Tackling COVID-19 at Hotelschool The Hague
In order to tackle the COVID-19 crisis within Hotelschool The Hague, coordinated teams were put in place in addition to specific protocols:
Crisis Management Team
Hotelschool The Hague has a Crisis Management Team (CMT) in place, which consists of the Board of Directors, the department heads and Bachelor Management. While the CMT does its utmost to provide and continue education the best way possible, its greatest concern is to safeguard the health, safety, and wellbeing of the entire Hotelschool The Hague community. CMT takes all factors into consideration when deciding how to proceed.
As soon as the Dutch government announces more restrictive or loosened measures, the CMT determines how this impacts education, the students, the operation as well as employees. The Corona Response Team then communicates the decisions to all students and employees.
Corona Response Team
The Corona Response Team (CRT) consists of employees and students of Hotelschool The Hague. Their main objective is to inform and assist members of the Hotelschool The Hague community in taking proper measures. They answer and forward all corona-related questions. When a student shows symptoms, tests positive for COVID-19 or was in close contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19, they are requested to contact the CRT.
Case managers from the CRT offer students council and support in the process of source and contact research, and in helping students to make arrangements for isolation or quarantine. The CRT also delivers a weekly update on the status of COVID-19 at Hotelschool The Hague and manages the email inbox firstname.lastname@example.org
