Current restrictions

Students can attend school or early childhood education and care settings so long as they don’t have symptoms of COVID-19. Staff and students who are either diagnosed with COVID-19 or have had an exposure to COVID-19 should follow the relevant public health advice.

Students in Years 7 to 12 must wear a mask when attending school. Masks are not required for primary school students.

Parents and carers can come onto school grounds for drop-offs and pick up. Checking-in with the CBR app is no longer needed.

Schools will inform their communities about what these changes look like in their school.
