Another South West school has recorded a case of COVID-19, with administration officials contacting parents and caregivers on Sunday evening to alert them to the positive case. The case attended the school on Thursday March 10 and Friday March 11. It is not yet known when the infected person returned a positive test result. Adam Road Primary School principal Cathy Allen sent a text-message link to parents about 5.30pm on Sunday, March 13, after receiving advice from WA Health. “There has been a positive case of COVID-19 in Year 6, Room 21 at Adam Road Primary School,” Mrs Allen said in the letter. “They attended school while infectious on Thursday 10th March and Friday 11th March. “If students and staff are identified as close contacts of the case, they will be contacted directly by the school.” Mrs Allen said in her letter all children not required to quarantine were encouraged to return to class as normal on Monday morning. “If your child is not identified as a close contact, your child is not required to quarantine and should attend school,” Mrs Allen’s letter said. “As for everyone in Western Australia, we ask that you monitor your child/yourself for symptoms of COVID-19 and get tested and isolate until you receive a negative result, if symptoms develop. “If you or your child develop symptoms, please do not attend school. “Please note that the Omicron strain can present with less typical symptoms such as diarrhoea, particularly in children. “ WA moved to very high caseload settings at 12.01am on Thursday, March 10. Under these settings, essential and critical industries and services will remain open — with new testing and isolation protocols — to ensure continuity of operations as COVID-19 cases approach their peak. Students in school or early childcare who are asymptomatic but have been identified as a close contact under the existing definitions (but not a household close contact), will be able to continue attending school or childcare and continue their face-to-face learning.
