Face Masks Mandatory When Attending College
Face masks must be carried at all times and worn indoors and outdoors whenever you leave your home unless an exception applies..
Check-in At Reception
Students and visitors attending college for more than 15 minutes must check-in by scanning the QR code at reception with their smartphone.
Alternatively, students can also write their name and phone number in the register book located at reception.
This information will be used for the purposes of contract tracing should it be required.
Practice Social Distancing
Practice social distancing where possible. Keep a minimum of 1.5 metres away from other students and staff.
Please avoid contact with others by giving a wave rather than hugging or high-fiving friends before, during, and after classes.
Wash Your Hands Regularly
Wash your hands regularly with soap and water or use the hand sanitizer provided. Wash hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds and dry with a disposable paper towel or hand dryer. Wash your hands before and after eating or after touching common surfaces. Avoid touching your face.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we do our best to circumnavigate these difficult times.
