Novel Coronavirus

The Department of Health advise that if a student has been in contact with someone who has contracted the virus, they should seek medical advice and stay away from school until they are clear of symptoms for 14 days.

As an extra precaution, if a student has travelled to or through China or Hong Kong in the past two weeks, parents are asked to keep them away from school for a period of 14 days from the date they returned to Perth.

This is a precaution as the incubation period for this virus can be up to 14 days. After that time, and no symptoms, the student may attend school. 

Should you have concerns about the risks to your child, please refer to the Department of Health's website ( or ring the helpline on 1800 300 243.
