Covid-19: Guidance for affected students & staff
I’ve tested positive for Covid-19, or I’m experiencing symptoms, or a close contact of somebody with Covid-19 – what do I do?
Please contact the Welcome Centre on a Covid-19 reporting hotline between the hours of 8am and 8pm on 01803 847019 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you:
- are self-isolating as a close contact or
- are experiencing Covid-19 symptoms or
- have a Positive LFD or PCR test result.
Anybody experiencing Covid-19 symptoms must self-isolate immediately – we recommend you return home if you can do so safely and without using public transport. It is important that if you are symptomatic that you take a PCR test as soon as possible.
If someone in your shared accommodation has symptoms, you must self-isolate unless you are fully vaccinated (with the second dose received a minimum of 14 days before) – please follow UK Government guidance.
