Advice for students and staff
19 July 2021 marks the end of legal Covid restrictions in England at Step 4 of the government’s ‘roadmap’ of plans to lift lockdown. York St John University will adopt a gradual transition towards working on campus from 1 September to prepare for the delivery of in person learning and teaching at the start of the academic year.
Students and staff accessing campus should continue twice weekly testing. City of York Council are operating the symptom-free coronavirus testing centre in the Music Block on the York campus. Book symptom free coronavirus testing.

Reported COVID-19 cases
Our YSJ COVID Coordination Centre is recording all periods of self-isolation and all positive COVID-19 test results within our University community. These figures are reported daily to City of York Council and local public health teams.
As of Monday 20 September, we report that 2 members of our University community are currently self-isolating because they have tested positive for COVID-19. All close contacts have been advised to self-isolate in accordance with government guidance.
We have around 7,500 students and over 900 members of staff at York St John University.
To monitor cases effectively, we ask students who are self-isolating to use the absence and self-isolation form hosted on the website which has been adapted to capture COVID-19 data.
Staff are asked to report their own information (whether symptomatic, or self-isolating with no symptoms) using the COVID-19 Reporting Form on our staff intranet.
