Fahan School continues a proactive and vigilant approach to managing and minimising the risk and instance of COVID-19 in our School Community.
Our decision making has been guided by the Department of Health, The Department of Education, Federal and State Governments and Independent Schools Tasmania. We have also engaged the services of Occupational Physician, Dr Peter Sharman, who will continue to advise us on matters related to the management of COVID-19 at our School.
Important information about COVID-19 is provided in the links below, including Fahan School’s Return to School Guidelines 2022 which are currently in place and will continue to be reviewed and revised in accordance with Tasmanian State Government advice.

Reporting a Test Result
If your child is symptomatic and requires a RAT or PCR test, you must advise the School of its outcome as soon as possible, regardless of whether the result is positive or negative. This should be done via the Fahan School COVID-19 Test Notification Form using this link here. This information will help us to keep track of potential clusters.
Positive results must also be reported to Public Health here.
If you have a COVID-19 related enquiry, please call the Tasmanian Public Health Hotline on 1800 671 738.
