Update from French in Normandy Management/in Public Relations /by JK
French in Normandy is taking measures and behaving responsibly in the face of the spreading Coronavirus.
At present and for the foreseeable future, we have no students coming from countries where the virus is causing the most infection but this may change. Any student enrolling from these countries (currently China, Hong Kong, Macao, de Singapore, South Korea and also north of Italy namely Lombardy and Venice) will be asked to follow French government health guidelines and stay at home for two weeks before integrating at French in Normandy. The list of countries is being monitored to ensure that this policy is up to date and in line with French Health authority recommendations.
We are reminding our host families, staff and students of basic hygiene requirements in order to combat contagion (regular hand washing and using tissues once only) and have placed extra hand disinfectants in all classrooms as well as tissues to ensure that these basic procedures are followed.
To minimise the risk of illness among students, staff and visitors we are actively encouraging and promoting good hand washing, cough and sneeze etiquette, and follow French Health authorities advice about keeping any specific individuals away.
French in Normandy is ensuring a clean environment.
It is important that we maintain a clean environment to prevent the spread of illness. All our facilities have good ventilation and regular cleaning practices. We are cleaning surfaces with a neutral detergent followed by a recommended disinfectant solution. Surfaces that are frequently touched with hands are being cleaned daily.
French in Normandy is making every effort ensure that there is a safe working environment for those students that are with us and for those will be arriving and we have made provision for support during their recovery in the unhappy event that we have students or staff affected.
These procedures will be updated on a daily basis
For groups booked at French in Normandy that are unable to travel but who have paid a deposit or the full amount, we will hold the price and a credit until 31/12/2020 and suggest rescheduled dates.
