Information About The Corona Virus – SBS Health and Safety

SBS Swiss Business School > News > Information About The Corona Virus – SBS Health and Safety

From June 6th, 2020, the measures put in place to fight the new coronavirus will be extensively eased. That is the decision taken by the Federal Council on May 27th, 2020, given the positive developments in the epidemiological situation in Switzerland.  Classroom teaching at upper secondary and vocational schools, as well as higher education institutions, will be able to resume from June 8th, 2020.  

SBS protection concept will be inline with the recommendation based on the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) as well by the SVEB ( Schweizer Verband für Weiterbildung ). The protection concept describes the requirements that must be met by institutions to comply with COVID-19 health and safety regulations. They are used to determine the protective measures which can only be fulfilled with the collaboration and effort of all the stakeholders of SBS Swiss Business School. These measures aim to protect employees, faculty, students, and visitors at SBS Swiss Business School and the general population from infection of the new coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).

The general protective measures are still valid:

Keep your distance. Protect the elderly by keeping a safe distance. Keep your distance from others in a queue and keep your distance at meetings.

Avoid shaking hands and other physical contact when greeting people.

Wash your hands thoroughly. Wash your hands properly several times a day with water and soap.

Cough and sneeze into a tissue or the crook of your arm. Cover your mouth and nose with a paper handkerchief when you sneeze or cough. If you don’t have a tissue, please sneeze or cough into your elbow, not your hands. This is more hygienic. If you do sneeze or cough into your hands, you should wash them straight afterwards using water and soap, if possible.

Stay at home if you have a high temperature and a cough. If you are feeling sick, it is recommended that you stay at home. This will prevent the disease from spreading to others.

Always call ahead before going to the doctor’s or the emergency department. Call your GP or the canton’s medical hotline (phone 0800 33 66 55) to discuss the next steps.

The health office has also opened a coronavirus hotline that is answered 24 hours a day: +41 58 463 00 00. Its website offers detailed information and videos on how people can protect themselves and others from illness.
