Face coverings

Important information regarding face coverings

As you may well be aware, the Government updates its position regarding COVID-19 advice and guidance on a regular basis and as a Covid-Secure employer, we also revisit our position in the light of this.

As of Monday 14 September 2020, face coverings should now be worn as an additional risk mitigation measure by our students, staff and visitors, in the corridors and communal areas of all buildings on our campuses, as we progress through these. Once we are in our planned location, then face coverings may be removed, unless specifically stated they must be worn, or if an individual is wearing a face covering as part of additional reasonable adjustments following the Personal Assessment discussion.

The following posters will be displayed prominently in all areas where face coverings are required.

Pink and purple poster that will be shown on campus, featuring an image of a face covering with the words face coverings should be worn in this area

To ensure you can access the facilities you need, please ensure you bring a face covering with you when travelling to campus.

Finally, we all want to stay safe and protect the health and safety of others. Therefore, please ensure that you wear your face covering correctly and that you dispose of face coverings in a safe manner. View more information on the safe use of face coverings.

Face Covering Exemptions

Under COVID-19 guidance from the UK Government some people are exempt from wearing face coverings.

Those individuals may feel more comfortable showing something that says they do not have to wear a face covering, and therefore exemption cards are available to print or display on mobile phones from this link https://www.gov.uk/government/news/disabled-people-exempt-from-wearing-face-coverings-under-new-government-guidance.

This may help those individuals to avoid any issues of challenge for not wearing a face covering. In addition, we have also committed to the hidden disabilities ‘Sunflower Scheme’ which will also run in parallel with this .

Sunflower lanyards will be available for all staff and students. The lanyards will enable members of our community to signify that they are exempt from face coverings in a discreet way – should they choose to do so.
