COVID SAFETY


COVID-19 Update

From Monday 27 June, face masks are no longer mandatory in schools.

It is important that staff, students, and families continue to:

  • Stay at home if unwell, even with a negative RAT
  • Get tested with a RAT or PCR if you have symptoms
  • Practice COVID-safe behaviours such as handwashing and sanitising
  • Maintain physical distancing where possible
  • Be up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations

Staff, students, and volunteers (when on site) must advise the school if they are identified as a close contact. Close contacts are welcome at school following a daily negative RAT. Masks must be worn by close contacts 12 years and over when on site. Staff, students, or community members will be supported to continue wearing masks should they choose.

The college may identify activities or events where masks will be required, and will continue to comply with COVID-19 requirements as advised by Public Health.

Tasmania’s education sectors are working together to support the safe ongoing operations of the school for our students, staff and community.

The safety and well-being of all in our school communities continues to be a priority.

Dominic College continues to implement and update our COVID-19 safety plan and will continue to comply with the requirements set by Public Health.

Children with COVID symptoms are required to remain at home and should utilise a RAT (provided) or PCR test. Children should remain at home while symptomatic or follow isolation requirements if they have tested positive to COVID.

If you do have any questions or are unsure about your situation in relation to any of our protocols, please contact our Compliance Team at [email protected] and they will be able to best guide and support you.
