More students return to ACT classrooms

More students have made their return to Canberra’s classrooms after months of learning from home due to the COVID-19 lockdown.

Early childhood learners, preschool to year 2 students and pupils in years 6, 9 and 10 all resumed lessons in person on Monday as part of the staged return to schools.

Year 11 and 12 students have already been back at school for a week, while the remaining school students will return on November 1.

It came as the ACT recorded another day of low COVID-19 cases on Monday, amid concern about low testing numbers.

There were nine new infections reported in Canberra on Monday, the second straight day of single-digit case numbers.

However, testing numbers in the territory have continued to fall, with just 647 new tests conducted on Sunday.

The number of new cases is the lowest number of daily infections in a month.

There are now 332 active cases of COVID-19 in Canberra, with the total number of cases in the outbreak now standing at 1595.

Health figures have shown there are 20 patients in hospital with COVID-19, while 10 are in intensive care and five of them are on ventilators.

So far, 88 per cent of those aged over 12 in the ACT are fully vaccinated.
