COVID-19 lockdown

The government has announced a lockdown from midnight tonight.

This means all Kangan Institute campuses will be closed until next Friday 4 June and our courses will be taught remotely for the duration.

Any students needing clarification on what their course schedule will be in this timeframe are asked to make contact with your teacher or trainer.

The COVID-19 pandemic an ever changing situation and we are following all Government requirements in order to help slow the spread of this virus. Please remember to take all necessary precautions to stay healthy and safe.

Please refer to the official Government website for all details about exposure sites and health advice. www.dhhs.vic.gov.au/coronavirus

25 May 2021

With five cases of community transmission of COVID-19 in Melbourne, new restrictions have been announced.

From 6pm tonight face masks must be worn indoors unless you have an exception. This applies to our Melbourne campuses for all staff and students. There are no changes to density limits for our campuses.


Health authorities are urging people to be vigilant with hand hygiene, to use QR check-in codes at every location they go and to be tested if they have been at an exposure site.

These numerous exposure sites are in Bundoora, Brunswick, Reservoir, Maribyrnong and Epping in the time frame between last Wednesday 19 May to Sunday 23 May.

Please check the list at this official site and follow the instructions of health authorities. If you have been at these sites at these times you must not come to campus. You must get tested and isolate until your results come back.

Mask wearing remains mandatory on public transport and from today the Victoria Police will be patrolling and handing out masks to those who do not have them. Fines of $200 will be issued to those who refuse to wear masks.

Contact tracers are working hard to track the movements of the people currently affected, to make sure all potential exposure sites have been listed.

This is why signing in with the QR code at every campus entrance is critical. It means anyone who might be at risk of contracting COVID-19 can be alerted quickly, and therefore limits further spread of the infectious disease.

Please ensure you are signing in each time you enter one of our campuses, and encourage people around you do the same. It only takes a few seconds to do. This data is held by the Victorian Government, not by Kangan Institute, and it is only retained for 30 days.

Do not come to campus if you are unwell, always wash your hands properly, and never cough or sneeze without covering your mouth.

17 Feburary 2021
