We strive to keep our campuses a safe place for all our students and staff and we are concerned with the recent reports of the outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus in Wuhan Province in China and the first cases detected in Australia.

 

The Australian government has established processes and practices in place to ensure the safety of Australians and travellers entering Australia. However, considering the evolving situation and in the interests of maintaining the health of our staff and students we ask that the following steps are taken by all.

 

If you have visited China (including Hong Kong) over the recent holidays or been in close contact with a person who has:

  1. Do not return to work or school until you have been in Australia for 14 days from the date of departure from China, even though you may not show any symptoms

  2. Visit a doctor (medical health professional) if you have symptoms of the virus

  3. If you are on a Student Visa, your attendance will NOT be affected upon proof of travel from affected areas

  4. Anyone suspected of any of the symptoms is required to obtain a medical certificate/clearance before coming back to work or study. 

 

Contacts:

  • Phone: Please contact the relevant campus managers and administrators in your State.

  • Web/online:

Students: Online enquiry form here

Please visit www.health.gov.au/health-topics/novel-coronavirus for details regarding the disease and immediately visit a doctor if you have any symptoms or concerns with your health.

 

We will continue to monitor this situation closely and respond to recommendations from the State and Commonwealth governments. Thank you for your cooperation.
