Delta variant proves a challenge for schools

Young people are spreading Covid-19 faster than anyone since the Delta outbreak began and vaccination remains the best protection against the virus.

Young people are spreading Covid-19’s delta variant faster than any other demographic and schools across Australia have responded with strong recommendations for staff and eligible students to be vaccinated in time for the final term.
Victoria has implemented mandatory Covid-19 vaccination rules for education workers, and while such a mandate has not been introduced here, SA’s Department of Education and the peak body for the State’s Catholic schools have strongly recommended all school staff be vaccinated.
