    UWCT Campus Access Protocol

    *The email from the medical centre of your negative result from the COVID-19 test should be sent to: info@uwcthailand.ac.th. Prior to taking your COVID-19 test, an option is provided prior to your “swab appointment” to request the results be emailed to you. This is included in the cost of the test and is the proof of a negative COVID-19 result that you will then need in order to email our school receptionist, and receive approval to enter campus. (this is the laboratory result of your test & not the fit to fly certificate).

    **Travel from ASQ outside of Phuket should be direct to campus, with no stops and, preferably, by private van.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Please also remember the importance of staying home when ill. This expectation applies to students, staff and teachers. 

    What type of mask is permitted on the UWCT campus?

    The type of mask used by our staff, teachers and students should follow the guidelines below, in order to minimize COVID risk and in order to limit the designation of High-Risk Contacts with COVID positive cases. UWCT requires all staff to wear one of the approved mask types listed below.

    The following types of masks are deemed effective in preventing COVID spread. We request families acquire this type of mask for their children and themselves and please use only one of these three types of masks while on the UWCT campus.

    1. Triple-layer cloth mask
    2. Surgical mask
    3. N-95 mask
    4. Any other mask with FDA approval
    Should masks be reused?

    UWCT follows the infographic linked, from the Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine, as guidance for the reuse of masks.

    How does UWCT ensure COVID-safe air?

    UWCT has purchased and is installing in all learning spaces and shared office spaces HEPA air purifier units that are proven to filter out COVID from the air and to ensure safe levels of purified air. Additionally, our large, shared spaces such as our Multi-Purpose Hall, also will have HEPA filters installed in short order.

    Does UWCT offer assistance for safe, biohazard disposal for used ATK tests and masks?

    Absolutely! We require all families to deposit their weekly ATK tests for their child in our safe biohazard bins located at the school entrance as a part of their weekly declaration of their child being COVID-negative. We also invite families to dispose of used masks in these biohazard bins as a way of ensuring safe disposal of biohazard waste and as a means of providing adequate protection of our community sanitation workers.

    What is the most important, COVID-related policy to follow?

    As a school, we understand the important protection against personal and community illness that high vaccination rates afford us. We strongly encourage ALL of our staff, families and students to get vaccinated as soon as they are able. This will help our community have the best chance of keeping our campus COVID-19 free, of ensuring we can operate normally and in helping our broader community, on island and in the Kingdom of Thailand, to stay safe and to be well. 

    What is UWCT’s stance on COVID-19 vaccination?

    As a school, we understand the important protection against personal and community illness that high vaccination rates afford us. We strongly encourage ALL of our staff, families and students to get vaccinated as soon as they are able. This will help our community have the best chance of keeping our campus COVID-19 free, of ensuring we can operate normally and in helping our broader community, on island and in the Kingdom of Thailand, to stay safe and to be well.

    Can UWCT help me or my child access vaccination?

    We will do our very best to share resources with the community and to help those motivated to get vaccinated to do so. We recommend registering for vaccination at the following website: www.phuket.win

    Does UWCT require staff to be fully vaccinated?

    No, UWCT does not require staff to be fully vaccinated but we do encourage and support all staff to be fully vaccinated. UWCT is following a protocol similar to that used in Singapore, called “vaccination or regular testing” regimen. This protocol requires those who are not vaccinated (due to a compromised immune system, lack of access to appropriate vaccine options, etc.) to follow a twice weekly testing protocol in order to ensure COVID-free status. The test used for this protocol is the oral or nasal ATK.

    Are UWCT staff fully vaccinated?

    Currently 100% of our staff are fully vaccinated (with two jabs and 14 days post second jab)

    What is UWCT’s definition of “fully vaccinated”?

    According to the Thai Ministry of Public Health, fully vaccinated means the following:

    -2 doses of Sinovac

    -2 doses of Sinopharm

    -2 doses of Sputnik V

    OR

    -1 dose of AstraZeneca

    -1 dose of Moderna

    -1 dose of Pfizer

    -1 dose of Johnson & Johnson

    Immunity is considered to be achieved 14 days after the number of doses indicated above.

    All UWC Thailand staff have received two doses or either Sinovac, Pfizer or AstraZeneca. UWC Thailand staff and teachers are also registered for AstraZeneca booster jabs to be administered in September and October.

    Do parents and household members still need to be fully vaccinated in order for their children to participate in on-campus learning, starting on 01 October, 2021?

    Prior to the 01 October, participants in on-campus programming were required to have households that are fully vaccinated. This is NOT required for on-campus learning as of 01 October, according to Provincial Order number 5896/2564. This means that students from both vaccinated and unvaccinated households can now participate in on-campus learning.

    We have just received our COVID vaccines or completed the final dose of vaccination. How can we inform the school?

    Please fill out the Vaccination Declaration Form in order to update your vaccination status with the school. Thank you for helping keep our community safe!

    Can unvaccinated parents access the UWCT campus?

    Unvaccinated parents can access the UWCT campus, if they meet our Campus Access Protocols. 

    What is UWCT’s COVID-19 testing policy?

    UWCT follows the following testing protocols:

    Currently, this testing protocol is being followed by:

    • All UWCT staff and teachers
    • All UWCT boarding students
    • All UWCT Sandbox participants
    • All UWCT Wellbeing, Sports and Outdoor Education participants
    • All UWCT on-campus learning participants
    Under what circumstances will parents need to be ATK tested themselves and submit their negative ATK test results to the school?

    All parents who come on campus, for short or for extended periods of time, must ensure an updated, weekly ATK test and submit their results via our ATK Test Result Form.

    Time on campus includes, but is not limited to:

    • Parent mindfulness sessions
    • Classroom volunteering
    • Assisting with outings and field trips
    • Manta PTA meetings
    • Manta PTA committee meetings
    • General school assistance
    • Board committee meetings or projects
    • Supporting residential life activities
    • Drop-off and pick-up of students
    • Quick visits to the office
    • Uniform purchasing
    If I just need to come on campus for a “quick” visit, do I still need to ATK test?

    Yes! Any amount of time on campus requires an ATK test weekly.

      Is UWC Thailand holding events on campus? Are they open to the community?

      Yes, UWC Thailand is holding events on campus that welcome our students, staff and families to come together safely. We want to support a safe event and we count on the joint responsibility of our entire community in following protocols to ensure our events are run safely.

      Event Protocol:

      • Only Open-Air events will be allowed.
      • All event participants must submit a recent negative ATK/PCR test and submit their result within one week’s time to the event.
      • All event participants must wear an appropriate, approved mask and have said mask positioned over the nose and mouth at all times during the event. *When eating, the mask can be temporarily removed but then must be worn as soon as possible thereafter.
      • Eating and drinking without a mask in place should be done in your family’s designated eating area (picnic blanket space).
      • Entrance to campus will only be allowed with confirmation of eligibility to attend the event. Masks and ATK tests will be sold at the entrance, for those in need and attendees will be expected to register their attendance at the event for safety purposes.
      • Hand cleaning stations will be available throughout the event venue.
      • Clear signage will ensure that attendees have awareness of space needs and distancing requirements.
      • External UWC Thailand community members are allowed to attend events as guests or vendors, when approved formally by UWC Thailand administration, but they must follow all protocols listed above.
        Refusal of entry and/or Removal from events:
        • UWC Thailand reserves the right to refuse entry to anyone who does not meet our Health and Safety guidelines.
        • UWC Thailand reserves the right to remove guests or attendees from any event at any time if an attendee refuses to comply with Health and
          Safety guidelines.
        Is UWC Thailand participating in interscholastic sporting events? Are UWC Thailand camps open to the broader community?

        At this time, interscholastic events are not allowed on the island of Phuket.

        The coming UWC Thailand camp, scheduled for the month of December and January, will welcome students who are not currently a member of the UWC Thailand student body to join, if they can meet all campus access requirements.

        Is there a separate testing protocol for students from households that are not fully vaccinated?

        At this time, we are not implementing a separate protocol for students from households that are not fully vaccinated. Though we strongly believe that vaccination is a strategy that helps to protect our entire community from COVID-19, the science is very clear that both vaccinated and unvaccinated people can carry COVID-19. Having a separate testing policy for students from households that are not yet fully vaccinated is not needed given the fact that we are requiring all students to present negative ATK tests weekly.

        What if a member of our household travels off the island? Can our UWCT student still attend classes?

        Yes. SHA+, ASQ and COVID-19 testing measures apply to each individual who has travelled off island, not to the rest of the family. If your child stays on the island of Phuket continuously, they do not need to self-isolate. However, if any member of your family has come in direct, sustained (15 minutes or more) contact with someone with COVID-19 or suspected to have COVID-19 please stay home and self-isolate. Additionally, if any member of your family develops COVID-19 like symptoms or suspects they may be ill, please do not send your child to school.

         

        Please additionally fill out the following Travel Declaration Form in order to communicate off-island travel by any member of your family unit.

        Is it okay to travel off the island during the school year?

        Acknowledging that conditions will be ever-evolving (we hope for the better soon), at this time we strongly recommend that students and their families avoid travel off island. Our school community is counting on every member of the UWCT family in order to keep our school population safe and healthy and our campus open for operation.

        What should I do if my child must travel due to essential, urgent circumstances?

        Please notify the sectional principal and Director of Residential Life (if you are a boarding student) in order to receive pre-approval for the desired absence and to ensure your child and family fully understand the required safety protocols upon return to the island. If a student must depart the island, they and their family will be responsible for the costs and the effort associated with protocols for return to campus.

        Where should I look to book ASQ, SHA+ or travel arrangements?

        Click here for more information on SHA+ Hotels,  ASQ or transportation needs.

        Does the school have any recommendations for COVID-19 tests on the island of Phuket?

        If you are participating in Sandbox, your SHA+ hotel should include all necessary COVID-19 tests in your reservation package. Please check with your hotel to confirm. Recommended external COVID-19 test providers:

        HEPA Filters and Awareness of Air Flow

        UWC Thailand is committed to ensuring the air quality in our facilities supports a reduction in the risks of COVID transmission. HEPA filters designed to address COVID concerns are installed in all learning spaces on campus. 

        In addition to our use of HEPA filters, we will also be working to promote activities outside as often as possible and the opening of windows, when appropriate, to support adequate air flow.

                If any member of our community is concerned about possible contact within the last 14 days with a COVID-19 positive case, or if a student or direct family member in the home is presenting any symptoms consistent with COVID-19, we ask that you please refrain from accessing campus until you are well or have determined your level or risk or contagion appropriately. 
                If you are remaining off campus for possible COVID-19 reasons, please contact the school and/or Health Authorities.

                UWC Thailand has a legal duty of care to report any confirmed cases of any infectious disease, whilst in school or at school time.

                  If a student or staff member presents symptoms consistent with those associated with COVID-19, the school will follow the protocol as follows:

                  1. Isolation of the student or staff in the School Medical Center. 
                  2. Limiting contact by unnecessary personnel with the student or staff member.
                  3. Self-administration of an oral ATK test.
                  4. The school will contact the family for immediate pick-up of the student or staff member.

                  If the ATK test result is negative, no further action is taken. If the ATK test is COVID positive, see below for UWC Thailand response. The student or staff member will still be sent home for rest and further monitoring.

                   

                  When the parent picks the student up, a medical recommendation form will be provided which details the symptoms presented and the recommended medical follow-up.

                    If a student or staff member has a confirmed case of COVID or is an HRC and is awaiting confirmation with a PCR, the school will follow the protocol as follows:

                    1. Creation of a timeline by the student or staff member who receives a positive ATK test result for the purpose of contract tracing.

                    2. Preventative home isolation of all students and staff identified by the UWC Thailand COVID Response Team as possible HRCs or LRCs. NOTE: UWC Thailand response to COVID is swift and is in anticipation of the Ministry of Public Health involvement when the PCR test confirms a COVID positive case in our school community.

                    3. UWC Thailand COVID Response Team members will notify all students and staff who are designated as an HRC or LRC in the following ways:
                        a.   Email sent to the designated parent/guardian of the student from our Health and Safety Manager
                        b.   Phone call by a member of the UWC Thailand COVID Response Team to the family impacted. We will make phone calls, whenever possible, in the home language of the family.

                      Frequently Asked Medical Response Questions

                      Is there a different medical response expected now that the UWCT campus has fully reopened as of 01 October? Will the same protocol as the below flow-chart be followed?

                      Medical personnel have informed us that there are no expected modifications to the medical response indicated below.

                      What is the difference between a High-Risk Contact and a Low-Risk Contact?

                      Confirmed Infection

                      Thailand’s COVID-19 infection control is for the infected person to be medically assessed then either hospitalized, local quarantine or home quarantine, depending on condition for 10-14 days or until non-infectious.

                       

                      High Risk Contact (HRC) with a Positive Infected Person

                      Thailand’s COVID-19 infection control for any person who has had close contact* with a person confirmed as positive, is for the person to have a PCR test and be quarantined for 10-14 day (a time frame that varies by hospital response). The possible options for quarantine are:

                      • home isolation
                      • state supplied quarantine facility
                      • an ALQ facility, at your own cost

                      Irrespective of PCR test results during quarantine resulting negative, all 10-14 (a time frame that varies by hospital response) days of quarantine must be respected.

                       

                      Low Risk Contact (LRC)

                      If a person has been in close contact* with a person who is an HRC, they are deemed to be an HRC as well. If a person has been in shared space with an HRC in which the contact time was over 15 minutes and without adequate ventilation and/or without an approved mask, they are deemed an LRC. The LRC person should isolate themselves until the PCR test result of the HRC person. If the result is negative, then the LRC person can return to the general population. If the result is positive then the LRC person must follow the indications of the MInistry of Health.

                       

                      * A person at high risk includes one having close contact with an infected case—defined as having a conversation within one meter of an infected person, without a mask, for at least five minutes, or being beyond one meter of distance in a closed space with an infected person for a total of 15 minutes or more, without a mask.

                       

                      All cases are dealt with by the Thai Ministry of Health and requirements may change without prior notice.

                      UWC Thailand Practice: COVID-19 Positive Case From Staff or Student

                      If a staff member or student tests positive for COVID-19, the following process will be implemented:

                      • Confirm COVID-19 infection with PCR test
                      • Activate COVID Response Team to include the divisional principal, the Health and Safety Manager and the Operations Manager as a minimum.
                      • The COVID Response Team will do a thorough job of contact tracing. Considerations of contact tracing:
                        • Family and sibling relationships
                        • Staff and student groups who interacted without air filtration and masks with the COVID positive case
                        • ECA and CCA participation
                        • Bus 
                        • Weekend and/or service trips
                        • Interaction with the Boarding House
                        • Host Family involvement
