TEA Gardens Public School was closed for deep-cleaning on Monday November 1 after a member of the school community tested positive for COVID-19.

Principal Mark Clemson said on Monday, “Our school will be non-operational effective immediately for the on-site attendance of students and staff to allow time for contact tracing and cleaning.”

All staff and students were asked to self-isolate until they received further advice.

“The safety and wellbeing of our staff and students is of paramount importance to us at all times.

“As such we will continue to work closely with NSW Health to ensure that all necessary health advice is adhered to.

“While we recognise this will be disruptive and inconvenient for families, it is important that we follow NSW Health advice and take all necessary precautions to minimise the risk of further transmission to support our community,” said Mr Clemson.

While Tea Gardens Public was closed at the time of writing, schools are normally only closed for 24 hours to allow contact tracing and cleaning.
