Two schools on the New South Wales south coast have closed after students tested positive for COVID-19.

Batemans Bay High School and Batemans Bay Public School will both be shut for cleaning on Tuesday after one student at each school tested positive for the virus.

All staff and students from both schools have been told to self-isolate while authorities notify close contacts of the patients. 

'The school will be non-operational tomorrow for the on-site attendance of staff and students to allow time for the school to complete the contact tracing process and have the school cleaned,' a Batemans Bay High School statement said.
