Last update 2 May 2022
Flinders University continues to closely monitor the national COVID-19 trajectory to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our community in SA, the NT and elsewhere.
Latest information about COVID-19 for South Australia can be found on the SA Health website.
If you’re at one of our Northern Territory locations please check advice from NT Health.
The latest advice for each State and Territory is available at the following links: New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, WA, Tasmania and the ACT .
Wherever you are, it’s important to maintain safe physical distances, practice thorough hygiene, and if unwell stay at home, arrange to have a COVID test and self-isolate until you receive a negative result.
If you are deemed a close contact of a positive case, please isolate and get tested as advised by your local health department. Close contact requirements for SA and NT are available on their respective websites: SA Health, NT Health.
Close contact reporting
Staff who have been in close contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case should speak to their supervisor, and where possible use online alternatives to reduce contact with others.
However, if close contacts need to attend our campuses, they can continue to do so provided they have no symptoms, a mask is worn, regular RATs are conducted, and the University is notified.
To ease the reporting process for close contacts an online form is available here. Simply fill out the declaration and submit. It’s also suggested College or divisional supervisors are kept informed. Should you go on to test positive, please stay home and advise your supervisor and WHS via email@example.com.
