ANU shuts down Monday

It, “will still operate as the nation’s university, but likely not from our campus,” says Brian Schmidt 

As of this morning most staff are not on campus, except for some very limited and select cases and from Monday, “all teaching will be remote”.

““ANU medical experts are clear: to control the spread of COVID-19 we must take tough action to reduce the number of interactions on our campus, and take it now. And that is what we are doing,” Vice Chancellor Brian Schmidt says.

The only people working on campus are in payments and payroll, security and research infrastructure. Childcare centres remain open until government decides they should not be, as do student residences.

The shutdown is in place until June 27.  “Staff will continue to be paid as per usual arrangements,” (or previous announcements).
