COVIDSafe plans

  • Face masks

    The University continues to follow Victorian public health orders for face masks. You must carry a face mask at all times and wear one as required under current COVIDSafe Settings.

    The Victorian Department of Health strongly recommends wearing a mask indoors and whenever you cannot physically distance. The University encourages everyone to follow this advice to help reduce the transmission of airborne viruses.

    In addition, the University’s expectation is that, through to the end of winter, students and staff will wear masks when in classroom settings, except where removing a mask is necessary for clear communication or when a particular activity requires the removal of a mask (all existing exemptions continue to apply).

  • Cleaning and sanitising

    The University has implemented enhanced infection control and cleaning measures across all facilities, including:

    • More frequent cleaning and disinfection by professional cleaning staff
    • Self-service infection control measures, such as 2500+ touch-free hand sanitiser dispensers and 3000+ alcohol wipe dispensers
    • Additional deep cleaning, disinfection and site closures as needed in response to a confirmed case of COVID-19
  • Physical distancing
    • People are encouraged wherever possible to maintain a physical distance of 1.5m between themselves and others
    • Indoor spaces have been reconfigured and plexiglass barriers installed in some service areas to facilitate physical distancing
    • Signage and floor decals provide reminders for people to maintain physical distance of 1.5m where possible
    • Wearing a face mask is strongly recommended whenever you cannot maintain a physical distance of 1.5m between yourself and others
  • Ventilation

    The University has reviewed buildings for adequacy of ventilation capacity and introduced a variety of measures to reduce the risk of indoor transmission of COVID-19, including:

    • Increasing ventilation by mechanical or natural means where necessary
    • Where the system is unable to ensure to adequate air intake and exchange, other mitigations, such as portable air purifiers have been deployed
    • Real-time monitoring of carbon dioxide (CO2) levels as a proxy to evaluate airborne virus risk and adequate fresh air supply – monitors have been installed in teaching spaces and some other spaces to actively monitor air quality
    • Encouraging greater use of outdoor spaces
