COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan

It is important to note that if there are cases of COVID-19 in the community, there are no strategies that eliminate transmission risks within an early childhood education and care community. The goal is to keep potential transmission as low as possible to safely continue operation of the early childhood education and care centre.

This planning tool has been used to assist MOCCA in reopening to full capacity following the end of the ACT Lockdown.

This health and safety plan will outline:

  • Hygiene practices
  • Environmental cleaning
  • Use of the CBR App
  • Staying home when sick
  • Masks
  • Physical distancing
  • Ventilation
  • Wellbeing supports
  • Vaccination
  • Managing suspected or confirmed cases to prevent further transmission

Depending on the public health condition it is possible that there could be additional actions, orders or guidance provided by the ACT Chief Health Officer, ACT Health, or the ACT Education Directorate.

This document outlines both the planning process and the COVID-19 Health and Safety Plan.

The information detailed in the document has been sourced from the ACT Education Directorate and ACT Health as current on 28 September 2021.
