Personal protective equipment may be made available for teachers who teach vulnerable children.
The state government has begun discussions about access to PPE, which has not been made available to teachers thus far.
Education Minister Jeremy Rockliff said on Thursday that discussions had been had regarding the use of PPE and allocation for teachers but nothing had been set in stone. However, he said the current Public Health advice regarding the use of PPE in schools had not changed.

"The use of PPE is not required to provide regular care for children and young people that are well," he said.
"PPE can be used for students requiring more complex personal support, particularly in support schools."
Mr Rockliff said when students return to learning environments for term 2 next week, those who need to return physically to school were being looked after with social distancing in place.
"Social distancing is in place where applicable but schools are also doing other things such as teaching in larger classrooms or using larger outdoor areas and staggering collection times for print learning packs."

"First aid officers must continue to adhere to first aid procedures and pay special attention to maintaining personal respiratory and hand hygiene, including the use of gloves as applicable."
In Tasmania, the advice remains and will remain for the entirety of term 2, if there is a parent at home who can supervise, then children should remain home.
Those who can't supervise, who are essential workers, may send their child to school to continue learning.
A shortage of PPE for healthcare workers has also been well documented and while Tasmania has tripled its supply of PPE there is still not enough to go around other healthcare workers such as dentists, anaesthetists and nurses.
