In the Greater Sydney region, masks should now be worn by Early Childhood Education and Care staff. This includes indoor and outdoor environments.

In line with guidance issued to schools, for OSHC services on school sites in the Greater Sydney region, masks will now be required to be worn by educators while in indoor areas. 

It is highly recommended that all educators in OSHC services wear masks in indoor settings, in line with advice provided to schools.

Early childhood education educators do not have to wear masks when providing education and care to children in areas outside of the Greater Sydney region. Educators may choose to wear masks, and masks are recommended when engaging with other adults, such as during pick-up and drop-off, and in administrative areas of the service.

It is recommended that visitors to services wear a face mask where practical. 

Guidelines on: Wearing A Face Mask

You should also follow normal disease prevention measures including hand sanitising, appropriate social distancing between adults and excluding anyone with symptoms or who has been in contact with a confirmed case.
