Information about Covid-19, self-isolation, and looking after your health.

Latest updates

Wellbeing resources for our students and staff community are signposted, notably for those experiencing bereavement.

Face coverings must be worn at all times in University buildings, unless you are seated and socially distanced from others. Safe wearing of face coverings requires washing hands before and after touching them - including to remove or put them on - and the safe storage of them in individual, sealable plastic bags between use. Where a face covering becomes damp, it should not be worn and should be replaced carefully.

Anyone with COVID symptoms, a positive test result or identified as a close contact by NHS Test & Trace must self-isolate. Anyone who lives with someone with symptoms or a positive test result must also self-isolate under the government household isolation requirements, for:

  • 10 days, if they do not develop COVID-19 symptoms
  • 10 days (from onset of symptoms) if they do develop COVID-19 symptoms

However, if someone has been told to self-isolate by the NHS Test and Trace service, the rest of their household does not need to self-isolate unless any member of their household develops COVID-19 symptoms.
