How will I find out if my placement is affected?

In an effort to contain the spread of COVID-19, public health directions have been swiftly issued by the Chief Health Officer of Queensland.  WIL placements have been, and will continue to be, impacted by these COVID-19 restrictions.

In the event of a change in public health directions, school staff will confirm with providers if or how placements will be impacted and school staff will proceed to communicate these impacts directly to affected students.

What are my responsibilities?

  • Do not attend your placement if you are unwell/experiencing COVID-19 related symptoms
  • Follow all QLD government health advice
  • If you (or anyone in your household) are tested for COVID-19 stay at home until you/they receive the test results
  • Follow advice from your placement provider regarding their workplace social distancing and PPE requirements
  • Ensure your Placement Supervisor and UQ Placement Coordinator/CELM/Course Staff are aware of your inability to attend placement, due to sickness or testing requirements, as soon as possible.

Please be assured that your safety and wellbeing is our number one priority. If you have any questions or concerns be sure to contact your Placement Coordinator and/or Student Services .
