AIS is following the advice and directives of the Ministry of Education, the Danish health authorities and Aarhus Municipality in response to the COVID-19 virus.

COVID-19 Update: December 2020

Official guidelines both from the Ministry and the Municipality as to how COVID-19 symptoms and infections should be addressed are being continuously revised and updated according to the latest knowledge about the disease. Some of the topics addressed may be complex to understand but reviewing such official publications is helpful in gaining a better understanding of precautions and guidelines to be observed. Please note the following.

  1. Below are links to the most recent Municipality guidelines in Danish on COVID-19. There are guidelines “for schools” (PYP4-MYP5) and for kindergartens (PYP1-3). Content is almost the same.
  2. An English translation (via google) of the publication on COVID-19 “for schools” is provided.
  3. When in doubt, always refer to the original publication in Danish or contact relevant authorities.
  4. The decision remains that parents are still not allowed to enter the school buildings at AIS.
  5. The section on “travel restrictions” is expected to be updated soon.
