28 Nov 2021

For the latest information about COVID-19 restrictions and requirements in Queensland, please visit the Queensland Health website.

Other details about COVID-19 are available at the Australian Department of Health and the World Health Organization.

All FAQs for USC students are available at USC’s dedicated student page.

All FAQs for USC staff, including work from home details, are available via MyUSC.

  • CHECK IN APP: The Queensland Government’s Check In Queensland app is now operating on all USC campuses. Anyone who visits a USC campus should check in with this app on arrival. Doing so will assist contact tracing in the event of a COVID-19 case on campus.
  • COVID EXPOSURE SITES: The Queensland Government has updated its current list of COVID-19 exposure sites across South East Queensland. People who have visited any of the locations at the times listed should self-quarantine and get tested for COVID-19. Those who have visited any of these locations soon after the times listed should get tested for COVID-19 and monitor themselves for symptoms.
  • TESTING SITES: Queensland Health has established additional COVID-19 testing and fever clinics across South East Queensland. The full list of clinics is available on the Queensland Health website.

  • VACCINATION CLINICS: Queensland Health has encouraged anyone eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccination to book an appointment at one of its vaccination locations.

  • FEELING UNWELL?: Students or staff who feel unwell or exhibit flu-like symptoms should not attend campus, and should immediately make an appointment to see their GP. Queensland Health provides up-to-date guidance about the symptoms of COVID-19.

  • COVID-19 REPORTING FORM: Students, staff and visitors to USC who have a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 are asked to complete this confidential form. It is also for those who may have had contact with someone who has a confirmed case of COVID-19 or recently been to a declared COVID-19 hotspot.

  • USC RESPONSE: If Queensland Health identifies that someone from USC has COVID-19, the University will follow Queensland Health’s instructions on what actions need to be taken.
