Keeping our Community COVID-safe

Ormond College has a strong COVID-safe management plan in place to ensure the safety, health and welfare of our staff and students.

The College’s COVID-safe plan has been developed in consultation with infection control experts and guided by the latest government health advice. 

All staff and students are required to adhere to physical distancing guidelines, we have increased our safety and hygiene measures and continue to adapt our practices to ensure we adhere to the latest government advice.

The College continues to work with the Students’ Club and Middle Common Room to ensure student events are engaging and safe for the community, while Ormond will continue to support students with face-to-face tutorials, forums and consults where possible.

We remain committed to continuing to provide an exceptional experience for our students.
