Vice-Chancellor and Principal Professor Mark Scott wrote to staff and students today, to advise our remote delivery of Semester 2 teaching will be extended for an additional four weeks until at least mid-semester break – 27 September.
Support for our students and staff was also highlighted, including additional financial support for HDR students and a research support fund.
Positive case in Chemistry and Madsen buildings
We received confirmation yesterday that a staff member in our School of Chemistry has tested positive for COVID-19.
Access to some spaces in our Chemistry and Madsen (Geosciences) buildings are being restricted and deep cleaning is underway.
We have advised our community to immediately get tested, self-isolate, and wait for further instructions from NSW Health if they visited those buildings (Chemistry Building 19 and 20 July, Madsen Building 20 July).
