Dear Parents

The Department of Education is working with WA Health to monitor and respond to the unfolding international novel coronavirus to take the necessary precautions for students and staff.

亲爱的家长和监护人们:

根据卫生部对于新型冠状病毒的最新信息,教育部决定对所有公立学校采取以下措施。

Update - Travellers from China

From Saturday (1 February) foreign travellers who have left or passed through mainlaind China will be denied entry to Australia for two weeks.

Australian citizens, permanent residents and members of their immediate families will be exempt from the ban but are asked to self-isolate for 14 days from their date of departure from China. 

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) has advised Australians not to travel to China. For the latest travel information visit smarttraveller.gov.au

Update - Students who have returned from mainland China (not just Hubei Province) 

As of Saturday (1 February 2020), all students arriving out of mainland China (not just Hubei Province) must self-isolate in their home for 14 days after leaving China, other than for seeking medical assistance. They are not able to attend school, school events, day care centres or residential colleges. This also applies to parents/carers, contractors, visitors and volunteers on school sites and at school events.

The 14 day exclusion is a precaution to ensure the safest possible environment for children. After 14 days, if the student has no symptoms they may attend school.

Parents/carers should notify their school that the student will be away for the exclusion period, and confirm the date in which they were last in mainland China.

Students in close contact with a person who has a confirmed case of coronovirus

If a student has been informed by Public Health authorities they are a close contact of a confirmed case of the novel coronavirus, irrespective of whether they have developed symptoms, they cannot attend school, school events, day care centres or residential colleges until their local public health unit informs them that it is safe for them to do so.  This also applies to parents/carers, contractors, visitors and volunteers on school sites and at school events.

Parents/carers should notify their school, and evidence from the public health authority is required for the student to return to school.

The WA Department of Health has more information on the virus including factsheets for parents in English and Mandarin and access to a helpline 1800 300 243

Kind regards,

Gavin Power

 

亲爱的家长和监护人们:

根据卫生部对于新型冠状病毒的最新信息,教育部决定对所有公立学校采取以下措施。

去过中国湖北省的学生

曾去过中国湖北省的学生必须在家中隔离14天(从离开湖北省之日算起),看医生除外。学生不得来学校上课,参加学校的活动、去幼儿园或者学校宿舍。此项规定也同样适用于来访学校场所和参加学校活动的家长或者监护人、承包人、访客还有志愿者。

家长或者监护人们应告知学校,该学生将会隔离一段时间,并通知学校最后一次去过中国湖北省的日期。

从中国大陆返回(包括途径,湖北省除外)或香港的学生

在离开中国大陆或香港之后,从大陆或香港返回(包括途径,湖北省除外)的学生请在家中呆满十四天。

尽管病毒传播的风险很低,但是14天的隔离预防措施是为了最大程度的确保孩子们的安全。 14天后,如果没有任何症状,则可以上学。

家长或监护人应通知学校,该学生将会隔离一段时间,并通知学校最后一次去过中国大陆或香港的日期。

与确诊病例有过近距离接触的学生

如果学生已被公共卫生部门告知已与确诊的新型冠状病毒病例有过近距离接触,无论他们是否出现过症状,都不能来学校、参加学校的活动、去幼儿园或者学校宿舍。直到当地公众卫生部门告知他们这样做是安全的,才可执行。这也适用于来访学校场所和参加学校活动的家长或监护人、承包商、访客和志愿者们。

家长或监护人应通知学校,并提供公共卫生部门所提供的证明,方可返校。

如果您的孩子由于上述原因而要离开学校,请与学校联系,告知学校最后一次在中国的时间,并协商孩子在隔离期间的学习安排。
