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).
