Health advice and reporting guidelines

As always, if you are feeling unwell or sick you must stay at home. Do not come to campus. If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, get tested for COVID-19.

If you are studying at Murdoch University and test positive for COVID-19, you should let your unit coordinator know as soon as possible. They will work with you to develop an alternate plan to ensure you are able to complete your studies.

There are a few basic protective measures you can take to protect yourself and others including practicing good hygiene, maintaining physical distance, wearing a mask, getting vaccinated, staying informed and familiarising yourself with our COVID-19 Campus Protocols.

The Murdoch University Medical Service are able to administer COVID-19 vaccinations to non-Medicare card holders, this also extends to International Student Family members 18 years and over. To book an appointment call 9360 2293 or book online.
