Masthead of U3A Hawthorn, Victoria, Australia: gateway to new learning experiences

Site update:22 October 2021


Our campus remains closed in response to the current Victorian COVID lockdown.

The resctrictions have been extended until Victoria reaches the 80% fully vaccinated target. Government modelling indicates that may be reached by 5 November. It is anticipated that we will be able to have some face-to-face classes after that date, whilst meeting strict requirements including density specifications for each room, indoor mask wearing, check in using the Service Victoria App via QR codes or our kiosks and the mandate that all participants must have two COVID19 vaccinations.

We will monitor the Stage Government's announcements so as to be able to communicate with members, via Gateway eNews when the restrictions are eased.
