Exclusion periods - role of primary schools and children's services
In Victoria, primary schools and children's services have certain roles and responsibilities in managing certain infectious diseases in Victoria.
School exclusion table
Exclusion of children with particular infections (known as cases) is the most important way to reduce transmission of infectious disease in these settings. In some limited circumstances, it is important to exclude children who have been exposed to particular infections (known as contacts).
Infections in children's services centres
Some infectious diseases are more common in children’s services, as described in the Victorian Blue Book.
