Coronavirus Update

Dear St Andrew’s community,


We have just received an update from CEDP. The following is the latest advice:


Students who have had contact with a confirmed case of coronavirus should not attend school or preschool for 14 days, and should be monitored for symptoms.

Students who have visited Hubei Province of China over the last 14 days are excluded from school and should not return to school or child care services for a period of 14 days after leaving Hubei Province.

Students who have travelled to China, including Hong Kong, in the past two weeks should stay at home until after the 14-day incubation period for coronavirus has ended.


Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta continues to monitor this developing situation closely to support student and staff health and wellbeing. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. 


I understand that this is a very concerning issue. Please contact the school if you have any concerns.


Kind regards


Mrs Baird.
