The Perrottet government is currently distributing rapid antigen tests to more than 3,000 schools and all childcare centres across New South Wales.
“As a parent, I know, many parents across the state are anxious about bringing kids back to school, importantly, though, we can ensure parents and teachers right across New South Wales that we can do so in a safe way,” Premier Dominic Perrottet said on Sunday.
“Part of that plan today involves providing rapid antigen tests for primary and secondary students and for teachers right across our state.
“We are currently distributing to over 3000 schools across New South Wales and, as well, all our early childhood education and childcare centres.
“We will also be providing in similar settings to last year in relation to mask-wearing for teachers and for students – students mandated in secondary school, highly recommended for students year three and above.”
Mr Perrottet said there would be two rapid antigen tests per week for students and teachers.
