Covid-Safe Information

This is a hybrid event with all attendees able to watch and participate in the proceedings online via livestream. The livestream link will be provided to all registered attendees (including those attending in person) prior to the event.

For those attending in person, RMIT University’s COVIDSafe Plan has a number of different safety measures and protocols in place to protect the health and safety of everyone on campus and to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The latest information and guidance from RMIT University is available on the RMIT website at


Face masks are no longer mandated by the University for most activities, however we strongly encourage all participants to wear masks indoors and where you can’t physically distance.


RMIT is fully compliant with Victorian Government advice for ventilation, including:

  • Well maintained and operated air conditioning and ventilation systems to help reduce the risk of virus transmission. RMIT’s heat, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems are very well maintained under the comprehensive planned preventative maintenance (PPM) contract with Airmaster (air-conditioning system).
  • Regular inspections, maintenance and cleaning of all air conditioning and ventilation systems. This is also included in the PPM activities completed by Airmaster.


RMIT has initiated an indoor air quality (CO2) monitoring program to monitor each of the indoor spaces across RMIT. The monitoring is live and the monitoring devices are rotated to ensure all spaces are monitored. Any adverse readings will be remediated promptly and attendees kept up to date. RMIT is prioritising air quality monitoring in the venue during the event.


All room capacity limits will be operated within the designated capacity.


Hand sanitiser will be available at the event. High-touch areas are frequently cleaned and all spaces are deep cleaned on a regular basis.


Staff, students and visitors are no longer be required to be vaccinated to attend any RMIT campus or facility.


If you are travelling to the event, please consider your own safety and consider wearing an N95/P2 mask at airports and during airplane travel and in shared spaces such as lifts, vehicles, taxis, buses and other ground travel. You may wish to request in advance that windows be at least partly open on both sides of vehicles prior to arrival, the driver be in a mask, and vehicle air-conditioning set to fresh air intake.

If you are feeling unwell, please do not attend this event in-person – instead, stay home, seek medical advice and consider getting a COVID-19 test. COVID-19 symptoms are listed on the Victorian Government website.
