Quarantine lifted for more than 900 families

More than 900 families whose children attend Windaroo State School no longer have to quarantine.

Chief Health Officer Dr Jeannette Young said that she was satisfied that the risk is sufficiently low and that most of the families can leave quarantine immediately.

“More than 900 families who have been doing such a great job adhering to quarantine,” Dr Young said.

“All 20 contacts in the room and the 29 who visited Mt Warren School have all come back with negative results, as have the 36 students from the before and after school care.

“That is a fantastic result so far, but we are not out of the woods yet.

“I am confident that the risk to most of those families is very low, which is why the quarantine orders will be lifted for the Windaroo State School families.

“However, the before and after school care at the early learning centre remains as a close contact location so those families will need to continue to quarantine for the full 14 days.

“I want to thank all of these families for doing such a great job in quarantine and for their actions in keeping the rest of us safe.

“I’m also pleased to confirm the family of the last two children have agreed to let them be tested, and the results also came back negative.”
