Mask wearing in Schools - Term 3
Masks remain an important measure to stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community and in our schools.
Alongside other COVID Smart behaviours, masks can help reduce transmission of COVID-19 respiratory illnesses in our schools.
Students in years 7-12 continue to be encouraged to wear a mask at school when in crowded indoors environments and where physical distancing can’t be maintained.
Staff and visitors to schools must also wear a mask indoors when physical distancing can’t be maintained.
The Directorate, through your school will keep you updated over the Term.
For more information read the updated ACT Public Schools COVID-19 Management Plan available on the Directorate’s website.
ACT Health has developed an online resource on acute respiratory infections in children which you are encouraged to read.
Thank you once more for your ongoing support.
