Our school has been advised of a confirmed case of COVID-19 within our school community but on the advice of the Department of Health (DH) and the Department of Education Training (DET) we are not required to close.
DET has advised us no action is required at this stage because the person who is confirmed to have COVID-19 did not come onto the McGuire Campus of GSSC while they were infectious. DH has approved this course of action.
We are further advised that no contact is known to have taken place at our Mooroopna or Wanganui Campuses.
We write to reassure you that all Department of Health protocols are being followed with respect to this matter.
We wish to reassure parents, carers and students that GSSC continues to follow clear and timely advice from our health authorities. We will continue to keep you informed as further health information comes to hand.
Executive Principal, GSSC
