Dear School Community,
Kindly see below a communication from KHDA:
"In line with the recent announcement from Dubai Government, health and safety standards for schools have now been updated.
Face masks are no longer required outdoors. They remain compulsory indoors for all staff, visitors and students in Year 2/Grade 1 and above.
Students or staff who are considered close contacts but do not show Covid symptoms are not required to isolate and can attend school.
Students or staff who are considered close contacts and show Covid symptoms can only return to school when they are free of symptoms, even if they have had a negative PCR test.
Schools must continue to inform parents if their child is considered a close contact.
Students or staff who test positive for Covid must isolate for 10 days.
Health and safety officers must continue with contact tracing.
Consistent and regular sanitisation procedures must continue to be followed.
Safety standards from relevant Dubai Government authorities (Dubai Municipality, Dubai Health Authority, etc) must continue to be followed.
Physical distancing is recommended."
With warm regards,
