Lake Munmorah Public School will be reopened on Friday, 6 August following two students testing positive for COVID-19.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal said the school has been thoroughly cleaned in accordance with strict NSW Health guidelines.
“Online learning is strongly encouraged for all students but the school grounds will be re-opened and are safe for any child who is unable to learn from home,” Mr Crouch said.
“Approximately 100 students and staff were onsite at the same time as the two students who tested positive.
“The NSW Department of Education and NSW Health have been working throughout the day to identify close contacts of the confirmed cases and communicate directly with them regarding their requirement to self-isolate.
“I want to thank the Lake Munmorah Public School principal Narelle Baldwin, teachers, staff, students and the wider community for ensuring all necessary Health advice is adhered to.”
