We hope this message reaches you in good health and spirits. Over the last few months, we have been closely monitoring the situation around the COVID-19 pandemic and trying to figure out how a future “reopening” would unfold for our school. At this time it’s very hard to predict what will happen in the next few weeks. After the initial lockdown measures, the number of COVID-19 infections did go down. But as you know, as guidelines have eased we have seen an increase in COVID-19 cases again. We must always remain prepared for any kind of situation. Until a vaccine is found (and even after that), there will always be a risk of infection spreading.
That being said, we have learnt from the lockdown that practical steps can be taken to reduce this risk significantly. Measures such as social distancing, wearing a mask, regular temperature checks, regular disinfecting and other good hygiene practices can go a long way in reducing the risk of infection.
