About exposure sites

Swinburne will work with the Victorian Government’s Department of Health to identify any exposed people of confirmed COVID-19 cases on campus and low-risk exposure locations.

We will do our best to notify exposed people and provide the necessary advice. If you have been identified by Swinburne as a possible exposed person, you must follow the directions provided to you by Swinburne. 

If you have visited a low-risk exposure location on campus during the exposure period, please monitor for symptoms and get tested immediately if you start to develop symptoms.  

If you have any queries, please contact Swinburne’s Health, Safety and Wellbeing team via healthsafetywellbeing@swinburne.edu.au. For more information on getting tested for COVID-19, visit the Department of Health’s website.
