In Australia our kids all went back in May..no masks required and the government have said no social distancing with students

However come this month we seem to be having a lot of cases in schools! And my kids school just had a cluster which grew to about 25…made up of 11 students. Whereas in most schools here in Australia, the cases in schools don’t seem to have become a cluster

However it could be because they asked ALL of the secondary school to get tested and hence they found so many cases

Although our kids are in primary..we still all got tested

The school did  remote learning for 2 weeks. So sending them back this week after that – I was nervous! However the school has been doing temp. checks for every child. highschool encouraged to wear masks but not junior schools but my kids have said many kids are

So their school is being very careful and I feel safe in sending them

But it did make me relate to what many of you may be feeling if your town has had a lot of cases!
