COVID-19: Advice, Services and Protocols
The health and wellbeing of everyone at BADA remains our highest priority. There are currently no specific restrictions in place, but there are still steps we can all take to reduce the chance of catching Covid 19. We trust the information below provides you with clear guidance on how Covid is being managed here at BADA.
The following information will tell you what you need to know about our response to COVID-19 and the protocols you are required to follow while you are with us.
Symptoms and Testing:
Symptoms to be aware of are a temperature; sore throat, headache; a runny nose; fatigue; sneezing; cough and loss of taste or smell.
If you experience any of the above symptoms, then we ask you to please take a lateral flow (rapid) test to rule out Covid. Tests are available from the office. If you test positive, firstly, don’t worry, as any symptoms are likely to be mild and usually improve quickly. Please contact the BADA office or send a direct message via Geneva, so we can ensure you are properly supported and informed.
You will then need to isolate (from class) until you test negative, or five days have elapsed. You will be provided with further tests so you can monitor your progress. After five days, if you no longer have symptoms, you may re-join your class, but please avoid close contact with others and take extra precautions such as wearing a mask.
Please wear a mask if you have recently recovered from Covid or are suffering from a cold etc. Masks are available from the office. We trust no one will be judged for the choice they may make to wear a mask for any reason. Social distancing in no longer required but should be observed if you are recovering from Covid. Good hand hygiene is strongly encouraged, in line with current public health guidance. Hands should be washed or sanitized regularly.
The above protocols are held under constant review and may change at any time in line with any recommendations or circumstances. Any changes will be communicated in written form and verbally at the weekly all-school meeting.
