A school in Sydney’s east will be closed on Monday after two students tested positive for coronavirus.
Kincoppal-Rose Bay School said in a statement on Saturday that two Year 7 students have contracted COVID-19.
“The safety and wellbeing of our staff and students is of paramount importance to us at all times. As such we will continue to work closely with NSW Health to ensure that all necessary health advice is followed,” the school said.
“Students, their families and school staff have been informed of the infection, and the school is working closely with NSW Health to ensure they receive appropriate medical support.”
The school will be “non-operational” on Monday for both students and staff with no remote learning either.
NSW Health confirmed five new cases of COVID on Saturday.
It also issued health alerts for Kuleto's Cocktail Bar in Newtown on August 28, Bondi Platinum Fitness First on August 31 and Randwick Fitness First from August 30 to September 1 after they were visited by confirmed COVID-19 cases.
Anyone at the Newtown bar between 6.30pm and 9.30pm on August 28 for at least one hour must immediately get tested and self-isolate for 14 days.
As families celebrate Father's Day, NSW Health also advised against visiting Sydney, Blue Mountains or Central Coast aged care homes over the weekend.
"We understand this will be difficult for many families on Father's Day, however our priority is to prevent the spread of the virus into the most vulnerable people in the community," NSW Health's Dr Christine Selvey said in a statement.
