Lockdown continues in Melbourne metropolitan areas – and now also in the City of Ballarat local government area until Thursday 23 September, pending government advice.
Ballarat and Berwick campuses are closed until Thursday 23 September, pending government advice, aside from limited authorised activity for staff and students with an approved work or study permit. Those staff and students approved to be on campus will be contacted directly.
Our campuses in Gippsland and the Wimmera are open, but with significant restrictions still in place. Limited practical activities can occur on campus for higher education, TAFE and HDR students (staff and students will be contacted directly if applicable to them) and 25 per cent of office staff can return to campus (to be managed by Deans and Directors).
Brisbane Campus remains open and is unaffected by the Victorian restrictions.
