COVID-19 Info Hub
As a College, we are committed to maintaining a COVID-Safe community and acknowledge the support of our parents and carers and trust the following information will help guide parents/carers in what to do for management of positive or close household contact.
Staff and students who wish to wear a face mask will be supported to do so, and the College has face masks available for staff, students and visitors.
It is recommended that masks should be worn by a person who is a close contact of someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 when leaving home.
Additionally, the Department of Health recommends that masks should be worn by a person who has COVID-19 for at least 7 days after a positive test when they need to leave home.
Rapid Antigen Tests
The College has a supply of RA Tests that are available for our Victory community and parents/carers can collect from the Administration Office on request.
We are no longer providing individual RA Test kits each fortnight as there is no longer the recommendation to regularly test throughout the school week (unless showing signs/symptoms).
Management of Covid-19 Cases at Victory
Report the Positive Test Result
Where a student or staff member is identified as a positive case, the following steps should be taken:
- The Department of Health recommends that a person who tests positive to COVID-19 report that result to their employer, school and household. A confirmed case can be reported to Victory Lutheran College – via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
including your child's name, year level, date of test.
- Students who report a positive result are recommended to isolate for a minimum of 5 days and not attend school until their symptoms have resolved.
- Staff who report a positive result are recommended to isolate for a minimum of 5 days and not attend school during that period.
- There is no longer a requirement for principals to inform the school community of a positive case associated with the school.
