Dear Parents & Caregivers

As you may be aware, health authorities across the nation are currently responding to the emergence in Australia of the Coronavirus that has emanated from China.

The Department of Education has been monitoring and taking advice from Queensland Health regarding the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) that has originated in Wuhan, China. 

I attach information from Queensland Health which includes advice that if children become sick (e.g. fever, flu-like symptoms, sore throat, headaches, breathing difficulties) after having recently had links to Wuhan or the Province of Hubei within China, or in contact with someone who is a confirmed case, they should present immediately to a doctor and not attend school while unwell. Our school always follows the advice of public health authorities in these circumstances and I would ask you to be especially aware of this current situation in the interest of public health.

Role of QASMT

QASMT will be monitoring the issue and we will make decisions in response to any potential impacts on our operations and community. We will continue to use Queensland Health as the primary source of our information and advice.

 

Staff and students are encouraged to observe normal preventive actions such as washing hands frequently, and using hand sanitizer when soap and water are not readily available.

We have provided hand sanitiser across the school and ask that students do not share food and refrain from shaking hands.

Signs and symptoms

Signs and symptoms of this illness might include:

  • fever
  • a cough
  • shortness of breath
  • rapid breathing
  • a sore throat, or
  • runny nose.  

Preliminary information suggests that the elderly and those people with underlying health problems or compromised immune systems may be at particular risk.

At this stage it is believed that symptoms occur within approximately 2 weeks of exposure.

Thank you for your support in relation to this matter.
