Lockdown 6 -extended to 2 September
as announced on 16 August 2021
Our campus remains closed in response to the latest Victorian COVID snap lockdown.
The lockdown has been extended for a further 14 days and we therefore anticipate being able to re-open on 3 September.
We will monitor the Stage Government's announcements so as to be able to communicate with members, via Gateway eNews when the lockdown is lifted.
