Advice regarding the Coronavirus

Advice regarding the Coronavirus

The Education Department has advised Principals to provide the information included in this newsletter. As you can see, it is relating to travel advice.
The Commonwealth Government has updated travel restrictions this week.
The extension to existing travel restrictions now applies to visitors from Republic of Korea, Iran and mainland China. Visitors who are not Australian citizens or permanent residents, or their dependants, will not be allowed entry into Australia.
The Commonwealth Government has also advised that visitors from Italy will also be subject to enhanced health screening and temperature testing arrangements.
Some of our students and families may be affected by the travel advice, and I’d encourage you to support each other.
Everyone can protect against infections by practising good hand and respiratory hygiene.
Here are some tips that we all can follow:
1. Cover your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing with a tissue, or cough into your elbow.
2. Dispose of the tissue into a bin and then wash your hands afterwards.
3. Wash your hands regularly using soap and water, including after using the toilet, and before eating.
Please refer to the Department’s coronavirus web page for the latest advice and information.
