Positive Covid test – reporting no longer required

June 20th, 2022

Staff and students are no longer required to report a positive Covid-19 test to the university.

Staff should use the central sickness reporting mechanism and alert their line managers, as determined by their departmental process.

Students should report sickness using the process described in their school handbook.

The extensive Covid-19 vaccination programme, alongside development of anti-viral and other treatments which better treat those who do experience more severe symptoms, mean that we no longer need to monitor and manage outbreaks of the virus in the same way.

The end of the academic year brings a natural transmission break on our campuses, and allows us to move to a lower level of infection management, which is appropriate to the current stage of the pandemic.

We would encourage people to continue to follow government advice on living safely with Covid, which emphasises the importance of being vaccinated, continuing to use a mask in enclosed spaces and of trying to avoid contact with others if you have symptoms suggestive of an infectious disease.
