COVID-19 Policy

SAHMRI's response to COVID-19
COVID-19 Policy

SAHMRI is committed to the health and wellbeing of our entire community including those we work with and for.

SAHMRI is once again open to the public and has resumed hosting both public and private events.

Visitors who need access beyond the ground floor entrance foyer of SAHMRI's North Terrace headquarters are required to check in at the reception desk.

SAHMRI encourages all visitors to wear masks, particularly in areas such as lifts where social distancing is impractical.

As of 31 August 2022, anyone attending a SAHMRI facility, including its North Terrace headquarters and its Preclinical. Imaging and Research Laboratories (PIRL) at Gilles Plains, will need to be triple-vaccinated against COVID-19. This includes staff, partners, students, volunteers, contractors and visitors.

Proof of vaccination will need to be shown at the Security Desk or to a member of SAHMRI’s Facilities team before a person is admitted to a SAHMRI facility.

This documentation will be sighted and the person’s vaccination status recorded. SAHMRI will not keep a copy of the vaccination certificate on record.

Proof of vaccination will only need to be shown once, not each visit.
