In response to the Australian Government’s advice in regards to the global COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation, Eynesbury College wants to reassure you that your health, safety and educational journey remains our number one priority.
Due to the announcement on Tuesday 27th July by the Premier of South Australia of the lockdown lifting, the Eynesbury Coglin Street campus will re-open as of Wednesday 28th July. All classes will continue to run as they were prior to lockdown. Only non-teaching and ELICOS staff will be on campus until further notice.
Students are welcome on campus but it is mandatory to wear masks and use the COVID SAfe QR check-in codes. You can use the mySA GOV app to scan the QR codes and follow the prompt for easy and fast check-in. Students are still encouraged to use hand sanitiser and observe social distancing. Please also don’t hesitate to use the student support and counselling services available to you.

Frequently Asked Questions about COVID-19
I have a mild cold; do I need to get tested?
Yes. The Australian Government recommend people with any of the symptoms below, even if mild, get tested as soon as symptoms appear:
- fever or chills
- sore throat
- runny nose
- shortness of breath
- loss of taste or smell
- diarrhoea and vomiting
How do I get tested?
You can either contact to your local GP who may test in their clinic. It is also possible to visit dedicated COVID-19 clinics and SA drive-through Testing Clinics. You can find locations here.
Can I attend classes on campus while I am waiting for my test results?
No. After your test go straight home and self-isolate until you get your test results back (usually within 48 hours). Make sure to:
- stay at home and do not attend work, school or childcare
- wash your hands often with soap and water
- cough and sneeze into a clean tissue or your elbow
- avoid close contact with others, including members of your household.
Even if you have a negative result, you should still stay at home until you’re feeling well again. Make sure to let your teachers know that you are self-isolating and discuss options for attending online classes and keeping up with your assignments. If you have a positive result, it is important that you follow the medical advice that you have received. You can find more information here about what to do in case you have a positive result.
Do I have to pay a fee to get tested?
