*The statistics for Monday 28 September include data gathered over the weekend.
We will update the figures with data from the previous day. Figures gathered over the weekend will be provided on Mondays.
We have around 8,000 staff members, and typically have a student body of around 29,000.
When we receive notification of a suspected or confirmed case of Covid-19, we follow detailed processes and procedures, including tracking and tracing to reduce onward transmission, communications to relevant staff and students, and cleaning of affected areas where appropriate. Staff and students who are confirmed as having Covid-19 are asked to share details of their close contacts to allow us to inform those that will need to self-isolate in line with government guidelines. In addition to this information, we are using timetabling data and system logs to identify staff and students who may have been in close proximity to a confirmed Covid-19 case and may therefore have to isolate.
When a member of the University community tests positive, they self-isolate with their household in line with government guidelines.
Managers will maintain appropriate contact with the staff member during this period and plan their return to work at the end of the 10 days if the staff member’s symptoms have ceased and they are able to recommence working.
Staff who have any concerns, or need any support, should speak to their line manager or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We also have a range of mental health and wellbeing support available, including the Health Assured staff advisory line and counselling service.
Process for students
You must complete the form when you begin self-isolating, even if you have no symptoms. For example, if you have been identified as a contact and asked to self-isolate by NHS track and trace or if someone in your household has symptoms and is awaiting test results. If you develop symptoms while self-isolating, please complete the form again.
Process for staff
Notify your line manager as soon as possible.
For further details and guidance for managers, read the managing a suspected or confirmed case of Covid-19 protocol document.
