COVID-19 - Centre operations update

Monash University's Prato Centre, Italy, is temporarily closed to the public. Teaching activities, meetings, events and conferences have been suspended until 3 April 2020, consistent with the advice of the Italian Government. The University will continue to review the situation in line with Italian Government advice.

Remote working arrangements have been made for staff, as appropriate.

The University is acting in accordance with the advice from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) smartraveller website, which currently advises all Australians “do not travel overseas at this time” (level 4), regardless of their destination, age or health.

Monash is continually monitoring the DFAT advice and will not compromise on the safety and wellbeing of students and staff. We will continue to assess each activity in response to the challenges COVID-19 currently poses to the local and global community.
