The UK Government’s current messaging states that we can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:
Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.
Our response and support processes are designed to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our students. By understanding these, keeping informed and taking action when it’s necessary, we will be able to offer information advice and support
Take action – If you are at home or in University Halls of Residence when you experience symptoms, stay there and do not come onto campus. If you are on campus, make sure you maintain two metre social distancing, wear your face covering, apply hand gel and immediately head home.
Tell your course leader – email/call your course leader and let them know you are experiencing symptoms.
Request a test – don’t delay, as soon as you have symptoms request a free test (in person or by post) from the NHS here: https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test
Report your symptoms – you must report any symptoms immediately on our online form
We’ll support you – you’ll receive information after you have notified us.
Isolation – to ensure the safety of others, you need to immediately self-isolate. If your test result is positive you’ll need to remain in isolation for 10 days, and members of your household (including flatmates if you are living away from your family home) will need to isolate for 14 days. If your test result is negative there is no need to continue isolating. More information on how to self-isolate from the NHS can be found here.
Getting your test result – you’ll receive this from the NHS within 48 hours (although we know that this is currently taking longer) and you’ll need to let our COVID-19 Support team know the result immediately.
What to do once you've received your test results:
If your test results are negative, as long as you feel well and have not been told to isolate by NHS test and trace, you no longer have to isolate.
If your test results are positive:
The NHS test and trace system will send you an email or text and you’ll need to give details of your close contacts.
Once you have completed the online form the COVID-19 response and support team will contact you to offer information advice, guidance and support. If you’re isolating within University accommodation, we can help to organise food and other essential resources so you don’t have to leave your accommodation.
Completing a period of self-isolation/recovery
Keep isolating for at least 10 days from when your symptoms started. Anyone you live with, and other close contacts identified, must self-isolate for 14 days from when you start self-isolating.
If you have any health concerns about your recovery support is available through the NHS – read more here.
When can I come back to campus if I have had a positive test?
You can find more information on how long to self-isolate for on the NHS website here.
Stay at home and follow the self-isolation guidance if:
If you are self-isolating:
Detailed self-isolation guidance can be found on the NHS website.
If you are self-isolating and are a Student at the University, please ensure you fill out Self-Isolation Declaration form for students.
There is separate advice if you're told by NHS Test and Trace that you've been in contact with a person with coronavirus.
For information about self-isolating when you come to the UK, see GOV.UK: how to self-isolate when you travel to the UK.
To protect others, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Stay at home and use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do. Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
If you can, you should walk or cycle as much as possible. Plan ahead and read the Government's cycle safety and road safety tips.
