COVID x safety

Medical services
UWC Dilijan has a modern, well-equipped medical centre on campus to provide high quality health care for students and staff. The centre has several hospital beds including an isolation ward.

A team of qualified nurses ensure that the medical centre is manned 24 hours per day, and there is an experienced doctor available to staff and students for consultation.

In addition to this exceptional facility, Dilijan is well-served by the Tavush Medical Centre, located only a few minutes from the school campus. The Tavush Medical Centre can provide first-class support for more serious medical issues should they arise.

There is a medical centre on the Program site where the medical staff monitors the Child's health and have direct access to the Client.

The medical staff will exercise their best efforts to keep in touch with the Client and/or the Child’s legal representative to discuss issues related to the Child’s health condition. If it is impossible to get in touch and/or in emergency situations, the medical staff is authorized to make decisions based on the Child’s best interests. The medical staff is authorized to decide whether the Child needs to be transferred to the hospital before the Client arrives and/or before the Client (the Child’s legal representative) provides his/her consent.

The medical staff shall provide first aid to the Accompanying Persons and Visitors on Campus. All expenses related to the further medical assistance provided to the Accompanying Person or the Guest are covered by the Accompanying Person or the Guest. If the Participant’s insurance does not cover the medical expenses, the Program Organizer and the Client shall agree on the allocation of medical expenses.

COVID-19 precautionary measures
Almost all restrictions associated with the COVID-19 pandemic are lifted,  but the situation may change. Our team is monitoring the epidemic situation and, if necessary, is ready to implement the developed preventive measures to minimize the risks. The health and safety of our participants are the priority.

Preventive measures in case of worsening epidemic situation:

– social distance;
– mandatory testing upon arrival to the program;
– quarantine zone with constant surveillance;
– regular thermometry;
– providing emergency communication with parents/legal representatives of children;
–  medical support 24/7.

In case of a pandemic situation emerges, compliance with all required security measures is mandatory. Neglect to comply with preventive measures may result in exclusion from the program.

We hope for your understanding of the possible restrictions on visiting program participants in the event of an unfavorable epidemic situation.

Despite the easing of state requirements regarding anti-COVID-19 restrictions, upon arrival at the campus, each participant and organizer will undergo a mandatory express test for coronavirus infection.
