Phased Return to Campus Update #10


15 July 2020

In May 2020, Box Hill Institute commenced a phased return to campus for students who require practical training or assessment that can only be completed on campus. Your health and safety on campus is a priority.

Eligibility to Return to Campus

Only students who are invited to campus should attend and only those who are well and present no known risks. Before returning to campus, you need to complete a Student Declaration and Online Infection Control Training.

Students with underlying health conditions or in high-risk categories that would make them vulnerable should not return to campus. These include:

  • people aged 70 years and older
  • people aged 65 years and older with chronic medical conditions
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees aged 50 years and older with one or more chronic medical condition(s)
  • people with compromised immune systems

This is in line with the advice provided by the Department of Health and Human Services - COVID 19 Information. If you are not eligible to return to campus, please contact your teaching area to discuss your learning progress options.

Daily Screening

The Concierge Team is on campus to welcome you and to conduct daily screenings as part of your entry into campus. This includes temperature checks and health screenings. The Concierge Team is comprised of Box Hill Institute staff members who have received training to ensure that your health and safety on campus is a top priority.

Infection Control

Social distancing must be adhered to at all times on campus, in and outside the classroom. If you are found to be in breach of the social distancing requirements, you may be asked to leave campus and return at an advised date.  Once class has finished students are required to leave campus.

In class, students will wipe down shared equipment and touch points and apply hand sanitiser before entering classrooms.
