COVID-19 update - Monday 28 February

Dear CBC Families

CBC Fremantle has received information that a member of our community has tested positive for COVID-19 and attended school on 25.02.2022 while possibly infectious.

Students deemed to be close contacts have been collected early by their parents.

Students and staff deemed a close contact by WA Health have been advised directly and are required to get tested immediately and quarantine for seven days from exposure.  These students and staff can return to school on Tuesday, 8.03.2022 provided they have not developed any symptoms and have returned either a negative PCR on Day 6 or RAT on or after Day 7.

Advice for all families and staff:

  • The school remains open.
  • If you have not been contacted, your child is not required to quarantine and should attend school.
  • As for everyone in Western Australia, we ask that you monitor your son/yourself for symptoms of COVID-19 and get tested and isolate until you receive a negative result, if symptoms develop.
  • Please note that the Omicron strain can present with less typical symptoms such as diarrhoea, particularly in children.
  • If you or your child develops symptoms, please do not attend school.

As a Catholic school, the safety and wellbeing of our students is always our priority as is showing care and support for all members of our community. I would ask that you pray for our community members who are now having to isolate, and thank you for your support in this time.  This development may make your child feel worried or anxious, as it may for many of us who are parents. It is important to remember that you can help your son at this time, first by listening attentively to their concerns, and then by providing some reassurance.

Please refrain from sharing this news via social media and allow the school, CEWA and WA Health to communicate the facts – protecting both the privacy and dignity of all concerned.

I will keep you updated with any new information. Please be alert for further communication from ourselves and WA Health.

If you have queries or concerns regarding your child please contact me directly on 0400 880 861 or Jenny Knox Vice Principal on 0499 020 226. If you have health concerns, please contact WA Health on 1300 316 555 or at PHOpsClinical@health.wa.gov.au.

Warmest regards

Mr Domenic Burgio
Principal
