MESSAGE FROM QRME EXECUTIVE:

QRME is open and operating within the current public health situation.

QRME is taking the threat of COVID-19 seriously and is concerned for all our students and staff.

QRME has a business continuity plan to manage our response to the virus; we are monitoring the advice of Queensland Health and the Federal Department of Health and planning for a range of scenarios should the virus impact directly on any of our campuses.

QRME has decided to cancel all face to face training at our Toowoomba campus from Monday 16 March 2020 and we are transitioning to remote/on line learning with staff working from home where possible.

QRME recommends students and staff wash their hands regularly with soap and water or alcohol-based rubs, practice self distancing and stay at least 1.5 metres away from people coughing and sneezing, and please isolate yourself and call 13HEALTH, your student coordinator, or your manager if feeling unwell.

QRME's Risk Management Plan can be accessed here
