- Daily body temperature checks
- This is the responsibility of parents (for boarders, houseparents).
- If a child's temperature is above 38.5°C, they should not come to the campus (or in the case of boarders, leave their boarding room).
- We recommend that you contact your doctor for further advice or one of the official hotlines
- The child may return to school 24 hours after the symptom has completely disappeared.
Symptoms and tests for children up to the age of 12.
The Federal Office of Public Health (OFSP) confirms that pupils under 12 years of age with mild symptoms (rhinorrhea, slight cough, sore throat, etc.) can go to school if their general condition permits.
Symptoms and tests for children over 12:
The following guidelines have been published by the OFSP.
Pupils over 12 years of age who have symptoms of acute respiratory infection (sore throat, cough - especially dry cough - respiratory failure, chest pain), fever, sudden loss of smell and/or taste, or other symptoms such as headache, general weakness or feeling unwell, muscle aches, a cold, gastrointestinal symptoms (nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, stomach ache) or skin rashes should stay at home and contact their doctor or a testing centre and follow the OFSP recommendations for people who are ill.
If the diagnosis of COVID-19 is confirmed, the cantonal medical service, which is informed by the laboratories and the doctors treating the patient, applies the public health measures appropriate to the situation (investigation of the entourage and isolation and quarantine measures).
If a pupil over 12 years of age is ill but negative for COVID-19, he/she follows the usual rules (isolation for boarders) and does not return to school until 24 hours after the symptoms have disappeared.
In all cases, if in doubt, we recommend that you contact a doctor for further advice or check the symptoms on www.coronacheck.ch
Contact with a positive case
- If staff or students have been in close contact with a positive case, we will apply the measures decided by the cantonal authorities
