Public Health Measures at Curtin
State Government Level 2 public health measures apply in WA from Thursday, 3 March, 2022.
These measures include a 2 square metre rule and 150 person capacity limit indoors for higher education facilities.
As a result, there may be adjustments to your class scheduling. Some class venues may change and classes of greater than 150 students will be required to move online.
You will be notified by Curtin if this will impact your current schedule. Please check your student email and OASIS.
Curtin has an onsite, drive-through testing clinic that is available to staff, students and members of the community. It is open Monday to Friday from 8am to 4pm. The clinic is located at Carpark PJ2, Townsing Drive
The state government has a free RAT program at various locations. Find information and register here.
Free RATS for close contacts
If you are a close contact with no symptoms you can collect free RATs at a range of locations . You will need to wear a mask when collecting your free RATs (in line with close contact protocols) and, take your daily RAT before collection. You’ll be required to verbally confirm that you are a close contact and will be able to collect RATs for other close contacts within your household, to a maximum of 30 RATs.
More information and collection locations can be found here.
Curtin University Vaccination Mandate
Curtin University has decided to revoke its COVID-19 Vaccination Policy and COVID-19 Vaccination Procedures.
This means that in Western Australia, Curtin will no longer require people to provide evidence of their vaccination status to work, attend campus, or participate in Curtin activities, unless required by the State Government (for example, for people working in healthcare settings).
Curtin strongly encourages all of its community members to remain up to date with vaccinations, including boosters as they become available.
Winter boosters are now available to certain cohorts, including anyone aged 30 and over. Curtin Health Service is offering the winter booster to all eligible students and staff that hold a current Medicare card. Bookings can be made by calling 9266 7345 or through the website.
Curtin encourages students and staff to wear masks, particularly in situations when physical distancing is not practical.
Some areas of Curtin may be assessed at a local level as higher risk. Masks may be required as an additional safety measure in those areas.
Curtin will continue to implement its other control measures for the foreseeable future, including its ventilation settings, high frequency cleaning and hygiene and distancing protocols
