NSW Health - rules for people who are fully vaccinated

New rules are now in place for fully vaccinated people in NSW. 

You are fully vaccinated if you have had 2 doses of a COVID-19 vaccination or you have a medical exemption

You will find the new rules on the NSW Health website here.

If you are not fully vaccinated you should follow the rules outlined here

Full details on restrictions and exceptions are on the NSW Health website

What do the new rules mean for students and staff at UNSW Sydney - can I come back to campus?

With COVID-19 restrictions starting to ease, we are returning to campus in a cautious and phased way.

All courses and assessable tasks including labs, practical and studio classes will continue online until the end of Term 3 2021.

Staff and HDR students who wish to return to campus to work can do so if they are fully vaccinated and have permission from their Dean or Divisional Head. 

Students who are fully vaccinated are also able to return to campus to use campus facilities that are open and to participate in any Faculty organised activities. 

Further details can be found on our Return to Campus Roadmap and our Frequently Asked Questions pages. 

Where can I find more information on how the COVID-19 situation impacts my work/study at UNSW?
