COVIDSafe settings in Victoria

As we continue to live with COVID-19, there are important steps you should take to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and protect yourself and those who are most at risk.

The risk of catching or passing the infection to others is higher if you are not up to date with your vaccinations, when you are in close contact with the person infected with COVID-19, lack basic hygiene, or if you spend time in poorly ventilated or crowded indoor settings.

There are things we can all do to make ourselves and others safer. As you live and work, remember these COVIDSafe principles:

COVIDSafe settings at Deakin

From 20 June 2022, all students and visitors may attend Deakin University premises irrespective of your vaccination status.

This change will remove all previous obligations on Deakin to restrict and/or limit unvaccinated students and visitors from attending our premises, in alignment with the Government’s further easing of pandemic restrictions on 20 April 2022.

Please note if you are attending student placements in high-risk settings where vaccine mandates remain in place, you will still be subject to the relevant requirements of those industries.

Vaccination continues to actively protect your health

We continue to strongly encourage all eligible Deakin students and staff to stay up to date with your COVID-19 vaccinations, including any recommended booster shots.

Maintaining your vaccination schedule provides you the greatest individual protection against developing severe illness if you contract COVID-19, which in turn reduces the stresses on our health system and our dedicated and hard-working health professionals.
