CET CORONAVIRUS UPDATES

  • Social distancing — this is done in line with current government advice. The CET campuses are open and training is being conducted within the constraints of social distancing and minimum space requirements. Advice and signage was put in place instructing social distancing recommendations at the start of the pandemic. The recently raised level of social distancing is being enforced through class management and regular reviews of common areas.
  • Sanitation — hand sanitisers have been provided at multiple locations for staff and students to use. Additionally, we are looking at ways to reduce potential cross infection opportunities, such as sanitising hand tools used by the students. Also, a comprehensive increase in cleaning was taken at the start of the pandemic, including the use of hospital-grade chemicals being used where possible.
  • Air quality — air conditioning filter replacement cycles have also been brought forward and we are now replacing them quarterly.
  • On-campus messages — signage was put in place at the start of the pandemic advising those students who met the original symptoms and criteria for COVID-19 stating not to enter the campuses and advise campus staff via email or phone of their illness.
  • Breaks — CET is currently moving to staggered lunch and break times, encouraging students to take lunch in the outside covered areas.
  • any staff, students or apprentices who have returned to Australia from overseas since Sunday 15 March 2020 must self-isolate for a period of 14 days before returning to the College or ECA WA Incs offices.
  • if someone from the same household as a staff member, student or apprentice has returned to Australia from overseas since 15 March and exhibits any flu like symptoms, then the that staff member, student or apprentice is requested to self-isolate for a period of 14 days before returning to their College or ECA WA Incs offices.
  • if a staff member, student or apprentice does have COVID-19 symptoms and has had possible exposure to the virus, they should not attend the College or ECA WA Incs offices until they have medical confirmation that they do not have COVID-19.
  • any staff member, student or apprentice informed by public health authorities that they have been in close contact with a confirmed case of coronavirus, must isolate themselves for 14 days after the date of last contact with the confirmed case.
  • “limiting non-essential organised “static” gatherings to fewer than 500 people
  • limiting non-essential meetings or conferences of critical workforce (eg. healthcare professionals and emergency services)
  • encouraging all Australians to exercise personal responsibility for social distancing measures”

13/03/2020 — CET open for students
