ACU staff, students and visitors on campus are required to wear a facemask in settings where this is mandated by state or territory requirements, and/or where specified by ACU.
You should always carry a face mask and be prepared to wear it as appropriate and needed (see also additional information about masks). ACU recommends face masks in indoor settings, such as lifts, where physical distancing cannot always be maintained.
Local WHS risk assessments inform the mandating and provision of masks by the University and the use of surgical/N95/P2 masks during times when staff and students participate in those work and learning activities that do not support physical distancing.
Hand sanitiser stations have been installed across each campus. Hand soap and paper towels are available in toilets and kitchens. Regular cleaning regimes across the campus includes workspaces, learning environments and amenities.
Proactive cleaning continues, including of high contact surfaces, to prevent COVID-19 and disease transmission. Whenever a person has been infectious on campus within 48 hours or less, cleaning is actioned. Wipes are provided to staff within teaching spaces and meeting rooms to wipe down touch screens and equipment in practical learning spaces.
