Corona (COVID-19) situation at B.H.M.S.

General Information

March 24th, 2020 – Following the new regulations of the Swiss Federal Council, the B.H.M.S. school management informs as follows:

There are currently no known cases of corona infections among students or B.H.M.S. employees

Administration
All administrative services (front desk, counselling, ec.) will remain open as before and all students have contact persons available 7 days a week and 24 hours.

Regular classes
Since 16th March 2020 face to face classes are not allowed according to actual regulations until April 19th, 2020. From Wednesday March 18th, 2020 we will be ready with online classes. In the meantime, students get learning support through our internal systems. We want to make sure that students can follow their original study plan whenever possible.

Restaurant
We have focused all meals in our City Campus Restaurant and offer much more space to the students to eat. Furthermore, we also offer take-away to all students and we will expand the eating hours if needed, to offer all students regular and enough food.

General
As we have to limit the social contacts, we still want to ensure that students have a regular daily structure and will be ready to work seriously in their online classes from Wednesday.

We strongly recommend avoiding any unnecessary travelling within Switzerland and abroad.

There is no shortage of food, hygiene or cleaning products in Switzerland at all and the Swiss Government keeps all necessary shops open. Restaurants, bars and all non-essential activities are closed to avoid further spread of the virus.

Be assured that we will do everything possible to ensure the health and security of our students. Furthermore, we confirm that our health insurance covers all medical costs ac-cording to Swiss legal regulations also in case of a virus infection.
