Supporting our students and keeping our community safe
The UK government has removed COVID-19 restrictions in England but there are still steps you can take to reduce the risk of catching and spreading the virus. Most recent Guidance for people with symptoms of a respiratory infection including COVID-19 was published in April 2022.
- You are no longer legally required to isolate if you have COVID-19 symptoms
- But if you have COVID-19 symptoms or feel unwell you should stay in and avoid company, especially those at higher risk of becoming seriously ill from respiratory infection
- Similarly, if you have a positive COVID-19 test please stay at home and avoid contact with others for 5 days after taking your test
- Face coverings are no longer mandatory in public settings but if you are unwell or just feel more comfortable wearing a mask, you should do so.
How we can support you:
- If you have any concerns please don’t hesitate to contact your tutor or the Senior Tutor
- If you would like to talk to someone else about your health, our Head of Student Wellbeing and Welfare, nurse and counsellor are available too
- If you are unwell and staying in, please ask friends and housemates to help, and if you need to arrange additional support such as food deliveries, email email@example.com.
- There is comprehensive welfare advice on our website
- The University provides help and support too.
