Avondale’s response to the coronavirus (COVID-19)

Update (as of August 8, 2022): Face-to-face courses continue this semester and close contact rules remain in place

Avondale University is committed to supporting staff members, students and visitors attending campus through the COVID-19 pandemic. We have a team working to provide up-to-date advice as we respond to changing circumstances.

All face-to-face semester two courses will continue on campus as timetabled, with some additional safety measures.

We have adopted COVID-safe precautions, but this does not eliminate the possibility of a positive case on campus. However, in line with government guidelines and air quality adjustments for rooms, in the event of a positive case on campus, face-to-face teaching is expected to continue. Staff members will endeavour to support students through resources on Moodle if the staff members or student becomes infected and needs to isolate.

To maintain as safe an environment as possible, all staff members, students and visitors attending campus are expected to adhere to our COVID-safe precautions. This includes:

  1. Adhering to the close contact requirements announced by the NSW Government in April
  2. Not attending campus if you have any symptoms
  3. Wearing a mask as recommended by the government when indoors at the university and where physical distancing cannot be maintained, and
  4. Opening windows in rooms to ensure good ventilation.
