What you need to know

If your child is not experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, they can continue to attend school, but you should monitor for symptoms.

Students who have not yet had a COVID-19 test, but are showing symptoms of COVID-19, cannot attend school and should get tested immediately and isolate until they receive a negative result. They should not return to school until symptoms have resolved.

Students should continue with twice-a-week rapid antigen testing on school days.

Students who have recovered from COVID-19 do not need to participate in surveillance testing for 12 weeks after their isolation period has ended.

For information on symptoms visit: https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/symptoms-and-risks.

For more information on how to get tested visit: https://www.coronavirus.vic.gov.au/taking-test-covid-19.

If your child returns a positive result, your child has COVID-19. You must:

  • quarantine your child for seven days
  • advise the school about the positive result
  • your child must stay home until their symptoms have resolved and they are well
  • your child completes a rapid antigen test that returns a negative result on day 6 of their isolation
  • everyone in your household is a close contact and whilst student household contacts are no longer required to quarantine, they may return to school as long as they undertake rapid antigen tests (RAT) 5 times during their 7-day period as well as wear a face covering when indoors.
  • Household contacts are required to inform the College that they are attending during the 7-day period.

Reporting your child’s positive test

If your child was at school when they were infectious you need to report the positive case through the Student COVID-19 Test Portal or you can notify the school in writing or by phone.

You must also report your child’s positive test to the Department of Health via the COVID-19 Positive Rapid Antigen Test Self-Reporting Form or call centre on 1800 675 398.
