Covid Update – Cameron Street Preschool, Traralgon

Latrobe City Council have been advised by a family of a student, who attends the Cameron Street Preschool in Traralgon, that they have tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).

The affected student last attended the Cameron Street Preschool on Thursday 7 October. On that day the student attended the preschool for the entire day.

Council would like to acknowledge the proactive response by the impacted family. This has allowed Council to act on the advice ahead of formal notification, ensuring the safety of our community.

We understand that this will be concerning for families whose children attend the kindergarten and to our staff. Since being advised of the student’s attendance, management has contacted families and staff who accessed and worked at the preschool on Thursday 7 October who may be classed as close contacts.

As a precautionary measure, in line with COVIDSafe practices, the Cameron Street Preschool will be closed to all children and staff, on Monday 18 October. The closure will allow appropriate deep cleaning to occur.

We understand and acknowledge that this is a time of heightened anxiety for us all. We are committed to ensuring families and staff, who access the Cameron Street Preschool, receive further information and updates as we receive them. Families will be kept informed as to when the service will resume. Council will await further advice from the Department of Health.

People who are identified as a Primary Close Contact linked to a potential exposure site will be contacted by the Department of Health and given the necessary advice and information. We encourage families and staff to remain vigilant – monitor for symptoms and get tested if symptoms present.
