Covid-19

Our response to COVID-19

Preparation, technological expertise, and agility 

The world has not been the same since the first case of COVID-19 was identified in December 2019. The Corona pandemic has forced not only schools into lockdown. Bavarian International School (BIS) was one of the few schools in Germany that was able to smoothly switch to Distance Learning at the highest academic level from one day to the next, as if flipping a switch. 

BIS's highly professional approach to COVID-19 was also evident in its comprehensive hygiene and room concepts, consistent regulations for work safety, cleaning and disinfection, and testing of staff. The BIS leadership team focussed on quick, serious and authentic direct communication including a web page with news, FAQs, links and a Corona tracker. Head of School, Corona Task Force and the team of experienced nurses were constantly in direct contact with health and school authorities.

BIS was the only school in Germany to pilot Corona pool-testing for 6 weeks in cooperation with the laboratory diagnostics company SYNLAB. Since 2021, BIS has had approximately 70 air filtration systems specifically designed for schools, which have been certified by Lucerne Technical University (Switzerland). In other words, BIS has effective air filtration systems in all essential classrooms on both campuses in Munich-Schwabing and Haimhausen.
