Higher Vocational Schools



Rules and recommendations

Students can participate in practical classes.

Students no longer need to have proof of a negative test for Covid-19. But do not forget the obligation to wear a mask in common areas. Neither the student nor the teacher need to wear a mask during the lesson when the student is seated.

Keep in mind the obligation to wear mouth and nose protection. You can find more here: masks in schools.

The exception to the obligation to wear mouth and nose protection must be substantiated by a medical certificate.

Pupils and supervisors are exempted from the obligation to prove one of the O-N-T facts when visiting:

  • zoological, botanical gardens, museums, galleries, observatories and planetariums, etc.
  • gyms, courts, gyms and other indoor sports grounds, etc.
  • hobby education and other leisure activities (especially various groups)
  • concerts, theater, film and similar performances
  • accommodation services (eg outdoor schools, school trips)

These apply even when there are more than 20 persons. The rule of keeping a distance of 1.5 meters from others also doesn't apply.

The same applies in the case of swimming as part of school activities, if only pupils from one school are present or if the space is separated.
