Covid-19 information for students
Update September 15, 2021
As a result of the press conference on Tuesday the 14th of September 2021, the one and a half metre measure will cease to apply as of Saturday the 25th of September 2021, but a Corona check for admission will apply in certain locations, amongst which all places of hospitality. This includes training locations that offer hospitality (cafes and restaurants) as part of their facility. The ACC has no influence on this, nor are we involved in the actual check for admission. It is the training location itself that is fully responsible for the checking procedure and policy. We will communicate to all our current and future students what this means for their specific location by email. For further questions about Corona check for admission, we kindly ask you to contact your training location directly.
We urgently ask you not to come to the class day if you:
- Have corona related symptoms. When you have a cold (such as a runny nose, sneezing, sore throat) you should stay at home. Also when you experience coughing, shortness of breath, a fever (above 38 degrees) or sudden loss of smell and/or taste (without nasal congestion).
- Have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for corona within the last 10 days.
- Have been in contact with someone who is currently being tested for corona and has not yet obtained a (negative) test result.
- If one of your housemates or partner/child has corona-related symptoms.
If you cannot join the class day please notify your trainer immediately.
What to do when you have to miss a class day due to corona regulations:
When you are unable to participate in class due to corona symptoms, you will be assigned a buddy from within your group (one of your fellow students), who will practice the exercises from that class day with you afterwards. You will then write a report about this for the teacher. If the teacher assesses this report as sufficient, the class day still counts as a completed class day (due to the 80% attendance requirement). Please note that you can compensate a maximum of 2 class days this way in order to still obtain your diploma.
The teacher will also try to set up a video connection, so you can still attend the class day online when you are not able to participate due to corona. This solution is not guaranteed, but the teacher will certainly do his/her best to arrange this. NB: even when you attend class this way, you will still have to practise with your buddy for this day to count as ‘attended’.
The teacher will explain all this to you further on the first day of class.
Of course we hope that you will all stay healthy, and that you can attend the class days, but these measures are in place to keep the class days safe for everyone and still offer a suitable solution for people who cannot attend.
If you have any questions about this, or when in doubt about participating, please contact your teacher to discuss. If things need to be discussed with us, we will of course be available as well.
