Mayfield West, Thornton, and Irrawang public schools opened back up to students on Tuesday.
With children back at school for face-to-face learning, Hunter New England Health’s David Durrheim says schools have protocols in place to keep kids safe.
“We see that when Covid gets into schools or early learning centres it can spread very rapidly. The Department of Education has worked very closely with the Department of Health to make sure they have protocols in place to respond.”
After several outbreaks in the area, 90 percent of the Hunter’s eligible population have received their first dose of the vaccine.
