2 people who visited Barossa Regional Unversity Campus this week have tested COVID positive in the last 24 hours.

People with COVID-19 are considered infectious two days before their symptoms started, or two days before their positive COVID-19 test was taken if they have no noticeable symptoms.

No students fall into the definition of a close contact of the people who tested positive (being in close proximity with them, unmasked, for a culminative four hours or more) however as a precaution, we are informing all campus visitors who have attended in the past 3 days. We recommend undertaking a rapid antigen test as soon as possible.

For more information about COVID please see the SA Health website.

To reduce the risk to others, if you test positive to COVID-19, you should:

  • Stay home until your acute symptoms have cleared (usually 5 to 7 days)
  • If you must leave the house, wear a mask when indoors or on public transport
  • Avoid large gatherings and crowded indoor places
  • Don’t visit people at high risk of severe illness, or anyone in a hospital, or aged or disability care facility for at least 7 days.
  • Speak with your employer about when to return to work. If you work in a high-risk setting such as a health, disability and aged care, you might need to stay away from work longer to protect other staff, patients, residents and clients.

If you test positive for COVID-19, you may be infectious for up to 10 days but you are most infectious in the two days before your symptoms start and while you have symptoms (runny nose, sore throat, cough and fever).

Speak to your doctor if you think you might be eligible for COVID-19 treatments.
