Be COVID-safe

Our UC community is reminded that it is absolutely imperative that everyone:

  • follows ACT Government health advice and
  • provides honest responses to University procedures relating to declaration of travel and health symptoms.

Failure to do so not only puts our entire UC community at risk, it may also result in penalties and fines under the ACT Health’s Public Health Directions and/or sanctions under the University’s Student Conduct Rules.

Please wear your face mask, observe physical distancing, hand and respiratory hygiene, stay at home if you are unwell, and get tested if you have symptoms.

What to do

Thank you for doing your part in keeping our campus and community safe by following these basic guidelines:

  • Follow ACT Government health advice.
  • Check in using the Check In CBR App.
  • Wear your face mask.
  • Maintain a safe physical distance of 1.5m from others.
  • Practise good hand hygiene.
  • Sneeze or cough into your elbow or tissue.
  • Wipe down any shared workspaces and equipment when you enter and leave a venue.
  • If you are presenting with viral symptoms, get tested and isolate until you receive a negative result. If you are uncertain about your symptoms, please consult your doctor.

Call the ACT Health COVID-19 hotline on (02) 6207 7244 between 8am and 8pm daily, if you are seeking advice relating to stay-at-home orders, testing, and vaccinations, or if you have been in an identified exposure location.

Check-In CBR App

Checking in using the Check In CBR app is now mandatory at all shops, supermarkets, other retail settings, public transport and taxi, hire car and ride share services across the ACT. This is in addition to the existing restricted businesses, venues and events where we have become familiar with checking in.

Suspected or confirmed case procedure

The University procedure for a COVID-19 case that is under assessment and has met the criteria for testing, or that has been confirmed is available in the Suspected or Confirmed Case procedure.The procedure applies to all UC staff, students, those living in UC student residences, and community members on campus.
