Express coronavirus (COVID-19) testing results for VCE students

Principals/Directors, VCE Coordinators and VCE Teachers

The Operational guidance for COVID-safe delivery of 2020 VCE written examinations document has been updated with new health advice regarding express coronavirus (COVID-19) testing for VCE students, as well as information relating to secondary contacts. The updated version is now available for download from VASS from the System Admin > Downloads menu.

Action required

Principals/Directors should ensure VCE coordinators and VCE teachers are made aware of this arrangement and advise any student who informs them they have coronavirus (COVID-19)-like symptoms and are being tested.

Critical dates

Tuesday 10 November to Tuesday 1 December – VCE written examinations

Additional information

In order to minimise the impact of having to undertake coronavirus (COVID-19) testing during the VCE external assessment period, all VCE students' coronavirus (COVID-19) tests will be given the highest priority for analysis.

Students should notify their VCE provider prior to being tested and should quarantine until they receive notification of their result.
