Novel Coronavirus Update – 5.30pm 30 January 2020
SA Health has further clarified their advice to us in relation to Novel Coronavirus.
The updated advice is that:
Students/children and staff who have travelled to Hubei Province in the last 14 days must not attend school and must isolate themselves in their homes for 14 days after leaving Hubei Province.
People who have been in contact with any confirmed novel coronavirus cases must be isolated in their home for 14 days following exposure.
Students/children and staff who have travelled to mainland China, not including Hubei Province, are able to return to school unless they are contacts of a confirmed case, or they have symptoms consistent with the virus.
All students and staff who have travelled to mainland China should monitor themselves for the 14 days from their departure from mainland China for symptoms of Coronavirus.
If you or your educators have any questions about managing this issue please call the department’s work health and safety team on 8226 1440 (8am to 5pm) or email education.WHS@sa.gov.au.
