Now England has moved to Step 4 of the government’s Roadmap staff, students and visitors are reminded of the new rules on campus.
The health and safety of our community is our highest priority, and we will all need to make adjustments to the way we live and work.
To keep everyone safe, the university strongly recommends that you:
- Get Vaccinated
We actively support the roll out of Covid-19 vaccines and strongly encourage those that can to be fully vaccinated.
There are a number of ways to get your vaccination. You can book your Covid-19 vaccine via the National Booking Service. You will need to be registered with a GP and have an NHS number.
UK residents can request to book Covid-19 vaccination appointments as an unregistered patient through a local GP practice. You can find out more about GP registration at nhs.uk/register.
- Get tested at least once a week
The university’s testing service detects the coronavirus through a simple saliva sample.
We expect all staff and students not showing symptoms of the coronavirus to test regularly. This offers reassurance, reduces onwards transmission of the virus, and helps to keep everyone safe.
Book your test and find out more on the university testing pages.
- Don’t come on to campus if you feel unwell
If you feel unwell or are displaying Covid-19 symptoms, do not come on to campus. Isolate immediately, Notify the university, and take a confirmatory Test.
If you or anyone in your household has symptoms you must isolate – that means staying at home or in your room. You can get support during this period.
- Face coverings and social distancing
In line with government guidelines social distancing measures are no longer mandatory, however the government expects and recommends that you wear face coverings in crowded and enclosed spaces.
Face coverings work by offering protection to those around you. We ask staff, students and visitors to be respectful of others’ choices and do give people space where it is sensible or requested understanding that some people will feel more comfortable with the lifting of restrictions than others and that health vulnerabilities remain.
- Follow hygiene procedures
Make sure you wash your hands regularly with soap and water for 20 seconds – there will be signs directing you to the nearest handwashing stations.
Clean work and study stations before and after use – this includes mice and keyboards; cleaning equipment will be provided.
Avoid sharing equipment and stationery – including pens and pencils – with other staff and students.
