Mutual obligations for groups visiting the University of Melbourne

The University of Melbourne requires anyone attending our campuses to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in line with the University’s COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements Policy. The University will require those 18 and over to provide proof of vaccination (or valid exemption) either prior to or on arrival at the University.

In line with our obligations to take all reasonable steps to manage and mitigate the risk of COVID-19 transmission on our premises, we require all visiting groups to agree to a mutual notification process should any member of the group who has been on University premises turn COVID-positive.

The organising group lead is required to notify the host area as soon as reasonably possible that a COVID-positive individual has attended a University location, providing the time, date and location that they attended. The host area will then notify the University’s Public Health Network. It is not necessary to provide us with any personal details of the individual.

Likewise, the University commits to providing advice to visiting groups if a COVID-positive individual has been on site during a group visit or activity. The host area will notify the organising group lead as soon as possible to ensure they can take all necessary steps.

The University will also publish information about COVID-19 cases on campus on our website.
