COVID-19 Update

Information Last Updated 11 January 2021 @ 23:40pm

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. 

QLD

Queensland’s Premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk announced this morning that the three-day lockdown in Greater Brisbane would end as planned at 6pm tonight. However, there are eased restrictions that will apply until 1:00am on Friday, 22 January 2021. This includes the mandatory use of face masks at all times when you leave home, and when in indoor spaces, except in your home. For more information visit: Qld Government Easing of Greater Brisbane restrictions.
 

NSW

A number of areas have been identified as areas with increased testing. 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.

TAS

The Queensland Local Government Areas of Brisbane, Moreton Bay, Ipswich, Redlands and Logan will remain classified as high-risk areas at this stage. The risk level will be reviewed by Public Health Services on Wednesday 13 January 2021.

Travellers who arrived in Tasmania after 9am Friday 8 January and were instructed to quarantine are required to remain in quarantine until further notice. More advice will be provided following a risk assessment on Wednesday. If you arrived in Tasmania prior to 9am on Friday 8 January and have been self-isolating, you are now able to end your self-isolation. This is because of a reduced risk of chance of exposure to possible contacts due to time period since last in identified local government areas.

All travellers are asked to continue to check the contact tracing alerts every day in case further contact tracing locations are identified. If you were at any of these identified premises, please contact the Public Health Hotline 1800 671 738 to arrange a test.

New measures for return to Australia

09 JAN 2021

Following today’s decision by National Cabinet and announcement from the Prime Minister, if you are travelling to Australia you must provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 test prior to boarding your flight at the departure point.

Anyone who has a negative test result and enters Australia, must still complete mandatory 14-day quarantine at designated facilities in your port of arrival.

Masks are now mandatory for all international and domestic flights, including within airports. Read the Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC) statement on safe air travel – enhancing end-to-end mitigations – international.

International arrival caps will be reduced until 15 February 2021. This could affect your flight into Australia. If you’re scheduled to fly home to Australia in the coming weeks, confirm your itinerary and travel plans with your airline or travel agent.

Further details, including the start date for these measures will be announced shortly. These details will be available on  Australia.gov.au and the Department of Health.

Travellers to Australia should contact their airline regarding any current requirements relating to COVID-19 testing.

Official Announcement

Dear Students and Staff,

The COVID-19 situation in Australia has escalated to a level that requires all staff and students to pay extra attention to the pandemic. The total number of COVID-19 cases in Australia has surpassed 5,000 active cases1. The pandemic is spreading and has accelerated in all states across Australia2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9. The college’s staff and students should remain calm and alert but not alarmed. All students and staff should keep themselves current with the latest and most up to date COVID-19 developments and strictly follow advice from both federal and local governments.

Plan:
In order to ensure everyone’s safety, the college will still continue with the Escalation Stage Plan to minimise and prevent the spread of COVID-19 in accordance with Coronavirus (COVID-19) Plan and Procedures10. We are in a situation where the prevention of the COVID-19 can save peoples’ lives.

Students will be contacted by their respective schools for the class timetables and their special arrangements.

Staff
Staff who are not required to be physically present at the college’s campuses will be requested to work from home. Staff can contact their direct supervisors/managers for work-at-home arrangements if required.

The college will provide everyone updates of future developments. In the meantime, we would like you to regularly check our AIBTGlobal Coronavirus Update (COVID-19) web page at https://aibtglobal.edu.au/coronavirus/ for more information.

We ask all students to continue to follow good health and hygiene practices to reduce the risk of contracting and spreading COVID-19 and keep up to date with the latest information from the Department of Health website at https://www.health.gov.au/.
