For classes remaining onsite, here are the additional precautionary measures taken by Alliance Française to ensure your safety:

Students and staff must wear masks when at Alliance Française. Face shields will only be allowed for medical reasons. Young children are encouraged to also wear masks (face shields should not be used as a substitute for mask wear, except for medical exceptions, or where the child is 12 years or younger).

In classroom, group works will be done in groups of not more than 2 people, in line with the permitted group size for social gatherings. 

All activities will be strictly cohortised by class.
