Parents will no longer need to be quarantined with a child who has been identified as having close contact with COVID-19.

WA Health unveiled on Sunday night new rules for close contact with COVID-19 cases involving schools.

“Parents and guardians should no longer be automatically quarantined with a child who has been identified as having close contact with a COVID-19 patient,” the statement said Sunday.

“Depending on the child’s needs, one parent or guardian may need to stay home to care for them while the child is in quarantine.

“Parents and guardians of children who are in close contact should take extra precautions and limit interactions with loved ones where possible, and monitor for symptoms.

“If symptoms appear, they should be examined immediately.

“Other family members, including siblings who have not been identified as close contacts, can attend work or school and should also monitor for symptoms.”
