Information about Covid-19

On this page, we would like to inform you about the actions we have taken at our school sites to keep our students and staff as safe as possible.

How we’ll go about it:

In dealing with this situation, we adhere to the following three principles:

  1. We follow the recommendations of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH), the Federal Council and the cantonal authorities which communicates the regulations for adult education by the Swiss Association for Adult Education (SVEB).
  2. We monitor developments and continually assess the situation.
  3. We communicate changes to the regulations and measures promptly.

The following rules apply at all Academia Languages schools:

  • As from 20.12.2021, a 2G Covid certificate (vaccinated or recovered) is required for classes in all Academia premises. For integration and basic skills courses, as well as for exams, participants with a negative test certificate will also be admitted. Mask wearing remains compulsory in all classes even with a Covid certificate.
  • A distance of 1.5m between all persons whenever possible.
  • Follow the hygiene rules, i.e. disinfect or wash your hands when you come to school and sneeze/cough into your elbow.
  • If you feel ill, stay at home and contact your family doctor.
