After incidents at other schools in Vienna, the Institute informs that currently there are no suspected cases at the school.

The emergency response team of Amadeus Vienna has adapted its internal policy on the basis of the new developments across Vienna and the international school community.

For this, Amadeus Vienna has established regular temperature logging as a core measure of early detection in possible cases of COVID-19.

All students, teachers, guests and visitors log their temperature upon arrival and make health and travel declarations.

Among further measures put in place to minimize possible infection are: self-monitored quarantine of travelers from high-risk areas, development of additional handwashing and disinfecting stations throughout the school, and cancellation or postponement of school trips, group visits, events and inter-school fixtures deemed to present uncontrollable risk.

The emergency response team of Amadeus Vienna is closely monitoring further developments on COVID-19 virus.
