IALCA’s Update on Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Italy

Published Bernice on Thursday, February 27, 2020

IALCA Coronavirus

IALCA, the Italian Association of Language Consultants and Agents, is following, with the utmost attention, the evolution of the situation regarding the Coronavirus in Italy in order to provide updated information both to Italian Agencies and Foreign Schools.

Occurancies of the virus have been registered in a few regions in Northern Italy.

The Presidency of Council of the Ministries,  has issued guidelines for action.

The Ministry of Education, University and Research (MIUR), has frozen every kind of school trip and study trip in Italy as well as abroad for a period of 14 days. As a result, those groups of students that have already booked flights, courses and accommodation have remained and will remain in Italy.

It is hard to say if the enforcement of this measure will be extended, for certain it has had an immediate negative impact both on Italian Agencies and Foreign Schools.   

IALCA is committed to mantain direct contact with MIUR, all Italian Agencies and School Associations abroad in order to provide constant updates on the evolving situation.

IALCA trusts in the foreign Schools’ understanding and flexibility with regard to a possible rescheduling of school groups’ departures and dates of stay.
