Stay home if you are sick
The health and safety of our students and staff is paramount. If students are unwell with respiratory illness, they should remain at home until symptoms resolve and, where appropriate, seek advice from a medical practitioner (and call ahead first). Remember to also clean your hands thoroughly for at least 20-seconds with soap and water and cover your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze.
The best way to protect yourself from COVID-19 is the same way you would protect yourself from catching flu or other respiratory illnesses.
Clean your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water, or use an alcohol-based sanitiser with at least 60% alcohol.
Cover your sneeze or cough with your elbow or with a tissue (and dispose of it immediately). Avoid close contact with people who are ill. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
If you are unwell with a respiratory illness you should remain at home until symptoms clear up.
