If you have a fever, chills or sweats, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, or loss or change in sense of taste or smell, however mild, please do not come to campus.
If you have tested positive to COVID we ask that you please stay away from campus for seven days from onset of symptoms or until symptoms have cleared.

- Vaccination requirement update: Following the decision in October 2022 that coursework students, residents in University accommodation and online Higher Degree by Research candidates were no longer covered by the COVID-19 Safety Procedure, that decision has been extended to all University staff, on-campus Higher Degree by Research candidates, consultants, contractors and volunteers. That means that the University no longer has a vaccination requirement for any members of our community.
- Students undertaking Professional Experience Placements (PEP) will still need to comply with the vaccination requirements of the workplaces they are entering.
- Mask requirements: While our mask setting is currently green, which means mask wearing is an individual choice, it is strongly recommended that masks be worn in indoor settings, particularly where physical distancing cannot be maintained.
- Note that mask wearing remains mandatory in some College of Health and Medicine settings.
- Potential COVID-19 exposure sites: We will be regularly publishing a list of potential COVID-19 exposure sites at the University of Tasmania. These are times and locations where we know that someone who was COVID-19 positive was on campus.
- Positive case reporting: If you've tested positive for COVID-19 we ask that you complete this online form. It will support our management of COVID-19 and, as a result, the health and safety of our community.
- Border restrictions: Tasmania’s borders have reopened. Visit coronavirus.tas.gov.au for more information and the latest Public Health advice.
