Ram Nation Update: March 29, 2020

Dear Ram Nation,

On March 26, the school received the following announcement from the Chinese government authorities:

  • Starting from 6:00 am March 27, all inbound travelers to Guangdong must undergo a 14 days quarantine in a centralized facility. Home quarantine is no longer an option.
  • Additionally, China has ordered each airline to limit their international flights to one flight to one country per week, starting from March 29.
  • The China Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced the suspension of entry of foreigners holding valid Chinese visas and residence permits from March 28th.
  • Currently, the Guangdong Provincial government has put the proposal for school resumption dates on hold due to the increase of confirmed cases from abroad. The Guangdong Education Department reconfirmed that the resumption date is still under discussion.

According to the Guangzhou Education Bureau, there is currently no projected date for when a resumption date announcement will be made by the Guangdong Education Department. Understandably, these announcements significantly impact members of our community currently in the process of returning to Guangzhou. Therefore, we ask that families please remain where they are until we receive further information.

Our previously scheduled April (Spring) Break (March 30 – April 3) will go ahead as normal with online learning to resume on Monday, April 6.

We will provide more information to our community as it comes to hand.

Until then, stay safe, be well and keep positive.

Kevin Baker
Director
American International School of Guangzhou
