The situation with COVID-19 is constantly evolving, and there is an extraordinary amount of information circulating which can be both overwhelming and difficult to navigate.

As information is changing so quickly, we encourage you to visit the following websites for the latest advice: The Federal Government’s Health Direct and Smartraveller websites, and the WA Department of Health.

Our resources below are for parents, families and schools, in which our experts provide the latest advice and address concerns coming from the community. We want to make sure that we can provide reliable, evidence-based, up-to-date information that you can use when you’re having conversations with your children, family and friends. In these resources, we acknowledge areas of uncertainty as the situation evolves, but give advice based on the best available evidence at the time.
