While the threat of COVID in Estonia is low, we would like to share the information and guidance from the Ministry of Education and Research.
The recommendations are the same as last year:
First and foremost, we must continue to remain vigilant in our hygiene practices, washing our hands regularly, ventilating the rooms, and, most importantly, remaining at home if feeling ill.
In the case of symptoms similar to those of COVID-19, it is recommended to take a rapid test. In the event of a positive result, the recommended period of isolation is a minimum of five days. Staff and Students may return to school after five days of isolation if there are no symptoms of illness within the past 24 hours.
If the rapid test is positive, but you are not experiencing symptoms, it is recommended to stay at home and take a rapid test on the following day. If the result is again positive, please contact your family doctor for advice on the next steps.
If you have been in close contact with someone who is ill, no isolation is necessary, but please watch your health carefully.
For the time being, rapid tests will not be conducted at school as we did last year. Rapid tests are available from the school nurse if symptoms appear during the school day.
Thank you for your cooperation in ensuring the health and wellbeing of our community.
