Staying safe on campus
Showing care and consideration for others after legal restrictions end
Keep it kind on campus
Since the pandemic began, we have seen countless examples of kindness and commitment from students and staff to protect their families, friends and communities. Now that legal restrictions are removed, it is more important than ever that we continue being supportive to each other, mindful that each of us has experienced Covid-19 in different ways.
As a University community, we must now transition into a culture of considerate personal responsibility so that we can all work and study together.
Measures that will remain in place
- Strong encouragement for staff and students to continue to wear face coverings inside and in crowded areas. We ask everyone to remain considerate of others, to protect yourself and our communities in this way.
- Continued provision of hand sanitiser and handwashing stations, perspex screens, and an enhanced cleaning regime in teaching spaces, offices and public areas
- Support to continue regular testing as an important part of limiting the spread of the virus, even once fully vaccinated. A Covid testing site will continue to be available over the summer and through the autumn to facilitate this. Home testing kits are also available to collect and will be provided to new students in welcome packs on their arrival
Social distancing, reduced room capacities and one-way systems are no longer in place.
Further measures to keep safe on campus are under consideration and we will continue to carry out risk assessments, contact tracing, and work closely with local public health teams to monitor and manage our outbreak management plan.
Anyone showing COVID-19 symptoms will be asked to undertake a test off-site and may have to self-isolate. We will support the track and trace process to protect others by limiting the spread of the virus
