Visitors' Advice - CORONAVIRUS

As a result of the incidence of Coronavirus (Covid-19) and the risk to public health, we have reviewed our public health risk management plans. As part of the overall commitment to ensure a high level of health and well being to its community, Vienna International School manages health and infection risk, following advice from national and global health authorities.

We are therefore currently verifying the travel history of external visitors to Vienna International School:

  • Admissions: Prospective families must contact the Admissions team to request a visit or a school tour, and note the restrictions if they have travelled to or from affected areas. 
  • Other Departments: Visitors to other departments must contact the department they are visiting and note the restrictions if they have travelled to or from affected areas.

For guidance on the latest information and advice, including the list of affected areas, please visit the World Health Organisation.

The School will monitor ongoing developments, coordinate communication, develop response plans and will be making further preparations as required. Our response is coordinated with the school Senior Leadership, Medical Department, Security and local Austrian authorities.
