Say hello to our Physical Distancing Ambassadors
If you have classes that require you to come to campus this study period, please remember you must be COVIDSafe to attend Deakin.
Once you arrive, you’ll likely notice people in bright yellow T-shirts roaming around campus. They are Deakin’s Physical Distancing Ambassadors, who are responsible for monitoring the campus and ensuring physical distancing and hygiene protocols are properly practised.
Physical Distancing Ambassadors are here to help you
The ambassador program is a collaboration between DUSA and Deakin, and has re-engaged students who have previously worked in similar ambassador roles.
Physical Distancing Ambassadors are on campus to help you by:
- making sure you understand and enact required guidelines on campus, such as adhering to capacity restrictions or physical distancing requirements (especially in high-traffic areas and informal learning spaces)
- locating the closest hand sanitiser stations for your use
- answering any questions you may have about COVID-19-related restrictions at Deakin.
You must respect the instructions of our ambassadors while on campus
All ambassadors will receive appropriate levels of training, including training that will enable them to act as wardens in case of emergency.
They’re equipped with the knowledge to help Deakin manage the return of face-to-face activity on campus, and so it’s important that you respect their position by listening to them and acting on any advice they provide you.
