It's more important than ever that we keep control of COVID. To do so, we need to continue doing the simple things that keep us safe — reducing the risk of catching and spreading the virus in the community.

Step up and stay safe, SA:

  • Get tested and stay home if unwell
  • Wear a mask where required
  • Always check-in
  • Practice good hand hygiene
  • Physical distance.

If you are unwell, please seek medical advice and do not attend any of the University campuses unless medically cleared to do so.

If you have COVID-19 symptoms (as outlined on the SA Health COVID-19 testing page) please get tested and self-isolate until you receive notification that you do not have COVID-19.

The University's response to the COVID-19 global pandemic is being shaped by the latest advice from Australian health and foreign affairs authorities. For further information please visit the COVID-19 updates page.
