Following government advice and with input from our infectious disease experts, the University has updated our approach to managing COVID-19 and other illnesses.

All staff, students and visitors are still required to follow our health and safety advice, including practising good personal hygiene with regular hand hygiene, and staying home if you are unwell and to not return to campus unless fully recovered or as advised by your health professional. 

Health and safety precautions are also still in effect on campus, including the availability of disposable masks, rapid antigen tests, sanitiser, and disinfectant wipes for self-use surface cleaning. Regular cleaning services and room ventilation will continue as normal.

Positive cases are no longer required to be reported to the COVID Taskforce, consistent with the approach of the NSW Government.
