COVID-19 update – 12 October. 2022

Australian Institute of Language (AIL) Statement

PLEASE NOTE: IELTS testing will continue in a safe and healthy manner at AIL. For any enquiry, please send us an email or give us a call. We apologise for the inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding during these challenging times.

Dear staff, students and test takers,

You may be aware that the Victorian Government has announced changes to the COVID-19 isolation requirements.

This means that from 11.59pm on Wednesday 12th October, the mandatory orders around isolation for people with COVID-19 have ended and instead we move to health advice and recommendations for people with COVID-19 or COVID-19-like symptoms.

Our college will continue to adhere to the Department of Health’s recommendations to ensure that our college remains a safe environment for our staff, students and test takers.

The Department of Health strongly recommends that:

  • who test positive to COVID-19 stay home and isolate for 5 days and do not attend any of our college premises after 5 days if they are still symptomatic.
  • who are symptomatic, but have not tested positive, not attend any of our college premises. This does not include those with pre-existing conditions such as hay fever.

Staff, students and test takers are recommended to continue to report if they have COVID-19 to us.

We ask everyone in our college and community to remain vigilant in preventing COVID-19 transmission. Any staff or student who is unwell should continue to remain at home. This is about keeping staff and students healthy and well in our college and reducing the spread of both COVID-19 and other respiratory diseases.

Staff, students and test takers who wish to wear a mask should continue to do so. To keep our college as safe as possible, we will also continue to use air purifiers, offer free face masks, and other COVID-19 prevention measures.

Thanks for your continued efforts to keep our college community safe and well.

We will continue to communicate with students and staff when new information becomes available.

If you have any further concerns, inquiries, or questions, please contact us for support.
