Quarantine, closures, mandatory wearing of masks and vaccination regulations; the so-called infection control measures in the Corona pandemic may still be well remembered, although no longer active or required. Warnings for a new virus wave in autumn are currently however making the rounds. So what do the experts say and what should you do if you or your child is ill with COVID?
According to the German Robert Koch Institute (RKI) recommendations and the German Infection control center the situation does not require any infection control measures with regard to quarantine but they do make some suggestions and recommendations:
- Stay at home if you have an upper respiratory infection, fever over 37.8 degrees, head and body aches, sore throat, persistent cough and try and avoid contact with persons in at risk groups, for 3-5 days.
- Or return to school or work when the symptoms have been gone for 48 hours and students or staff feel fit again.
- If necessary, contact the pediatrician or family doctor. Out of surgery hours - ring the medical on-call service (Artliche Bereitschaftsdiesnt) on 116 117 to get advice .
- COVID tests are still available from chemists (Apotheke) and drug stores.
There is no requirement to stay at home if an antigen test shows positive, we leave this to parents’ discretion. More importantly is that the staff or student stays at home with symptoms and is guided by this.
Follow the symptom flow chart available at the top of the page for guidelines on when to stay home and return to school.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to the Health Office if you have any questions or concerns.
