Coronavirus (COVID-19)

For the latest advice on Queensland's response to COVID-19, visit

The health and safety of students, staff and the broader community is the Department of Education’s highest priority. The department continues to take advice from the Chief Health Officer and Queensland Health in making decisions regarding the operation of schools during COVID-19.

The school closures website provides a list of state and non-state school closures as well as Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) service closures.

If your school or ECEC service is closed in response to a COVID-19 incident, the school or early childhood service will provide information directly to parents and carers about the duration of the closure and arrangement to ensure students continue learning.

More information about state school operations during the COVID-19 pandemic is available in the operating guidelines for Queensland state schools and the parent FAQs

Resources to support students' wellbeing, including advice to parents and carers for students during the pandemic, is available on the Education Queensland website.

All early childhood services including outside school hours care (OSHC) and vacation care, remain open and operating unless advised otherwise by health authorities. More information regarding these services is available from the FAQs for parents and carers and service operation information.

If your child is unwell, keep them at home and let your school, OSHC or early childhood service know.
