Life at Orange – face masks

Covid 19

As we gear up for the start of Term 2, here’s a quick update on face mask guidelines in the Covid-19 Orange setting: 

Although mask wearing is no longer compulsory in most places on campus, our very strong public health advice is that all our staff and students are strongly encouraged to wear one wherever physical distancing is not possible. This includes in teaching and research settings, and in our libraries.

Masks are required to be worn at our campus retail outlets.

Masks have been clearly shown to reduce the spread of the virus and COVID-19 is still prevalent in our communities. Mask wearing is a simple way for us all to support those who are particularly vulnerable to the virus.

Masks are available in lecture theatres and other student spaces on campus.

Masks can be disposed of in the dark green bins that have mask disposal signage on them around campus.

Did you know that UCGO will send you an alert if there is an emergency that affects campus?

If there is a campus-wide emergency situation, such as an evacuation or lockdown, UCGO will send a push notification to your phone so that you know what’s going on. To receive this kind of information, you need to make sure you allow push notifications for UCGO. 

We’re about to ‘Fall back’, why don’t you take a moment to check that you have allowed notifications? Make sure you keep them turned on!

Don’t worry, you won’t get spammed – push notifications from UCGO are only used in an emergency situation. 

FYI – there will be a UCGO emergency test in the morning on Thursday 31 March.
