COVID-19 Student Update (13/04/22)
Please note there will be a change to Covid prevention measures which will take effect AFTER the Easter break.
- Wearing Face Coverings
From Friday 22 April 2022, the wearing of face coverings across our campuses and in classrooms and workshops will be a personal choice. Those who wish to wear a face covering are encouraged to do so, but this will no longer be a mandatory requirement.
- Lateral Flow Testing
From Friday 22 April 2022, we will no longer provide Free Lateral Flow Testing (LFT) in the College. This corresponds with advice to the general public, which sees a move away from regular testing without symptoms. Whilst LFT kits will no longer be available on campus, you can still order them from https://www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests (free of charge) should you develop Covid related symptoms. You will be able to order online until the end of June 2022.
- Contact Tracing
The College will continue with our current contact tracing procedures until the end of June 2022. Should you test positive with Covid before the end of June, please let your lecturer know.
While these relaxations bring us in line with wider guidance, it is important to remember that Covid-19 has not gone away and there is still a need to try and reduce the transmission of Covid-19. The College continues to encourage you to apply Covid hygiene measures and respect social distancing where possible.
Thank you for your continued support and co-operation!
