Coronavirus Update

Saturday 8th February 2020

Dear Families, carers and community members,

As you may be aware, the situation regarding the emerging outbreak of novel coronavirus has continued to evolve.

The Commonwealth’s Chief Medical Officer and Victoria’s Chief Health Officer have recommended a stronger precautionary approach to managing coronavirus for travellers returned from Hubei province.

This recommendation is that parents/guardians/carers of students should ensure that any returning student is isolated at home and should not attend school for 14 days:

  • following exposure to any confirmed novel coronavirus case; or
  • after leaving Hubei Province.

This same advice applies to any staff who have returned or are returning from Hubei province.

The Chief Health Officer’s current advice is that staff and students do not need to be isolated at home if they have recently travelled in other parts of China or other countries and are not showing any symptoms of the virus.

Please refer to the fact sheet available here .

If you have any concerns or questions, please direct them to the school. The school nurse can be contacted to discuss any concerns you have in relation to the medical needs of your child. 

I thank you in this matter and aim to keep you all up to date with health recommendations.
