Changes to the Testing Service over Easter

March 22nd, 2021

The university’s Asymptomatic Testing Service will be closed over the Easter Weekend (Friday 2 – Tuesday 6 April). To ensure full results are communicated prior to this closure, the last day to submit a sample will be Wednesday 31 March.

From Wednesday 7 to Friday 9 April, the testing service will open for sample collection from 10 am – 2 pm at our usual testing stations. The testing service will resume normal operations on Monday 12 April.

Staff are reminded that they can access the online booking system to arrange asymptomatic Covid-19 testing slots several weeks in advance.

Staff who are on campus regularly are urged to take a test, at least once a week, even if they have been vaccinated. The university is in full support of staff on campus accessing asymptomatic testing during paid working hours.

This will help keep you safe, protect loved ones and the wider community, and help ensure that our university can remain open for essential teaching and research.

If you test positive, the university has a number of support systems available for staff. Chris Denning, Professor of Stem Cell Biology and a member of the testing service said: “A member of our team will talk to you to discuss your result and then come up with the best solution that works for you depending on your circumstances.”
