new EU ban on travellers from the US

Guesses on whether the new ban will affect someone with a job in the EU who is currently in the US and hoping to return to Europe in August?

What a mess.

Re: So, if the border isn't open...

I doubt my new job will exist in autumn. I got the position through Search, and as soon as I get confirmation that my new job contract is cancelled, I suppose I will be able to reactive my Search profile. But I can't do anything until I receive word for certain. There is no good Plan B and I will pr...

I know from a contact there that the school is in a better financial situation than most, and is truly non-profit. But I can't begin the ...

Re: Let the Bloodbath Begin.....

I'm really scared. I accepted a (dream) post for 2020/21 well before we were hearing much about the .. Now the country where I am supposed to be going is closed to foreigners and is not processing visas.

Admin: will you post your true feelings and predictions re: covid-19 and schools?

Could any admin post what they are saying among themselves, but not telling their staff yet? I'm interested in all speculation and any predictions. I know you can't tell your staff anything until it is confirmed because you don't really know for sure yet, but I'm interested in what you actually expe...

Re: Director Invited me Out - Help!

The thing that would concern me most right now is: does he read this forum? Plenty of people I know do. For a lot of reasons connected to this, I suggest you have the post deleted.
