General information

Operators of educational institutions must implement control measures to eliminate or minimise the spread of COVID-19 and ensure the health and safety of their workers and others. This is a requirement under Work Health and Safety laws. However, the extent to which educational institutions are currently open to staff or students varies across states and territories. 

You should follow the advice of the education, health and WHS authorities in your state or territory. The Australian Government Department of Health has also published guidance on reducing the risk of COVID-19 transmission in educational institutions. 

If there is a case of COVID-19 in your workplace, your state or territory health authority will contact you and provide you with advice about what needs to be done.
