Online Learning @BIS

Distance Learning @BIS

The Bavarian International School is in a unique position to be able to offer online learning for all students in the event of school closure due to COVID-19. You can view our distance learning plan here and take a look at distance learning in action at BIS here.

Cancelled Events

Risk Areas

Since 10 April 2020, the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) has no longer identified any international risk areas or particularly affected areas in Germany.

COVID-19 has now spread worldwide. Outbreaks have occurred in a considerable number of countries, some of them with large case numbers; the exact case numbers of other countries are not known. There is therefore a risk of transmission both in Germany and in a vast number of regions worldwide. The Federal Foreign Office has now also issued a worldwide travel warning. From an epidemiological point of view it therefore makes sense to suspend the designation of risk areas.

The RKI recommends the wearing of a mouth and nose cover (aka mask)
in certain situations in public areas as
a further building block to protect high risk populations and reduce the rapid spread of infection of COVID-19 in the general population.
