COVID-19 Update: 16 August

News story

Current restrictions in WA

The State Government recently removed all capacity limits for venues and events, and consequently all venues on our WA campuses have returned to full capacity for second semester.

Some COVID-related controls remain in place in WA including:

  • A requirement to check in to venues using the SafeWA app or printed registers
  • Restrictions on entering WA from other states
  • Access to remote Aboriginal communities.

More information is available on the State Government’s COVID-19 website.

SafeWA and contact registers

At Curtin, we need to keep using the SafeWA app (or manual registration) to check in at all campus venues where a QR code is displayed, including leased spaces and other third-party venues.  The University also uses alternative data sources to identify the location of staff and students on our campuses.

Contact registers and alternative data sources are essential in assisting contact tracers to identify people who may have been exposed to a positive case.

Updating contact details

For contract tracing to be effective, the University needs access to your current mobile contact details.  Please review and, if necessary, update your contact details in eStudent via OASIS.

Updating your contact details will also ensure you receive any emergency text alerts (Curtin Alerts) issued by the University.

Vaccinations available at Curtin Medical Service

The Curtin Medical Service on the Perth campus has both Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccinations available for eligible staff and students.  You can book online or by calling 08 9266 7345.
