The Premier announced that Victoria will enter lockdown from 11.59 pm on Thursday 15 July to 11.59 pm on Tuesday 20 July.
The first priority of OLGC is the health and safety of the students in our care.
All Catholic schools including OLGC will transition to remote and flexible learning during this period.
The latest information about coronavirus (COVID-19) and schools is available on the Catholic Education Melbourne website:www.macs.vic.edu.au/Coronavirus.aspx. Victoria’s Chief Health Officer has confirmed that the use of face masks or coverings by adults or children is not recommended in schools at this time. As has always been the case, students who wish to wear face masks in school and when going to and from school may do so.
And, finally, a reminder that if you, your child or a family member develop symptoms of a fever, chills or sweats, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, or loss of smell or taste, you should get tested at a coronavirus (COVID-19) testing facility and stay home. If you test positive, please notify me asap.
If you would like health information from the Department of Health and Human Services, you can visit www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/coronavirus. I will continue to communicate with you as soon as we receive further information.
Thank you for your ongoing support to ensure we all stay safe and well. If you have any questions, please contact me.
