COVID-19 Advisory (as at 10 Feb 2020)
Working Together to Maintain a Safe School Environment
In keeping with the measures instituted for DORSCON Orange nation-wide, CJC has put in place further steps to safeguard the health and safety of our college community. These added measures include:
1) To minimise the exposure of staff and students to the public and the mixing of students across schools, all external school activities are suspended with immediate effect until the end of the March school holidays. These activities include learning journeys and inter-school activities. The National School Games have also been suspended. Co-Curricular Activities may continue, but appropriate measures will be taken to reduce the group size where possible. The CJ45 Cross-Country Fundraising on 27 Mar 2020 has been postponed till further notice.
2) Visual screening and temperature taking will continue to be carried out at the start of each school day. With effect from 10 Feb 2020, a second temperature taking exercise will be done in the afternoon for all staff and students. Those with temperatures at or above 38 degrees Celsius, or are exhibiting flu-like symptoms will not be involved in after-school activities and will be asked to seek medical attention.
3) In order to ensure better personal hygiene habits, students will be reminded before their recess and lunch breaks to wash their hands with soap before they eat, starting 10 Feb 2020.
4) Students will not be required to register their attendance at the biometric readers in the mornings. Their attendance will be verified at the morning temperature taking exercise at the start of the school day. Visitors who are on college premises before 8.45am must have their temperatures taken at the guard post and a declaration must be made of their recent travel history.
