The University has released information regarding the Brisbane lockdown and upcoming UNE Intensives/placements.
 
In response to the notification of locally acquired cases of COVID-19 in Brisbane, the NSW Government has issued notification of new COVID-19 close contact locations and guidance for travellers from Queensland.
If you have attended a close contact venue in Queensland or NSW, you are required to get tested and self-isolate for 14 days regardless of the result. Staff and students should not attend any University sites during this time.
If you have attended a casual contact site from Queensland, you are required to get tested and self-isolate until a negative result is received.
 
🟢 Trimester 1 Intensive schools are progressing as scheduled. If you are not affected by the restrictions, then please attend your scheduled intensive school.
 
🟢 If you are unable to travel to Armidale for a mandatory intensive school while the self-isolation requirement is in place, please submit an application for a Special Extension of Time: https://okt.to/BPVw6g Once your application is received and assessed, UNE will communicate arrangements for either an alternative to your intensive school or deferred intensive school.
 
🟢 If you are unable to travel for a placement due to the self-isolation restrictions, please contact your UNE placement office to discuss options.
