Covid-19 Safeguarding

Sustainable Hygiene Protocol

The spread of the Covid-19 resulted in a difficult and evolving environment for schools and VET centres all over the world. As the pandemic subsides and the incidence rate per 100,000 people continues to fall, numerous protective measures have been reduced or cancelled. Current restrictions and regulations are different from country to country and they are often written with individuals in mind, not residential institutions that have groups from many countries coming and going during the month.

For daily work at Gut Wehlitz, we have developed a comprehensive hygiene concept that has kept the campus safe and Covid-free since we reopened in April 2021. All groups are required to arrive with a negative antigen, no older than 48 hours, if they are not vaccinated. We conduct three antigen tests in the first week and then once a week until the final week of the stay when we also test the day before departure and issue a certificate that is valid for 48 hours.

The spacious and enclosed building complex of Gut Wehlitz offers ideal conditions for a stable Covid-free zone as long as we practice this protocol. It allows participants to move freely and safely, and to interact with each other. All practical training can take place in the workshops and training rooms at Gut Wehlitz and our grounds also offer enough space for leisure activities.
