COVID Safety Plan

EAGxAustralia 2022

 


 

This protocol may be updated to reflect the latest government and local state policies.

We considered the venue rules, Australian and World Health Organization’s guidelines when drafting this protocol. We also used these resources to draft questions for our COVID Advisory Board.

COVID events policies have been in flux, so please check back. It is possible that our guidance may change between now and the event. Please check back regularly and consider whether travel insurance or other contingencies might be useful to your planning.

Vaccination

We require all attendees to be fully vaccinated, including a booster shot, if you are eligible for one.

In ACT, Australia you are considered fully vaccinated if you have had:

  • 2 doses of a COVID-19 vaccination where two doses are the complete course, or
  • 1 dose of a COVID-19 vaccination where a single dose is the complete course, or
  • a medical exception

 

Vaccination Evidence:
You must carry vaccination evidence and produce this evidence if requested to do so. There are different ways you can show proof of your COVID-19 vaccinations including:

Please find further information from Services Australia if you have any concerns.

Onsite Protocols 

The COVID Health and Safety Rules set out by the Australian National University and ACT Health must be observed while onsite at the EAGxAustralia 2022.

Key Principles:

  1. The health and safety of all members of the ANU community, including event attendees, is paramount and every measure must be made to ensure the risk of contracting COVID-19 is minimised as far as reasonably practical

  2. Attendees must comply with directions and guidelines as indicated by the University

  3. Every attendee has a responsibility to be COVID-safe at all times. This means everyone must:

  4. Maintain good hygiene by frequent washing or sanitising of hands, sneezing and coughing into elbows, and cleaning up your immediate area after use.

    1. Keep their distance from others where possible, particularly when indoors, and avoid crowded spaces

    2. Stay home (or in your room) if you develop any COVID-19 like symptoms, self-isolate, get tested for COVID-19.

    3. Check in for contact tracing

      1. Contribute to contact tracing requirements by downloading the Check in CBR5 application (or jurisdictional equivalent) and check in using the QR code.

      2. Alternate means of tracking are also permissible.

      3. Individuals should also download and register on the Federal Government COVIDSafe

    4. Monitor the situation – keep up to date with the local Government health advice and the Campus Alert System risk level.

  5. Individuals most at risk of complications of COVID-19 are subject to these guidelines but are not excluded from campus

  6. Indoor environments will be well ventilated to reduce the risk of aerosol transmission of COVID-19.

  7. Individuals who are a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19, or who have been identified as a close contact of someone with COVID-19 must isolate, follow medical advice and notify the COVID Response Office.

  8. The University COVID Response Office will be the primary liaison point with ACT Health, including in relation to contact tracing and outbreak management.
