Please continue to be vigilant in completing your RAT tests as the key tool in protecting our community during this surge in Omicron infections.
One member of Staff did have a positive RAT test earlier this week (prior to coming into a shift).
They are now awaiting their PCR test.
- The Staff member did not have a positive RAT test on their last shift.
- Nor were they symptomatic.
- They have not been at work for 5 days.
Therefore, as far as we know, there was no exposure to other staff or students.
It is a good reminder of the importance of Rapid Testing to protect our community.
Should a Staff Member test positive for COVID and there is reason to believe there may have been exposure to staff or students we will:
- Inform the staff community
- Inform Public Health
- You will be contacted individually if it is deemed you were exposed in a high-contact situation.
Please continue to adhere to all of our protocols. When physical distancing cannot be maintained you must wear a mask and a visor/eye-protection.
If you have a medical exemption from wearing a visor/eye-protection, it is imperative that you maintain physical distancing at all times.
Reducing any and all high-risk exposure is imperative for us to keep up our staff numbers and maintain the safety of our overall community.
