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. 

Below you will find a set of online resources to support staff transitioning to new arrangements as and when required, employment principles to assist staff understanding the implications of COVID-19, 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.

The University will continue to respond to new information as it comes to hand to ensure we are following all Department of HealthSA Health, the Department of Education, Skills and Employment, and Safe Work Australia guidelines.

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

University campuses are now open to both staff and students.

Where staff can perform their duties from home, and they have an approved work from home arrangement with their line manager, they are encouraged to continue to do so until Friday 6 August. It is anticipated that we will be able to return to ‘pre-lockdown’ work arrangements from Monday 9 August. Further information will be provided about future work from home arrangements as the status and duration of the overall State restrictions become clearer.

For those who are required to attend campus to fulfil their roles, swipe card access will be required for all university buildings.

Face masks will now be required to be worn on campus in all public and shared indoor spaces, including teaching, learning, research, recreation and shared office spaces. Until further notice, this requirement applies to all staff and students and members of the public who wish to access our campus spaces. There will be some exemptions for the wearing of masks and masks do not need to be worn all of the time (e.g. when eating/drinking).
