How to know if you are a household contact:
- You have been informed by someone that you are their household contact.
- You have spent more than four hours with someone who has COVID-19 inside a house, accommodation or care facility.
You are not a household contact if:
- You are currently a COVID-19 case in isolation, or
- You recently recovered from COVID-19, and your isolation period ended less than 4 weeks ago.
What to do if you are a household contact:
Follow the Victorian Government checklist for Household Contacts, including getting tested.
Discuss with your teacher/lecturer/course coordinator/program manager about whether you can complete your study at home.
If you are a household contact and need to come to campus:
- You must test negative to COVID-19 before coming to campus
- You must wear a mask and avoid unnecessary interactions
- You must follow the Victorian Government requirements to be exempt from quarantine (including testing on 5 out of 7 days).
If you test positive:
- Follow the Victorian Government checklist for COVID-19 cases.
- If you test positive on a rapid antigen test (RAT), notify the Victorian Government of your result.
- Please let RMIT know as soon as possible by using the positive case form.
You can access one free RAT per day from RMIT’s limited supply, from Student Connect points on each campus.
You can also collect free RATs from a COVID-19 testing site or purchase them at most pharmacies, supermarkets and online.
