The Tasmanian Government has announced that the current lockdown in Southern Tasmania will be lifted from 6PM Monday 18 October. Tasmanian Government schools will resume usual operation with all students returning to school onsite tomorrow.
Public Health has announced some preventative health measures to keep everyone safe. It will continue to be mandatory that facemasks be carried and worn when outside of the home for people aged 12 years and over until 6PM Friday 22 October. In our schools, this means that students in Years 7-12 will be required to wear a facemask while at school.
In line with other current preventative measures we encourage everyone to:
- continue to practice good hygiene by washing your hands regularly and coughing into your elbow.maintain physical distancing where possible
- stay at home if you have any cold and flu symptoms and for parents to arrange a COVID test
- ensure you are wearing a mask if you leave the house
- if you enter a school site make sure you check in using the Check In TAS App
