What You Can Do

We are continuing to enforce good hygiene practices. We ask that you also have these conversations with your child(ren). These include:

- Practicing good handwashing hygiene (especially before eating and after visiting the toilet). Wash hands with soap and water for 20 seconds. Dry your hands with paper towel or a warm hand dryer.

- Discouraging children from touching their face/mouth.

- When blowing a nose, put the used tissue in the bin and wash hands immediately after.

- If coughing or sneezing, cover it well with a tissue (throw the used tissue in the bin), or cough or sneeze into your arm or clothing and wash your hands thoroughly after.

- If your child is unwell, such as a temperature, cough, runny nose or headache, please keep your child at home until they feel better. If there has potentially been exposure to the coronavirus, please seek medical assistance by calling your GP, your local Emergency Department, or Healthdirect on 1800 022 222.
