If you have been to/or transited through mainland China in the last 14 days and are feeling unwell, see a doctor immediately. 

The advice below is for anyone who has travelled to/or transited through mainland China in the past 14 days, or for anyone who has been in close contact with a confirmed case of Novel Coronavirus and is feeling well.

If you have been in, or transited through, mainland China 

  • You need to self-quarantine for 14 days from the date you departed mainland China.
  • If you begin to feel unwell and develop a fever or shortness of breath, a cough or a respiratory illness during your period of self-quarantine you should seek immediate medical attention. Call ahead to your GP or emergency department and mention your travel history before you arrive.
  • If you experience any other symptom during your period of self-quarantine you should also seek immediate medical attention and mention your travel history before you arrive.

If you have been in close contact with someone who is confirmed to have Novel Coronavirus 

  • You need to self-quarantine for 14 days from the last date of contact with the confirmed case.
  • If you begin to feel unwell and develop a fever or shortness of breath, a cough or a respiratory illness during your period of self-quarantine you should seek immediate medical attention. Call ahead to your GP or emergency department and mention you’ve been in contact with someone with Novel Coronavirus before you arrive.
  • If you experience any other symptom during your period of self-quarantine you should also seek immediate medical attention and mention you have been in contact with a confirmed case before you arrive.

More information about self-quarantine and what happens at the end of quarantine is available here.

As always, the health and wellbeing of our students remains our number one priority and I would ask that you remain alert to your child’s/children’s wellbeing during this time. Children can have a range of reactions during an event like this and, as always, teacher and guidance support is available. If you have any concerns, please discuss them with your child’s teacher.

We continue to take advice from Queensland Health and the Department of Education in relation to this matter and the latest information is available at Novel Coronavirus on the Queensland Health website.

Again, thank you for your understanding and attention to this important matter.

Yours sincerely 

Mark Rickard
Principal
