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

Dear students, parents, colleagues and partners

September 25th, 2020 – I am happy to announce that we still have no single case of Covid-19 at B.H.M.S. I would like to express a big thank you to all of you as this is mainly due to all of you strictly following the rules and regulations.

The daily life in Switzerland has found a new kind of normality and we are facing the second real intake after Corona started. Again, we have several students in quarantine as they arrive from various countries. Also this slowly becomes a routine and the planned processes prove themselves.

Still, we appeal to all our students to continue to adhere strictly to the guidelines in daily living: both in this term break and when we return to the classrooms. As you surely heard in the news, this is important as we do not want to see B.H.M.S. under quarantine as other schools had to do. The essential rules to protect yourself, your friends and staff of B.H.M.S. are:

Washing your hands regularly is the best way to protect yourself. Wet your hands under
running water, soap your hands – if possible with liquid soap - rub your hands together until you get a lather, rinse your hands thoroughly with running water and dry them with a clean towel.

Keep your distance from other people (1.5 m). Please also respect this rule in the classrooms, the restaurants and the other facilities.

Wear a mask where it is required (e.g. in public transport).

Stay at home of you have any symptoms of being ill (respiratory problems, a cough and high temperature). Don’t go out in public and avoid contact with other people. Contact Front Office at 041 248 70 00 – we will provide you with food, support and medical care if needed.

As soon as we receive new guidelines from the authorities, we will inform you accordingly.

Let us continue together through this challenging period as well as we did so far.

We will make it together!
