Coronavirus - information for parents

Dear parents/carers

The Australian Government Department of Health has issued advice that all travellers who have recently returned from Hubei province in China, or who have had contact with someone who has a suspected or confirmed case of the Coronavirus, must stay isolated at home for 14 days, other than for seeking individual medical advice.

If you or your child/ren have returned from other parts of China, which is considered low risk, they may attend school and should not be excluded.

Please be assured this continues to be a precautionary measure and the Department of Education is continuing to receive advice from the Federal Government and the team of qualified health practitioners who are managing this situation.

If you or your child/ren are experiencing fever, sweats or chills, or other flu-like symptoms, please see your doctor. Additionally, if you or your child/ren have recently returned from Hubei province in China, please advise me on (phone).

For the latest information (updated 03/02/2020):

Ms Anne White
