Face coverings

Our University policy no longer requires you to wear a face covering in any of our University or Students’ Union buildings. Face coverings are a personal choice and we would expect that everyone is understanding of individual preferences.

Please be mindful that Public Health guidance remains in place suggesting individuals can still reduce the risk of catching and passing on COVID-19 by wearing a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces, where you may come into contact with people you do not normally meet.

Sunflower Lanyard scheme

To help provide a safe and inclusive on campus experience, Staffordshire University and Staffordshire University Students’ Union support the Sunflower Lanyard Scheme, a national Government initiative.

Under COVID-19 guidance from the UK Government, some people are exempt from wearing face coverings. To support our staff and students, Staffordshire University joined The Invisible Disabilities Sunflower lanyard scheme, making sunflower lanyards available for all staff and students to allow members of our community signify that they are exempt from face coverings in a discreet way – should they choose to do so.

While the scheme is not a requirement by law, our University has taken the decision to ask all students, staff and visitors to work with us in doing everything we can to keep our University community safe during the pandemic.

In relation to anyone exempt from wearing a face covering, we are asking you to wear your sunflower lanyard, or carry another form of exemption with you when you are on campus.

If you have an exemption, you will never be asked for any personal information, but when on campus please be ready to show evidence that you are following the government exemption declaration if you choose not to wear a sunflower lanyard.

Availability of hand sanitiser

As part of our commitment to maintaining a COVID-secure environment for our students, staff and local communities, we have taken every possible measure to make hand sanitiser available at key points across our campuses. However, due to the breadth of our University’s facilities, it is not possible to provide hand sanitiser in every room.

We therefore encourage all members of our University community to bring their own hand sanitiser with them when visiting our campuses to supplement the hand sanitising stations that we have installed.
