A Staff Member at Macleod Preschool has tested positive to COVID-19

2 June 2020

“I can confirm that a member of staff at Macleod Preschool has tested positive to COVID-19. Macleod Preschool is closed up to and including 10 June. We have conducted a deep clean of the service to ensure the health and safety of children, families, educators and broader community.

We are working closely with families who require assistance during this difficult time to ensure they have continuity of education and care.

As per the advice of the Department of Health and Human Services, we have notified the families that have been in close contact with the person, as they need to self-isolate their children.

All staff who worked at Macleod Preschool last Wednesday 27 May 2020 are self-isolating from now until midnight 10 June 2020.

We will continue to follow the advice from the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and the Department of Education and Training (DET) and once we receive further information, we will provide another update.

Our priority is the health, safety and wellbeing of our children, their families and our educators.”
