Coming to campus? Complete the COVIDSafe module first and help us all stay safe

**UPDATED 30 July**

With the COVID-19 situation continuing to evolve, the health and wellbeing of the entire Deakin community is our number one priority.

With metropolitan Melbourne and the Mitchell Shire still in Stage 3 stay-at-home restrictions, and all Victorians now required to a wear face-covering or mask when they leave their homes, it is essential you know how to stay safe.

If you live in those areas, we recommend you limit your travel as much as possible, but you’re allowed to leave your home for study if it can’t be done from home. This includes for practicals, laboratory work, fieldwork or placements.

If you need to come on campus for one of these learning experiences or to access one of the limited study spaces, we ask you to complete the COVIDSafe learning module before your first visit in T2/S2.

What the module covers and how to access it

The COVIDSafe learning module will only take 15 minutes to complete. It highlights how you can:

The module is available in the My Learning section of DeakinSync.

What other campus safety precautions are in place

We’re complying with all government and health guidelines, and have implemented a range of measures to keep Deakin COVIDSafe. This includes:

How to keep Deakin COVIDSafe

Remember, if you do need to come on campus for an approved reason, you must observe physical distancing requirements and practise good hygiene to minimise the risk of spreading illness.

If on the day of your learning activity, study or approved appointment you are not feeling well, you have been tested for COVID-19 or have been in contact with a suspected or confirmed case, please do NOT attend.

If you have any flu-like symptoms, you must be tested. The on-campus Deakin Medical Centre is NOT a testing facility. Instead, call the dedicated 24-hour hotline on 1800 675 398 or visit the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services coronavirus website for a list of testing sites and other information.

Where to go for information and support

Thank you for making your commitment to a COVIDSafe Deakin and best of luck for T2/S2!
