As part of the ANU’s policy to prevent COVID-19 transmission on campus, the University announced last night that it will be providing free rapid antigen test kits (RATs) and P2/N95 face masks to all students and staff. At this stage, the stalls are running from today until next Thursday, the 17th of February.

Currently all staff, students, and visitors to campus must wear masks indoors with exceptions in certain situations, as per ACT Health guidelines.

Any staff, students enrolled in at least one course this semester, or ANU alumni with Honorary or Emeritus status, can collect their eight RATs and five face masks from two stalls. 

One is in Kambri on Tangey Road, around the corner from Harry Hartog, open from 8am to 5pm on weekdays. The other is at the Fulton Muir Building, at the North Road entrance off Barry Drive, near Willows Oval, from 8am to 7pm. 

Students do not have to be living on campus to be eligible for free masks and RATs.

However, students and staff need to provide their University ID card upon arrival at the stalls. Students without ID cards will need to contact Student Central to arrange an ID card before collecting their RATs and face masks.

We acknowledge the Ngunnawal and Ngambri people, who are the Traditional Custodians of the land on which Woroni, Woroni Radio and Woroni TV are created, edited, published, printed and distributed. We pay our respects to Elders past and present. We acknowledge that the name Woroni was taken from the Wadi Wadi Nation without permission, and we are striving to do better for future reconciliation.
