A member of the Chatham Public school community has tested positive for COVID-19.
The school will be non-operational effective immediately 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 you receive further advice.
During this time, learning from home resources will be available from the learning from home hub.
NSW Health has requested anyone who has been unwell or if you 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.
Further information about COVID-19 is available on the NSW Government website.
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 staff and students is of paramount importance at all times.
While we recognise this will be disruptive and inconvenient for families, it is important that Chatham Public School follows NSW Health advice and takes all necessary precautions to minimise the risk of further transmission to support our community.
