Restrictive measures mandatory between 04 August 2020 to TBD

Nobody should go to early childhood education, school or workplace if they have any symptoms of respiratory infection until the possibility of a coronavirus infection has been ruled out by tests. It is good to arrange teaching premises more spaciously than usual and avoid or reduce unnecessary physical contacts. Early childhood education and care should, to the extent possible, be organised so that groups are not mixed or combined. Staff members in early childhood education and care should also work with one and the same group of children. In primary schools, the different teaching groups should be kept separate throughout the school day. In lower secondary schools and in optional subjects, the teaching groups may change if the teaching cannot be organised any other way. Safe distances of 1 to 2 metres should be maintained in contact teaching in general upper secondary schools and vocational education and training institutes, higher education institutions and liberal adult education. Providers of general upper secondary education and vocational education and training and higher education institutions may flexibly decide on safe and appropriate teaching methods and arrangements. If teaching is arranged for a large number of people, it is advisable to use remote connections. Large gatherings are not recommended. School meals should be arranged individually with the students’ own class or group.
