If your son has been diagnosed with COVID-19 or has been a close contact of a person diagnosed with COVID-19 and is required to isolate please complete the form - COVID-19 Report Form

If your son has tested positive to COVID-19, please email a copy of the letter or text message from Public Health advising the end of isolation prior to his return to school.  If your son is a close contact please email a photo of the negative Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) taken on the 6th day of isolation.  The email address is covid@stvirgils.tas.edu.au

Please note that this process is required in addition to the normal system for notifying a student absence.
