Covid-19 related security measures that are taken by TANDEM Hamburg

TANDEM Hamburg has opened the doors to the public again. We are running online and face-to-face classes, the latter with a few restrictions. Overall, we follow all social distancing rules of currently 1.5 meters per person, which reduces the number of students per classroom to 5 - 9 students, depending on the room used. We make mouth and nose covers mandatory outside of the classroom, and supply hand sanitizers to all staff and students.
We are currently reducing our cultural programme to whatever seems appropriate and possible. There will therefore not be any larger gatherings such as school parties or excursions in large groups.
