COVID19 Information

Rapid Antigen Tests
 
  • ​The Department of Education and Training (DET) has made further Rapid Antigen Tests (RATs) available to families via schools.
     

  • If families would like more RATs, please contact the General Office on 5945 1433 and/or have your child present to the General Office to collect some to take home.

COVID-19 Isolation Requirements
 

  • The Victorian Government has announced the end of the Pandemic Declaration and associated Pandemic Orders.
     

  • The following settings, based on advice from the Department of Health, will apply from 11.59pm Wednesday 12th October 2022.
     

  • It is strongly recommended that students:

    • who test positive to COVID-19 stay home and isolate for 5 days

    • should not attend school after 5 days if still symptomatic

    • who are symptomatic but have not tested positive should not attend school

    • advise the school of the COVID-19 positive test result

  • Where students become symptomatic at school they should:

    • be collected by their parents/carers​

    • undergo testing for COVID-19

Reporting positive COVID-19 Test Results

  • The Department of Health recommends that a person who tests positive for COVID-19 should inform those with whom they have recently been in contact, including their workplace, schools and household.

  • Parents and carers will therefore be asked to continue to report positive student COVID-19 cases using the VicED Covid Tool.

  • Where a parent/carer informs the school by phone or written notification, the school should complete the Schools COVID Case Management Tool.

Face Masks

 

  • Staff and students who wish to wear a face mask should be supported to do so, and schools should continue to make face masks available for staff, students and visitors.

  • The Department of Health recommends that masks should be worn by a person who is a close contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 when leaving home.

  • Additionally, the Department of Health recommends that masks should be worn by a person who has COVID-19, for at least 7 days after a positive test, when they need to leave home.

  • Please note that the Department of Health recommends that all Victorians should report their RAT result to the Department of Health online, or by calling 1800 675 398.

  • Families are invited to contact the College on 5945 1433 should they have any queries.
