Head of School Update, December 4: HCMC COVID-19


    Dear SSIS Parents, 

    I wish to update you on the continued measures that we are taking to ensure our community’s health and safety. Although the most recent cases of COVID19 in Ho Chi Minh City are being closely monitored and regulated by the proper authorities, we need your continued cooperation in the city’s epidemic prevention and control measures.

    The Ministry of Health has identified places visited by people who later tested positive for COVID19. They ask us to do our part by notifying them if we visited any of the locations listed here, in the past 14 days.  We will continue to update this link as more information becomes available. If you have visited any of the locations listed, please contact your local Health Authority to ask for guidance. 

    As the HCMC COVID19 outbreak investigation continues, we are asking that SSIS families use an abundance of caution with regards to our campus. If you have been exposed to a positive case of COVID19, then we ask that you stay away from campus and seek medical assistance. If you have any concerns that you might have been exposed, please contact us before you or your children visit campus. If you have questions or concerns at any time, please contact the SSIS Health Office Manager, Lisa Chute: lchute@ssis.edu.vn

    If we receive information about cases with any possible connection to the SSIS community, we will seek the advice of the Ho Chi Minh City CDC (HCDC), International SOS, and the Department of Education and Training (DoET). We will notify you if they consider that there are any potential risks to our community. 

    Thank you for your cooperation with this ongoing matter. We will update you as more information becomes available.

    Please take good care and do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. 

    All good wishes,

    Dr. Catriona Moran

    Head of School
