While we are not aware of any confirmed cases of Novel Coronavirus so far in the A.C.T, Aeon Academy is following advice from the Department of Health regarding the recent virus outbreak.
This advice includes:
- All staff and students who have traveled to mainland China (including those who have been in transit through mainland China) in the past 14 days to remain at home
- All staff and students who have been in close contact with someone confirmed to be infected with the virus to remain at home for 14 days after contact
- All staff and students who develop symptoms after traveling to mainland China or coming into contact with someone confirmed to be infected to stay at home and contact their doctor immediately
We are also monitoring staff and students for possible symptoms of Novel Coronavirus, including:
- sore throat
- shortness of breath
More information on the Novel Coronavirus can be found here. The Department of Health website, to which Aeon Academy is subscribed, is updated regularly with health advice and risk information. The Department of Health has also published a factsheet for families which you may find useful.
Our best wishes for all families’ safety and wellbeing at this time!
