Parent and Carer COVID-19 Resources

Dear parents and carers, 
The Department of Health has developed a fact sheet for parents and carers, focusing on young people and COVID-19. It includes information about:  

  • symptoms and treatment
  • getting a COVID-19 test
  • COVID-19 vaccines, including how to book an appointment
  • wearing face masks

  • resources to support conversations about COVID-19 with children
  • resources to support mental health and wellbeing.

The fact sheet is available in word or PDF formats:

I encourage you to access the fact sheet and share the information with your children.

If you have any questions or concerns about COVID-19, you can contact the Department of Education and Training’s COVID-19 phone line on 1800 338 663 (available 8:30am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, and 10am-3pm Saturday to Sunday, excluding public holidays).
