COVID-19 Support for Staff


At UniSA the safety and wellbeing of our staff, students and wider University community continues to be our highest priority. Whilst monitoring the latest information from the Premier of South Australia, SA Health and SAPOL in relation to the Parafield cluster, the University is working with established COVID protocols to minimise the risk of our staff and students contracting the virus. From Wednesday 18 November, as a precautionary measure, staff who are able to perform their duties from home, with the support of their line manager, will be encouraged to do so. For staff members who need to remain delivering services on campus, we will ensure they can work safely. 

In recent months as we have established new ways of working to respond to COVID-19, we have developed a set of online resources to support staff transitioning to new arrangements as and when required. We have developed a set of employment principles to assist staff understanding the implications of COVID-19, including an exceptional special leave with pay provision and a reporting Protocol for staff who may be impacted by the virus so we can ensure they receive appropriate advice and support as soon as possible.  A Protocol for staff to use if a student advises they have been diagnosed with COVID-19 is also available.

Please check in regularly to the COVID-19 Updates and COVID-19 FAQs for Staff pages for the latest information as they are reviewed frequently and provide important details about the University’s management of this changing situation.

We remain committed to supporting the safety and wellbeing of our staff throughout this evolving situation. If there is anything else that would be helpful to you, please let us know by emailing

With warm regards and best wishes

Jane Booth
Executive Director: People, Talent & Culture

Key Information as at 3 December 2020

  • The University will continue to accommodate working from home arrangements for those staff who are not required to physically deliver their duties on campus and have approval from their supervisor.

  •  If you are on campus please check-in your attendance through Safezone. You can do this through the ‘check-in’ button on the app homepage.  This check-in can also be set to ‘automatic’ under the settings tab.

  • Students and staff are not required to check in using the COVID Safe Check-In QR code when on campus for study or work activities, but do need to check in when using a campus retail/food outlet; visiting a gym, pool, or Health Clinic; and when participating in any UniSA activity or event displaying a QR code.

We will keep this page updated with any changes that are relevant to UniSA staff.
