All delegates should note that this year’s NATSIEHC is being prepared as an in-person event, in line with NSW Government and the University of Melbourne COVID-19 guidelines and requirements for in-person events.
The University of Melbourne events continue to operate in accordance with COVIDSafe settings and the Conference Leadership Group and Conference organising group is committed to delivering a COVIDSafe event in conjunction with NSW health and government advice.
The NSW Government and the University of Melbourne continues to strongly encourage individuals to remain up to date with their COVID-19 vaccinations, but the University and NSW Health do not require evidence of vaccination to access in-person events.
Please note that we are running an event where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders and community members will be in attendance. We ask that you do not attend the 2023 NATSIEHC if you have any COVID-19 symptoms, including a fever, chills or sweats, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, runny nose, or loss or change in sense of taste or smell – however mild, even if you have a negative rapid antigen test result. IEHU will provide disposable surgical masks for delegates at the registration desk
