NEW! As of 01.02.2023
After 3 years of the COVID pandemic, the Corona protection measures have been discontinued in Bremen and Niedersachsen as of 1st February 2023. The obligation to isolate in case of a COVID-19 infection ceases, so NO quarantine is required and the infection does not need to be registered by the school with the Bremen Health Authority.
Many test centers including the University test center are now closed but there are a small number still do COVID antigen tests for those visiting patients in hospital, where a test is still required.
If staff or students are ill they should follow the symptom flow chart available at the top of this page, for guidelines on when to stay home and return to school.
On 2nd February the wearing of masks on public transport in Bremen and Niedersachsen is also no longer mandatory.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to the Health Office if you have any questions or concerns.
