To help ensure everyone remains safe on campus throughout the summer period, we would ask members of our community to help us by taking personal responsibility for their actions and by observing the following guidelines:

  • All students and staff must continue to wear face coverings in enclosed indoor spaces (unless exempted).  This includes in offices unless single occupancy where it can be removed.
  • You will still need to report to us if you have had a positive Covid-19 test
  • If you have classes, it is really important that you swipe in to every face-to-face session you attend so that we can contact you in the event of someone in your group reporting Covid-19 symptoms or having a positive test
  • If you have not already done so, we would encourage you to arrange to be vaccinated.

Although we have removed the requirements for social distancing, we would ask that members of our community are respectful of each other’s personal space and help us to avoid crowding on campus.

We would also ask that you take every opportunity to make use of our sanitation stations and to wash your hands on a regular basis.
