The NSW Government closed the border with Victoria ‪from 12:01am on Wednesday 8 July 2020. All staff and students returning from Victoria after this time must have a permit to enter NSW and are required to self-isolate for a period of 14 days.

All students who have been in Victoria in the last 14 days before the commencement of school must not attend school until they complete the 14 days self-isolation period since they left Victoria.

NSW Health has requested anyone who has been in Victoria and is unwell or has flu-like symptoms arrange to be tested through their local medical practitioner or one of the COVID-19 clinics.

Details of the current advice for people who have recently visited Victoria can be found on the NSW Health border restrictions website.

Students who are unable to return to school due to the border closures or self-isolation will be supported to learn remotely.

We would like to remind our community the most important action you can take is to practise good hand hygiene and physical distancing. Our schools will be vigilant in implementing these requirements to minimise the risk at school.

Information on self-isolation can be found on the NSW Health website.
