Corona Alert

March 14th, 2020 /balsam user

Dear Parents,

As a team, let us ensure all Balsam family members are closely monitoring developments with the Coronavirus, and taking appropriate actions consistent with what health officials and professionals have said; and when and where there are mandatory government requirements, we are following them.

To support your health and well-being during the programme in which you are participating, we strongly recommend, as protective measures against the Coronavirus, you do the following:

  1. Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, and especially after using the restroom and before eating. Also, as available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser.
  2. Avoid touching your nose, mouth, and eyes.
  3. Avoid shaking hands and hugging.
  4. If you have upper-respiratory symptoms (coughing, fever, other flu-like symptoms), please notify us and stay home, and we recommend you consult a doctor.
  5. And otherwise, if you need to cough or sneeze, cover your nose and mouth with a tissue or your elbow.
    Following the above steps can make the difference for us and the environment for everyone.

Please note that during the day we will remind everyone of these basic protective and difference-making actions. Also, for your own use, you can find the latest information at the World Health Organization website.


Thank you for being responsible for your own and others’ well being.

Team Balsam
