On 1st April 2022, after two years of the pandemic, the Swiss Confederation decided to remove all restrictions on Covid. As of today, this disease is therefore considered endemic by the authorities.
Isolation in case of Covid contamination is no longer mandatory, nor is the wearing of a mask in transport. Tests are only recommended for vulnerable persons.
Thus, just like with any contagious disease, to be able to continue to come to school or work, what matters is the general condition of the person, as well as the collective responsibility towards the community.
As Collège du Léman wishes to limit the transmission of disease, those suffering from symptoms or testing positive for Covid are asked to
- Stay home as long as necessary and seek medical advice when necessary
- Wear a mask for at least 5 to 7 days after the onset of symptoms or positive test
- Keep physical distancing as much as possible
- Not visit a vulnerable person
At all times, it remains crucial to
- Wash hands frequently
- Ventilate premises
The experience of this pandemic has allowed us to better understand the important steps to take to avoid transmitting a contagious disease, and this reinforces our collective responsibility. This is why these recommendations remain active in order to protect our community.
