The increase of confirmed and suspected cases in Switzerland is still growing.

Students with no prior health concerns are not be considered in the high-risk categories, i.e. the local authorities most likely will need to concentrate on the most vulnerable groups. According the statement of the local authorities we need to be prepared that we might not receive the support required beyond the critical cases. Therefore, we are taken the next level of steps to protect our students and staff even more. We must therefore act immediately to minimize risks. 

We thank you in advance for your support and understanding and regret the situation deeply.
