I hope your end of year break has been restful, happy and safe.
We are watching the developing situation in New South Wales closely and have determined to retain our COVID Campus Alert level at low. This is because there is currently no community transmission within the ACT.
However, I know many of our colleagues live, and are holidaying in, New South Wales and will be considering their return to campus shortly.
As per the Vice-Chancellor's message on 4 December 2020, the University expects those who can return to campus to do so, where possible. Before returning to campus however, please ensure you are not required to self-isolate or quarantine as per ACT Health guidelines.
If you have been tested for COVID-19, regardless of whether you've been in a hotspot or not, you must notify your supervisor and firstname.lastname@example.org. You must also notify your supervisor and email@example.com once your test result has been returned.
For those returning to the ACT, we have heard anecdotally that there are long delays at the ACT border check points, so please factor this into your plans.
We have been in direct contact with many commencing and returning students travelling from interstate for Semester 1, 2021 but I know many of you receive enquiries from your own students. It is important students are given consistent and accurate information, so please refer all student enquiries relating to returning to campus to the relevant contact:
Commencing/future students: firstname.lastname@example.org
Residential student enquiry: email@example.com
Current students: Refer them to the ANU website
We look forward to welcoming everyone who is returning to campus.
