Image representing frequently asked questions about COVID-19

UPDATED 13/10/2022 

From 11:59pm on Wednesday 12 October 2022, COVID-19 isolation requirements have changed. The Victorian Government has announced the end of the Pandemic Declaration and associated Pandemic Orders.

Vaccine requirements for students, trainees and apprentices
It is strongly recommended that:

  • Any person who has tested positive for COVID-19 should stay home and isolate for 5 days and not return to onsite study until they are no longer symptomatic
  • Any person who has symptoms, but has not tested positive, should not attend their place of study until they are no longer symptomatic.

Face masks
The Department of Health recommends that masks should be worn by a person who has COVID-19 for at least 7 days after a positive test, when they need to leave home.

How will The Gordon store my personal medical and background check data?
Students in courses that require the submission of personal medical (e.g. immunisation history and vaccination records) and background check (Police and/or Working With Children Check) data for placement purposes will have their documentation stored in a secure document management system within The Gordon. This private information will only be accessible by required Gordon employees to facilitate placement coordination and booking. Documentation or confirmation of the citing of documentation, will be provided to placement host organisations, as required by the placement hosts policies and procedures.
If a third-party placement provider requires The Gordon to share personal health information, students are required to complete an Information Release Consent Form (RM FO 06.02) prior to documentation or confirmation of the citation of documentation being provided to placement host organisations. Failure to complete this form and/or to provide the required documentation prior to placement, may result in cancellation of placement by the placement host organisation, with additional placement re-booking fees charged by The Gordon to arrange a new placement to meet course requirements. On completion of your course, your medical and background check data will be deleted by The Gordon.
