The family where the child was sent back to school are fighting back at the claims. If the media source is correct he was tested on October 10 and did not receive results.
"On October 10 a nurse visited the home to test the boy, with the family saying they never received the results from the boy's test, even after informing DHHS they were still waiting on the results.
Health authorities claimed the family was in quarantine at the time were “expressly told not to” send the boy to school.
But the family has now hit back at these claims, showing The Age an email sent from the DHHS on October 17 informing them they were free to leave isolation"
I’m not sure I buy this family’s story at all....not that it matters anymore as they’ve surrounded them, but they are yo-yoing massively on their narrative. Feels like they are just looking to excuse their mistake now.
There was just an interview on ABC radio that carefully explained as best they could what happened and it just seems they either wilfully or mistakenly did what they did....
Regardless and again, learnings have been taken to make it ‘even more clearer’ for people to understand.... (I read it more as less chance for people to make/choose their own mistakes!). NSW are also picking up these case management learnings which is great to see these things are now actively being shared.
