Dear Colleague WikiVisa - VikiTravel - VikiVisa, 

We are aware that some clients may be worried about the danger of contracting the Coronavirus, and with this in mind we are sharing with you our enrolment policy and information on the virus, and hope this is helpful.  We are also implementing strict cleaning procedures in school and the student houses. 

Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions,

CORONAVIRUS 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION 

The chance of getting Coronavirus (2019-nCoV), in the UK is extremely low.  So far only 2 cases have been reported in the UK. 

We would like to work together with our ETOs to avoid panic, and also any risk to our students and staff.  With this in mind, we ask all our ETOs to: 

  • Before departure, ensure students and any group leaders understand how to avoid infection, are aware of symptoms and understand what to do if they develop symptoms.  See our guidelines below.
  • Provide information about travelling safely drawing on WHO guidance, “Stay Healthy while Travelling”,
  • https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/advice-for-public
  • Ensure students travel via airports of lowest risk.
  • Any student who has visited PRC is asked to wait 14 days from their departure from PRC before travelling to the UK.  They are advised to remain at home and avoid contact with others (‘self-quarantine) during this 14-day period. 

Enrolment Policy

  • Enrolments from hot-spots, currently the PRC (China) only, are delayed until further notice. A hot-spot is defined as an area or country where the UK government has issued a travel advisory.

Cancellation

  • Normal cancellation terms apply unless travel advisories have been issued by the country of departure or the UK Government. 

GUIDELINES

The Coronavirus is passed on in the same way as colds and influenza. You get the virus from another person who already has the virus – usually because you touch something that they have touched, sneezed or coughed on, and then you touch your mouth or nose, so the virus gets inside your body. 

HOW TO AVOID GETTING COLDS/FLU/CORONAVIRUS

  1. Wash your hands regularly. Use soap or sanitiser. Wash between your fingers and include your wrists.
  2. Wear gloves on public transport. You can use normal gloves, but these should be washed at least once a week. You can also use disposable medical gloves if you prefer.
  3. Try not to touch your face or mouth with unwashed hands (or while wearing gloves). Always wash your hands before you eat.
  4. Door handles are one of the most common ways to pass the virus. Try not to touch handles with your bare hands (wear gloves or use your sleeves) or if you have to touch a handle, wash your hands before touching your face.
  5. Try not to shake hands with people. If you have to shake hands because you don’t want to be rude, try to keep your gloves on, or wash your hands afterwards.
  6. Do not share anything that comes in contact with your mouth: do not eat from the same plate as other people. If you are sharing food, take your part and put it on your own plate. Do not use forks, knives, spoons or chopsticks that someone else has used; do not drink from the same glass/cup as someone else.
  7. Face masks do not protect you very well from getting the virus. However, face masks are very good at protecting other people from you if you sneeze or cough. So, whenever you are in a public place or near people and you need to cough or sneeze, wear a mask, cover your face with a scarf or use your elbow to protect other people from your coughs and sneezes.
  8. Do not stand close to anyone who is coughing or sneezing – try to stay at least 1.5 metres away from them if they are not wearing a face mask or have their nose and mouth covered. 

SYMPTOMS OF CORONAVIRUS 

The symptoms of Coronavirus are the same as mild flu. The important sign that it might be Coronavirus is that it affects your breathing as well. 

-       The 1st sign is usually a temperature of 38.0º or higher

-       Then a dry cough

-       You might get other symptoms of a cold, such as a sore throat

-       After a week it starts to become difficult for you to breathe easily 

The treatment you can take is the same as for a cold or flu:

-       Drink lots of water and healthy fluids – such as herbal tea

-       Rest and relax

-       Take paracetamol (unless you are allergic) 

Natural remedies:

-       Hot lemon and honey

-       Fresh ginger tea (with honey)

-       Garlic

-       L-Lycene (an amino acid supplement you can buy in health food shops)

-       Echinacea (a herbal supplement you can get in health and food shops) 

-       Vitamin C + zinc

In our schools, we are currently operating normally apart from a few cancellations or date changes.  Nevertheless, more than 95% of the students enrolled are arriving every Monday as in normal circumstances.

- Informative posters with recommendations in classrooms and common areas
- Increased cleaning services in the school to maintain optimal hygiene and safety throughout the premises
 
In addition, we have held several meetings with our staff and teachers in order keep them informed and aware of any signs of health problem in a student and we have a protocol in place should any medical help be needed

We have informed all hosts of the necessity to increase cleaning as well as hygiene and we have also reinforced cleaning service in our residences and apartments.
 
Cancelation and change of dates policies
 
Our cancellation and change of dates policies are more flexible than usual due to the circumstances. We can offer the possibility of rescheduling courses within a 12-month timeframe at no extra cost.
