Covid-19 information for students

Update February 16, 2022

During the press conference on Tuesday the 15th of February 2022, the Dutch government announced new Corona measures. The ACC follows the guidelines for classroom education of the Dutch government and the NRTO (Dutch Council for Training and Education). Since Wednesday the 26th of January 2022 (following the press conference on the 25th of January 2022), classroom education is permitted again.

The following applies to students of the ACC:

From the 18th of February 2022
Assigned seating, wearing a face mask and keeping a distance of 1.5 metres are no longer compulsory from the 18th of February 2022. Until the 25th of February 2022, in some locations, it is still mandatory to show a Corona check for admission upon entry (if this is the case at your location, we have already informed you of this by email). For other locations this measure does not apply. 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. For further questions about Corona check for admission, we kindly ask you to contact your training location directly.

From the 25th of February 2022
The Corona check for admission will no longer be used.

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 close 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’.

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.
