Vaccinations & COVID-19

The emphasis on decreasing COVID-19 cases to zero is now replaced by that of increasing the number of people vaccinated. Hence the Victorian government has made it mandatory for workers in certain industries to be fully vaccinated.

In this context, we understand that for entry into the Village community centre, it is mandatory for visitors to be fully vaccinated. As for Monash facilities, Monash Council has stipulated that “All persons over 16 years entering a Monash Facility must provide proof of full vaccination status or authorised exemption notice from a Medical Practitioner.” It is U3A Highvale’s policy to adhere to the rules set by our ‘landlords’.

Even with the recent lifting of lockdown restrictions, it is still uncertain when
in-person classes at the Village premises will commence. Members will be notified in a timely manner.

The Pavilion (a Monash Halls facility is likely to open from 12 November 2021.
Class members will be advised nearer the time.

All online classes will continue uninterrupted as per the scheduled timetable.

The practice of COVIDSafe behaviours continues.

Please note that masks must be carried at all times. They are mandatory when inside (except in a residential home) and outdoors when one cannot maintain 1.5m physical distancing (unless a lawful exemption applies).
