Batemans Bay Public School was non-operational for on-site learning, today Tuesday 11 August 2020, due to a student who tested positive to COVID-19.

The school has been thoroughly cleaned and will resume on-campus learning tomorrow, Wednesday 12 August 2020.

The NSW Department of Education and NSW Health have been working closely to ensure the health and safety of all students and staff is maintained. This work has included identifying close contacts of the confirmed case and communicating directly with them regarding their requirement to self-isolate.

The students and staff identified as close contacts have been notified and have been asked to self-isolate for the required period and not return to school until this time has elapsed.

The school will be vigilant in implementing infection control procedures, including daily cleaning in accordance with normal protocols, the promotion of healthy hygiene habits and will make hand sanitiser available for staff and students to use while at school.

The safety and wellbeing of our staff and students is of paramount importance to us at all times. As such we will continue to work closely with NSW Health to ensure that all necessary health advice is adhered to.

Further information on COVID-19 is available on the NSW Health website. If you have any education-related questions please contact 1300 338 679.
