We are currently following the directives from the university as they become available. Over the duration of the shutdown, we have been coordinating the fabrication and supply of thousands of units of PPE for health care workers. This project will be continuing until the end of June, meaning that the MakerSpace will be unavailable until that time.
Our current plan is to reopen the MakerSpace to all inducted members who have approval to be on campus on Monday 29 June. This approval will come through your college. We intend to restart inductions and general opening hours at the start of Semester 2 (Monday 27 July), in accordance with the current ANU policy outlined in the attached image.
Of course, these dates are subject to change based on how the pandemic and university advice evolves. We’ll be keeping this notice on the website up to date. Inside our MakerSpaces, restrictions will be in place so that our users can adhere to social distancing. This information will be specific for each MakerSpace location, so make sure to read the signs on the doors before you enter.
You can also find more information about campus and the COVID19 plan here.
All the best,
JD, Saskia, Rachael, Jordan, and Sophia
