Message from the COO

As we see the cautious lifting of some government restrictions in the last few days it is inevitable our minds turn again to being more on than off campus and when that might happen. Our experts now have a better understanding of the effective public health management of COVID-19 and we believe the University's comprehensive response measures and your sensible actions have contributed to the outstanding outcomes in the ACT. At the same time, we all have an eye on those countries where initial successes have deteriorated with worrying increases in the rates of infection.
