The purpose of this message is to update you on information related to the Coronavirus and the ongoing measures we are taking. Since January, we have been receiving regular updates about the virus from both international and local agencies. Additionally, as with all schools in Bahrain, we receive updates from the Bahrain Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education.
At this point in time, schools in Bahrain are focused on awareness and prevention. As previously shared through the Wednesday Weekly, the same practices for prevention of the spread of any virus are strongly recommended. These include good hygiene practices such as:
The Bahrain Ministry of Health has also issued guidelines which include information about the disease and precautionary steps. Please refer to this site for more information on the Coronavirus and to receive regular updates.
While we understand that the first confirmed case of the virus in Bahrain has heightened concern for some people, we wish to reassure parents that RVIS is taking extra prevention measures through cleaning processes, monitoring of anyone presenting as unwell and keeping well-informed of information shared by ministries. We have ample hand sanitizing stations in our classrooms and throughout the school. We will continue to be vigilant and to share relevant information with our parent community as we receive it.
