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.
- RESTRICTION LEVELS: To guide USC’s safe and efficient response to the Queensland Government’s COVID-19 public health directives, campus operations will be categorised in to four levels of varied restrictions.
