Stage 3 restrictions apply to all of Queensland, however there are some additional requirements in place for campuses in South East Queensland.
SOUTH EAST QUEENSLAND
Mask wearing: see mask wearing advice above.
Vocational placement (at clinical or care facilities): The Queensland Government has issued new information. Within restricted areas students may attend clinical placements in facilities if they are fully vaccinated. Visit the Queensland Health website for more information.
Occupant density: Please be mindful of signed maximum room capacities – in office spaces and live services (gyms, cafes, restaurants etc) adhere to a 1 person per 2m2, however classrooms, teaching sessions (including tutorials, practicals and laboratory-based learning) are not subject to capacity limits.
OUTSIDE OF SOUTH EAST QUEENSLAND
Townsville (including Magnetic Island) and Palm Island are no longer considered impacted areas.
Outside of South East Queensland, you are only required to wear a mask in some locations such as airports and domestic flights.
However, if you have been in South East Queensland since 1am AEST 29 June 2021, you must carry a face mask with you at all times and wear your mask per South East Queensland restrictions, unless 14 days have passed since you were last in the area.
Queensland Health currently advises that anyone in Queensland should keep a mask with them so that in situation where physical distancing is not possible, you have some added protection.
From 1am Friday 9 July, the Check In Qld app is mandatory for businesses across a range of sectors, including TAFE Queensland.
The Check In Qld app is a safe, secure and convenient way to support the Queensland Government’s contact tracing efforts.
Students, staff, contractors, and visitors must check-in at TAFE Queensland. The easiest way to check-in is to use the Check In Qld app and scan the QR code on arrival before starting class or work each day. QR codes are conveniently located at venue entry points.
Some blocks, venues and on-campus services (such as restaurants, gyms, live salons, cafes and auditoriums) on our campuses have their own unique QR codes which you or our students will be required to scan before entering.
Your details will be stored securely by the Queensland Government for contact tracing only (if required). TAFE Queensland will not have access to this information, nor will any third parties.
Please click on the video above to view our check in instructions.
If you are having trouble with check-in using your phone's camera, you can enter the 6-digit code located on the QR code poster.
Under the current Queensland Health COVID-19 directive, some of our facilities, for example the auditoriums in our Brisbane campuses, are required to have allocated seating. Please follow the venue instructions at all locations for seating.
While you are required to check-in for contact tracing purposes, you don’t need to do this using the app. For students and employees who don’t have a smartphone or aren’t comfortable downloading apps, we can take your details using another method. Please speak with your teacher or a staff member at your location, or ask a friend to add you to their check-in.
One of our employees or an employee of an on-campus service may ask to see confirmation of your check-in. If asked, you are required to show evidence of check-in. If you used the app, simply present your check-in confirmation screen. If you didn’t use the app, you should present a copy of the manual check-in confirmation or from your friend’s.
Further detail of the businesses and activities that are now required to use the Check In Qld app is included in Queensland Health’s Restrictions on Business, Activities and Undertakings Direction.
Recording your check-in information when you attend a TAFE Queensland campus, or access a unique on-campus facility or service is the most important information to enable the Queensland Government’s contact tracers to focus on their investigation. Recording a check-out time is not a requirement.
For information and updates on Australia's immigration and border arrangements during the COVID-19 outbreak please visit the Australian Department of Home Affairs.
If you have been in close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19, you are requested to self-isolate for 14 days following the last exposure.
If you complete your full 14-day isolation follow the advice of Queensland Health.
If you are a student and you took self-isolation precautions please contact us on 1300 308 233 to discuss returning to class.
Safety and wellbeing is TAFE Queensland’s top priority and we will continue to follow the advice provided by Queensland Health, who is leading the State Government’s response to COVID-19.
