COVID-19 Update: restrictions lifted

Friday, 12 February 2021


Good news today that the Premier has announced Western Australia can return to pre-lockdown conditions as of Sunday 14 February.

Face masks will no longer be compulsory but you will still be required to check in using the SafeWA app or use contact registration methods at various locations on campus.

You can be assured that ECU is committed to providing a safe and healthy learning environment for you. This includes the deep cleaning of Buildings 31 and 34 on the Joondalup Campus.

While the immediate threat has passed, we must remain vigilant and follow the Government’s health advice. I remind you to:

  • Maintain good personal hygiene, including frequent hand-washing;
  • Stay home if you are unwell, and if you have to miss a class because you are unwell, contact your Unit Coordinator to find out how you can catch up;
  • Get tested and self-isolate if you have any symptoms;
  • Notify ECU of a COVID-19 test and the outcome of that test;
  • Maintain physical distance from others where possible; and
  • Observe all campus signage and directions regarding COVID-19, including the SafeWA app and 2 square metre rule.

For students new to ECU, a reminder that O Week commences on Monday, 15 February with a full program of activities to help you get ready to study.

For all students, ECU’s range of support services are available on-campus or online and include general student enquiries, health services, counselling, and equity, diversity and disability services.

Can I take this opportunity to wish you every success for the 2021 academic year and thank you for your support and ongoing cooperation when visiting our campuses.


Professor Steve Chapman CBE
Vice Chancellor
