COVID-19 safety at Open Day

Griffith University takes the threat of coronavirus seriously. Like all our events, Open Day will adhere to the Queensland Government’s COVID-19 Safe guidelines, so you can rest assured we’re taking the necessary steps to keep everyone as safe as possible.

Although Open Day is a largely outdoor event, we encourage the use of masks, and will have these—as well as hand sanitiser—freely available on the day. We’ll also be practising social distancing, and will manage attendance at the various information sessions and activities around the campus in service of this.
