17 June 2021 COVID Update

From 11:59pm on Thursday 17 June 2021, current restrictions for metropolitan Melbourne will alter. The five essential reasons to leave home have been lifted and the 25km travel limit has been removed.

Private homes can have two visitors per day (plus dependents) and outdoor gatherings of up to 20 people are allowed. Masks remain mandatory indoors but are not longer required outdoors unless you cannot maintain 1.5 metres distance.

Eligibility to Attend Campus

No students should attend campus unless they have been invited and are well and present no risk to others. Students with underlying health conditions or in high risk categories that would make them vulnerable should not attend campus. However, if you are in a high risk category and need to attend campus for a practical or assessment, which cannot be completed remotely, please contact your Course Coordinator or email

Please ensure you have completed the Infection Control Training before returning to campus.

Compulsory QR codes

Checking in via QR codes is mandatory on campus for each building you enter every day. This is a very serious requirement of the government restrictions. 

You must scan in everywhere you go regardless of time spent. Teachers will check that students have scanned the QR codes.

Face Coverings

It is mandatory for masks to be worn indoors. Teachers do not need to wear a mask in the classroom while teaching unless they cannot maintain 1.5 metres distance.

If you have an exemption for wearing a face mask, you must contact to receive an exemption lanyard.


The cafés at Elgar, Nelson and Lilydale are open.


The libraries in the city, at Elgar, Nelson and in Lilydale are open from 8.30am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday.

QR Codes

Checking in via QR codes is mandatory. This means you must scan the QR code at every shop, café, building or location you visit – regardless of the amount of time you spend there.
