A special message for parents and carers
Updated advice on novel coronavirus – 2019-nCov
Dear parents and carers
Health authorities across the country are continuing to respond to cases in Australia of the coronavirus that originated in China.
The Queensland Chief Health Officer has updated advice on novel coronavirus as follows:
- anyone who has been in contact with any confirmed novel coronavirus cases must self-isolate (self-isolation means staying at home and not accepting visitors) for 14 days following exposure
- travellers who have visited Hubei Province of China need to self-isolate for 14 days after leaving Hubei Province
- returned travellers who have visited China including Hong Kong SAR cannot attend school, childcare or TAFE for 14 days after leaving China including Hong Kong SAR.
Our service always follows the advice of public health authorities in these circumstances and I thank you in advance for your cooperation and support.
