Based on public health advice and the University of Melbourne’s implementation of social distancing measures, UMSU continues to host a number of our events online.
For the in-person events, happening on campus, we continue to undertake government-recommended measures for all of our in-person events. If you’re coming to campus, make sure you carefully read the UniMelb guidelines so you know your responsibilities to help us keep our campuses safe for everyone. Don’t come to campus if you are unwell. Find out more about coming to campus on the unimelb coming to campus page. Make sure you complete the online health declaration before coming as we may need proof of completion to enter UMSU events and spaces.
AS OF 6:00PM ON 25 MAY 2021, new government restrictions in Metropolitan Melbourne will go into place until at least 4 JUNE 2021. These MUST be recognised as part of your prospective attendance on campus, or for any UMSU events:
- Prospective attendees must isolate and get tested if symptomatic or have attended any exposure sites listed on the Victorian Government website
- Exposure sites details are updated regularly and attendees should check during the event, and notify UMSU immediately if they are required to take any action.
- Reminders that masks are recommended when physical distancing is difficult to achieve.
- Students should not attend an UMSU event if they are unwell.
- Reminders for all attendees to sign-in to events.
- Reminders for attendees of the appropriate procedures to follow should they become unwell or experience symptoms during the event.
We also understand that this is a difficult and stressful time for everyone and we encourage you to check in on each other, help each other out where possible, and to continue to monitor and comply with public health advice. Additional information is available on the Victorian Government Department of Health and Human Services and Australian Government Department of Health websites.
We urge everyone to continue to follow the advice of government health authorities with regard to maintaining good hygiene practices. Additional information is available on the Victorian Government Department of Health and Human Services and Australian Government Department of Health websites.
