COVID Safe Campus Alert System

Our current level of our COVID Safe Campus Alert System is "low" with no or low community transmissions in the ACT.

Our Alert System is in place to clarify ANU control practices to be activated at as the COVID-19 situation changes in Australia and the ACT.

Any movement within these stages will be determined by community transmission in the ACT or the risk of community transmission on campus. You will be alerted immediately via the ANUOK app when there is a change in our level.

Please take some time to familiarise yourself with the requirements of each level below and note that until we are entirely COVID-free as a society, the now-customary restrictions are in place. We won't return to 'normal' until COVID has been eliminated.

We have guidelines in place to maintain a COVID Safe campus. These guidelines must be followed whilst on campus.
