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. The University is working with established COVID protocols to minimise the risk of our staff and students contracting the virus. 

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 pandemic. 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
