COVID-19 update Ashmont Public School non-operational
15 Nov 2021
Dear parents and carers,
I would like to confirm with you that a member of our school community has tested positive for COVID-19.
Our school will be non-operational for the on-site attendance of students and staff to allow time for contact tracing and cleaning.
All staff and students are asked to self-isolate until they receive further advice. There is no requirement to get a COVID-19 test at this time unless you are unwell.
NSW Health has requested anyone who has been unwell or if they develop any symptoms such as a fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, loss of smell/taste, muscle/joint pains, diarrhoea, nausea/vomiting or extreme tiredness to be tested at one of the COVID-19 testing clinics.
The NSW Department of Education will continue to work closely with NSW Health to ensure the health and safety of all students and staff is maintained.
The safety and wellbeing of our staff and students is of paramount importance to us at all times. As such we will continue to work closely with NSW Health to ensure that all necessary health advice is adhered to.
While we recognise this will be disruptive and inconvenient for families, it is important that we follow NSW Health advice and take all necessary precautions to minimise the risk of further transmission to support our community.
We will update you as soon as possible when the contact tracing process has been completed. If you have any non-urgent health related questions in the meantime, please contact NSW Health on 1800 943 553.
