Statement from Professor Michelle Campbell, Executive Dean, Faculty of Health Sciences

A small number of ACU health sciences staff and students have been given permission to travel between their Melbourne metropolitan area residences and the university’s Ballarat Campus in order to complete their studies.

This action is in line with all current public health orders, which allow people to travel for work or study that cannot be carried out at home.

It is vital that these health sciences students continue their education. Now, more than ever, critical health workers need to complete their training in order to graduate and join the workforce, and the fight against COVID-19.

And as the largest provider of graduate nurses in Australia, ACU plays a central role in this endeavour.

All staff and students are adhering to strict COVIDSafe practices, including wearing masks when physical distancing of 1.5m cannot be observed.
