Dear members

This week’s Covid-19 communication covers:

  1. New update as of 30.3.20
  2. Links to previous advice.

As ever the update is issued by BSA in conjunction with our partners BAISIS and ISC. BSA reminds all schools that it is not a medical, statutory or legal authority and any advice is given on that basis.

A.1: What has changed
This time last week the UK was contemplating 5,683 cases and 281 deaths. As of yesterday (March 29) that has risen to 19,522 cases and 1,228 deaths (correct at time of writing). Since last Monday’s guidance, the UK has of course fully entered lockdown, and many schools have begun their Easter holidays, although BSA is aware that many member schools remain in operation for boarders who could not get home or for vulnerable children and children of key workers. BSA will continue to operate throughout the forthcoming weeks and will issue updated guidance every Monday as normal, with more frequent updates only if absolutely necessary. Although our London office is closed, the BSA team continues to operate as normal.
