COVID-19 Update Information

The health and wellbeing of Deakin students and our DeakinACTIVE members remains our highest priority. We are following all government and health guidelines, and listening carefully to any questions and concerns we receive from our staff, members and Deakin University as we move through this new COVID normal. If you are a student of Deakin University, you can find further information on the Deakin University website COVID-19 FAQ.


Important Information

As part of the roadmap to living with COVID and to follow all VIC Government and public health advice, from November 3rd, 2021* only fully vaccinated staff, students and visitors (or those with an ATAGI-approved reason for an exception) will be able to enter any DeakinACTIVE facilities. Please make sure you have received both doses by this date and have received your vaccination certificate.

*On your first visit to DeakinACTIVE from the 3rd November, our staff need to sight your current vaccination certificate and will make a note of your immunisation status on your membership file for future reference. Members will not be able to attend DeakinACTIVE without double vaccination.

Not sure how to get proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status? See here for more info. For further information about the road map back to campus, please refer to Deakin University’s plans to re-open. Any queries, please  don’t hesitate to email us directly.
