Response protocols for COVID-19 cases

Last updated 2:40 pm 1 February 2023

  • Positive COVID-19 cases should be reported to the school if they have attended school recently.
  • NSW Health and the Department of Education encourage all students and staff who test positive to COVID-19 to record the positive rapid antigen test (RAT) through the Service NSW website or Service NSW app. Voluntary registration of your positive RAT with Service NSW can help you access health support and antiviral medicines if you are eligible.
  • Parents and carers are asked to select the name of the school or early childhood centre when registering a positive RAT via ServiceNSW.
  • Positive RAT or PCR test results for staff and students should be reported to the school.

Refer to NSW Health's advice for people who test positive to COVID-19 and Advice for people exposed to COVID-19 for further information.
