Coronavirus: Clemens August School resumes lessons on 16 March

The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Bonn is 17 (status: Thursday, 12 March 2020, 12 noon).

The confirmed 14th case is a traveler returning from South Tyrol. Infected numbers 15 and 16 are a couple who have had close contact with several positively tested cases at home and abroad in the past week. Case number 17 had contact with a confirmed case from the Rhein-Sieg-Kreis.

All confirmed cases of coronavirus must remain in domestic quarantine. While on the one hand the public health department determines the direct contact persons of the past days, on the other hand it is in daily contact with the affected persons, who have to measure fever regularly and keep a diary, and inquire about their state of health.

Meanwhile, the woman who returned from her trip, who had been taken to hospital on Tuesday evening, 10 March 2020, as a precautionary measure, is getting better again. She was able to leave the hospital again.

School will resume lessons on 16 March

The Clemens-August-School in Bonn will resume teaching on Monday, 16 March 2020. There was and is only one confirmed case of the OGS employee, whose final test results are still pending after the two-week quarantine. All the other 229 swabs taken from students and care and teaching staff were negative.

During the closure, the Municipal Building Management Department cleaned and disinfected all so-called body-contact areas in the building by a state-certified disinfector: including table surfaces, handrails, door handles, chairs, soap dispensers, light switches, toilet facilities including urinals, towel dispensers and water taps. All floor surfaces were also cleaned.

The school had been closed since 2 March, after the first positive findings had become known in Bonn.

In the meantime, the city administration has also published the announced "general decree banning major events" in the official gazette. It does not yet contain any statements regarding the time limit, as the city has not yet received a response from the state government on this issue.
