More eastern suburbs schools have been caught up in Sydney’s latest COVID-19 outbreak, with four children at South Coogee Public School testing positive and Emanuel School notifying parents on Sunday evening of a positive case in a student.

About 550 students at South Coogee Public have been asked to isolate for 14 days after two additional students tested positive on Sunday. These students are close contacts of two previously reported cases at the school, both linked to previous clusters.

It is believed to be the first transmission of the virus between students in a school in this latest outbreak.

It comes as Emanuel School in Randwick notified parents by email on Sunday evening that a student had tested positive.

“All secondary staff and students are asked to self-isolate until you receive further advice. All primary staff and students should monitor for symptoms and if symptoms develop, be tested and self-isolate until a negative test is received,” the email said.

The school will be “non-operational on Monday 28 June to allow time for contact tracing and cleaning.“

A spokesperson for NSW Department of Education said that all students at South Coogee Public have been classified as close contacts and must isolate for 14 days regardless of a negative test result.

“Based on the additional cases and because there are a number of interactions between children in different year groups NSW Health has updated its advice,” the spokesperson said.

“Our priority is the safety and wellbeing of our staff and students at all times.“
