COVID-19 health declaration: Next steps

Instructions for students and staff who have been declined campus access after the online health declaration

Updated: Friday 25 June 2021, 7:00PM

If you have received an email containing a red cross (X) after your online health declaration, please DO NOT come to campus. This means you have been declined access to campus because you indicated that in the last 14 days you have been to a specific location, experienced a particular symptom or reported direct contact with people who might have been exposed to COVID-19. Before you can come to campus, you will need to follow the directions laid out by the Government and the University.

If you have recently visited any location considered high risk for COVID-19 infection (please see below), or have had direct or indirect contact with someone who has COVID-19, please notify your local authorities, self-isolate at home and arrange a COVID-19 test at one of the following facilities:

Request evidence of a negative test result at your testing centre before returning to campus, as this may be required for reentry.

Students who are required to isolate or quarantine should declare with Student Connect and inform your lecturers as soon as possible to seek academic support with your courses. 

Impacted staff members should declare with hr@rmit.edu.vn and your line manager to get support and make necessary arrangements during your absence.

  • If you have a FEVER and/or have more than one symptoms (sore throat, cough, shortness of breath, pneumonia, loss of sense of taste/smell and other symptoms), please DO NOT come to campus. You should consult a medical doctor at an off-campus medical centre for assessment and treatment. You will be only allowed entry to campus if you are free of symptoms AND have obtained a certificate from the treating doctor that gives you clearance to return to work/study.
  • If you have indicated a single symptom that you believe is not COVID-related (e.g you have a small cough because you smoke), you can redo the form and not indicate this symptom on the form.
  • If you are unsure about your medical condition, please see a doctor or if you need assistance from International SOS, please contact them via phone or email before coming to campus.
