If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 then please don’t enter the campus. All students should continue to follow NHS guidance on social distancing, hand-washing and NHS Test and Trace. There will be marking on the floor on campus to assist you with social distancing and hand sanitisers available to use in buildings.
