masks

  • Masks are no longer mandatory
  • Students are welcome to continue wearing a mask if they wish, but they will need to provide their own mask. 
  • Exception: Masks must be worn during indoor gatherings involving more than 50 persons e.g. during theatre performances.

Testing

  • There will be no further COVID testing in homerooms
  • Students who wish to continue testing on a voluntary basis can request two rapid tests per week via an email to the nurses.
  • The nurses will distribute the requested rapid tests to the homerooms for students to collect every Monday (or first day of the week).
  • In the event of a confirmed infection in a class or study group testing of the group is no longer necessary.

Quarantine & Isolation

  • The isolation period for people infected with the SARS-CoV2 virus has been reduced from ten to five days.
  • If symptoms of COVID-19 have occurred, self-isolation must continue until there are no symptoms for at least 48 hours. For this reason, students who continue to isolate are exempt from the obligation to attend classes for the first 48 hours after the symptoms have subsided.
  • Household members- Both vaccinated and unvaccinated household members of people who have tested positive no longer have to go into quarantine. Household members and close contacts of infected people are advised to reduce their contacts for at least five days and to test themselves daily.

Sport & Music

  • Sports and music can take place again without restrictions.
