The NSW Department of Education has been advised by NSW Health that a member of the Wingham Public school community has tested positive for COVID-19.
The school will be non-operational effective immediately for the on-site attendance of staff and students to allow time for contact tracing and cleaning.
All staff and students are asked to self-isolate until you receive further advice.
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.
Please bear in mind we are working to establish a pop-up clinic in Taree asap.
Forster drive through is open 8am to 11am today.
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 we follow NSW Health advice and take all necessary precautions to minimise the risk of further transmission to support our community.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
