Safety guidance


Free Covid-19 testing has ended for most people. 

This means you are not expected to take regular lateral flow Covid-19 tests, or a PCR test if you develop symptoms. 

You may still be able to get free lateral flow tests if you have a placement with the NHS or in social care, are going into hospital, or you’re at high risk of getting seriously ill from Covid-19.

What to do if you feel unwell

While you’re no longer required to self-isolate if you have Covid-19, you should try to stay away from others if you have symptoms. 

Please continue to stay at home if you feel unwell, and do not come to campus.
