With cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) increasing worldwide, we have been carefully following developments. The safety and well being of our students and staff is our main priority. 

Navitas English continues to follow the advice provided by the Australian Government Department of Health in relation to coronavirus (COVID-19). 

The Government’s position on schools is that they should continue delivering classes as usual, but be aware of the risk of Coronavirus and the steps we can take protect ourselves. 

This video from the World Health Organisation provides more information.

Common symptoms of coronavirus are fever, flu-like symptoms (coughing, sore throat and fatique) and shortness of breath. Any student who is feeling sick with the above symptoms should:

  • stay at home
  • seek medical advice by calling the dedicated Coronavirus Hotline on 1800 020 080.
  • let us know if you are instructed by a doctor to self-quarantine as a preventative measure, so we can support you.
