We want to ensure you that we are taking all necessary precautions at the school as instructed by the National Health agency. We are regularly receiving input from both our head office and the municipality as another school in the community.
The infection protection unit at Region Värmland has decided to carry out contact tracing after one of our employees tested positive for the Coronavirus last week. This has been carried out in accordance with the guidelines of the Public Health Authority (Folkhälsomyndigheten) and relevant guardians have already been contacted by the authority in a logical order. Internationella Engelska Skolan has a close dialogue with the authorities and is following their recommendations regarding our operations and how we communicate. Contact tracing is routinely carried out to limit the possible spread of infection and is part of the preventive work.
No new confirmations have come since the initial investigation.Some staff and students have been asked to stay home for some time as an extra precaution. Others have been told that they may return to school according to health agency. As individuals are deemed healthy by Smittskydd, they will be sent backt to school.
As our main focus is the health of our students and staff we follow the recommendations of local and national authorities. The infection protection unit has decided that our school can remain open and we will continue all our normal lessons and activities. We are well aware of the fact the concerns everyone has during this very trying time for not only our school but throughout the world. Our school, just like everyone is doing everything possible to maintain a sense of calmness and normalcy while at the same time taking all necessary precautions.
