Coronavirus - further advice for students

Posted by bv39 at Jan 31, 2020 04:30 PM |

The Foreign Commonwealth Office (FCO) advise against all travel to Hubei Province due to the outbreak. If you’re in this area and able to leave, you should do so. They also advise against all but essential travel to the rest of mainland China. For full guidance and updates, please visit the FCO website.

If you are travelling or are based in China currently, I would also advise you to register on the University’s SafeZone app. Please download the app via the Apple or Android store.

If you have returned from China in the last 14 days, please follow the Public Health England guidelines.

During the coming weeks, more hand sanitisation points will be installed across campus including teaching spaces and communal areas in student halls of residence.

And please do keep following basic hygiene guidelines as advised by the World Health Organisation.

You can read updates about the situation from Public Health England and from the World Health Organisation.

If, having read the advice and guidance on the above webpages, you feel that you need to talk to somebody about the matter, please contact our Student Support team.

If you feel it is an urgent matter and you need more immediate medical advice, please contact the NHS on 111 or visit the NHS 111 website.
