Information Last Updated 06 May 2021 @ 5:21pm
As part of AIBT’s commitment to our student’s and staff’s health and safety, we are monitoring the COVID-19 situation very closely and following all the relevant advice from government agencies and global organisations.
Queensland has current contact tracing alerts and related public health advice for people who have been in:
- The Brisbane Airport – International terminal, Queensland on 29 April 2021
- The Greater Sydney region of New South Wales on or since 30 April 2021
- The Melbourne Airport, Victoria on 21 April 2021
- The Perth and Peel regions of Western Australia on or since 17 April 2021
- New Zealand on or since 17 April 2021
Anyone who has been to an interstate exposure site must complete 14 days quarantine, even if you receive a negative test since you were at the location. It can take 14 days before you develop symptoms or test positive to COVID-19.
The following measures will be effective from midday 6 May 2021 (enforceable from 5pm) until 12:01am Monday, 10 May for the Greater Sydney region (including Wollongong, Central Coast and Blue Mountains):
- Visitors to households will be limited to 20 guests – including children
- Masks will be compulsory on public transport and in all public indoor venues, such as retail, theatres, hospitals, aged care facilities and for front-of-house hospitality staff (except in a hospitality venue when eating or drinking)
- Drinking while standing up at indoor venues will not be allowed
- Singing by audiences at indoor shows or by congregants at indoor places of worship will not be allowed
- Dancing will not be allowed at indoor hospitality venues or nightclubs however, dancing is allowed at weddings with a strong recommendation that no more than 20 people should be on the dancefloor at any one time
- Visitors to aged care facilities will be limited to two people.
It is also strongly recommended the community avoids mingling in large groups over the coming days, and is careful not to put our most vulnerable at risk.
There are currently no areas with increased testing, though confirmed COVID-19 cases are associated with a number of locations and have been classified by NSW Health for action. Refer to Latest COVID-19 case locations and alerts in NSW.
It is important for the ongoing control of COVID-19 in NSW that anyone in the state who has any COVID-19 symptoms, no matter how mild, continues to get tested immediately and self-isolates until a negative test result is received.
Gathering limits apply for household, businesses, events and activities – see Gathering, density and physical distancing for details.
