If a student has a temperature of 37.5 degrees Celsius or above,
schools will be required to contact parents or carers to arrange for students to return home. Families will then be encouraged to seek testing for coronavirus or the advice of their healthcare professional who can advise on next steps.
Non-contact infrared thermometers will be provided to government school. We already have two. Children will be tested at the school gate / OSHC from Monday.
This of course may cause some anxiety but you can mitigate against this by having a conversation with your child(ren) prior to arrival.
