Changes to COVID-19 advice: update 16 May 202218/05/2022
Rapid Antigen Tests (RATs) in schools for the remainder of Term 2
There are some important changes to COVIDSafe measures for schools that will apply for the remainder of Term 2.
RATs will continue to be distributed to schools, as they have been throughout this school year, for the remainder of this term. However, from Monday 23 May 2022, students and staff will no longer be recommended to undertake twice-weekly RATs.
Students and staff who are household contacts will be required to undertake RATs to attend school (5 negative tests over a 7-day period). Students and staff who are close contacts must not attend the College campuses if they are showing any symptoms and must undertake a RAT.
The ongoing supply of RATs to families in schools will ensure that parents and carers will have them should they need them if their child is a household contact or has symptoms.
Families must continue to notify the Department of Health and the school if their child returns a positive RAT result. Additionally, the College should be informed if any children are household contacts. Notify by email: email@example.com or by phoning 5445 9100.
Students and staff who have tested positive for COVID-19, and have completed their 7-day isolation period, now do not need to undertake rapid antigen test (RAT) screening for 12 weeks after their release from isolation.
