Important notice to students and staff: Coronavirus (COVID-19)

At Macquarie Community College (MCC) we are committed to putting our community first. These are the proactive steps we are taking to ensure your safety.

We Monitor and Act on the Official Advice of Government and Industry Bodies

We maintain all COVID-19 restrictions put in place at any given time by the NSW Government or relevant industry bodies.

As the COVID-19 situation is changing on a regular basis, Macquarie Community College monitors the situation closely and reviews advice regularly to ensure we are responding appropriately to changing levels of restrictions and requirements.

Our COVID-19 Safety Plan includes the following key principles:

  • Vaccination is strongly recommended for students attending to face-to-face classes.
  • Staff and students with even the mildest of symptoms, such as a headache, fatigue, cough, sore throat or runny nose, should not attend the college, even if fully vaccinated, and follow the current NSW Health guidelines .
  • All staff, students and visitors to our sites will be required to follow a range of safety measures including use of hand sanitiser and managing common area usage and wearing masks, where required.
  • Ventilation of training rooms will be site-specific where everything practical will be done to promote natural airflow.
  • Sanitisation and cleaning equipment and processes are in place at all sites.
  • Check in procedures are currently not required.
  • Due to changes to the COVID-19 rules in NSW, masks are no longer mandatory in the College. However they are still encouraged in indoor environments for students and staff where you cannot maintain a safe distance from others.
  • Some specific arrangements may vary, and additional regulations may apply for some community venues, specific courses and for students and staff covered under the Public Health Order covering schools, aged care and childcare. These requirements are being added to the class details as they become available, and all students enrolled in courses that may be affected will be directly advised of the requirements that apply.
  • Any student or staff member that has recently attended the college and tests positive for COVID-19 must inform the College. All information will be treated with confidentiality and in accordance with our privacy policy. Please call or email your trainer who will inform their manager.
  • Should you test positive please also follow the current NSW Health testing and managing guidelines .

    The MCC staff team are continuing to work on a business-as-usual basis and can be contacted by phone, email or through our website and our campuses are open to the public.

    One thing we have learned is to be flexible, have a back-up plan and respond as quickly as possible to the COVID-19 situation.

    Mixed modes of learning – Remote and in-person (on campus) classes

    We have developed our remote learning capability during the rapidly changing times of COVID-19.

    In addition to our face-to-face classes on campus and in community venues we now have an extensive range and a wide variety of online learning options.

    Our COVID-19 safety plan involves offering mixed modes of learning – in person and remote. We can switch between modes should it be required.

    The focus is keeping you safe and keeping you learning. For the most up to date class information, check out our website for further details about our programs.
