COVID-19 Updates


  • Wearing of Face Coverings – the guidelines state that you must wear a face covering in public places and on public transport.  Face coverings must be worn in all communal spaces throughout the school.
  • Ventilation – Ensure that you let in fresh air and keep rooms well ventilated.  When a person infected with COVID-19 coughs, talks or breathes, they release droplets and aerosols which can be breathed in by another person. While larger droplets fall quickly to the ground, smaller droplets and aerosols containing the virus that causes COVID-19 can remain suspended in the air for some time indoors, especially if there is no ventilation.


The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:

  • new continuous cough and/or
  • high temperature and/or
  • a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)
