If you or someone you live with tests positive for COVID-19 or has symptoms, you must self-isolate and do not come to campus. Please follow the latest NHS guidance for self-isolation.
If you have symptoms, then you must self-isolate for ten days. If someone you are living with shows symptoms or has tested positive, then the rest of you will need to self-isolate for 14 days. The 14 days start from when the first person in your household/flat started having symptoms or the day they were tested, if they have not had symptoms.
If that member later receives a negative test, you can stop isolating but only if no-one else in the household has developed symptoms.
If, during these 14 days of self-isolation, another member of your household becomes ill, the isolation period for the rest of the household does not need to be extended. Only the person with new COVID-19 symptoms must stay at home for at least a further ten days and should arrange to have a test to see if they have COVID-19.
We are here to support you. If you have symptoms, book a test through the NHS COVID-19 app or via the NHS website. You must put your term time address, not your family home address, when filling in your details.
All students who test positive or who are self-isolating should also notify the University themselves through our self-reporting form. You need to tell us that you have tested positive and/or are self-isolating so we can support you and those around you. Your Faculty will be advised if you have submitted a report but if you would like to discuss your teaching and learning circumstances, including mitigating circumstances please speak to them directly.
Once you have filled in the form it will also help to ensure that our support services are available to support you.
If you have any concerns, please contact your personal tutor.
