What to do if you test positive

If you have a positive test result for COVID-19, do not come to campus.

Follow the Victorian Government advice: Checklist for COVID cases

If you have been on campus in the two days before receiving your test result, you must let us know by calling the Melbourne Polytechnic coronavirus hotline on 03 9269 1113.

What to do if you are a household contact

If you are a household contact of a person who tested positive to COVID-19, you can continue coming onto campus as long as you are not displaying symptoms.

Contacts are required to:

  • Wear a face mask
  • Notify Melbourne Polytechnic via our coronavirus hotline
  • Conduct at least five rapid antigen tests (RATs) over the course of seven days, with each test being at least 24 hours apart.
