Keeping Safe

In line with the ACT Government requirements, everyone on the ANU Acton campus must wear masks when indoors with people they don't usually live or work with, or on public transport. 

All of our buildings have hand sanitiser available at the entry/exit points. Please use these to maintain hygienic conditions.

Part of being COVID-safe is checking in with the Check in CBR app at all times, and this is more important than ever at this time. Remember – it is mandatory for anyone older than 16 to check in with the Check In CBR app in the ACT.

More information about using the Check In CBR app on the ANU campus can be found on the ANU COVID-19 advice website.
