**UPDATE: 5 August 2020**
With Victoria being declared a State of Disaster, Deakin campuses must continue to review and adjust our plans for on-campus activity based on evolving government advice and current restrictions. This advice will be effective immediately, adapting to the new Stage 4 restrictions in Melbourne and Stage 3 restrictions in regional Victoria.
