Keeping Covid-secure

We can all help reduce the spread of Covid-19 by taking simple actions when using campus.

If have Covid-19 symptoms

If you have any symptoms of Covid-19, and have a high temperature or you do not feel well enough to go to work or do your normal activities please stay at home and do not come to campus.  If you are in student accommodation avoid interacting with other residents.

The NHS says you should not return to your normal activities until you:

  • feel well enough to do so
  • do not have a high temperature

If you have Covid-19

If you have tested positive for Covid-19 please stay at home and do not come to campus.  Use our Covid-19 reporting form to tell us.

The NHS advises that if you have Covid-19, you can pass on the virus to other people for up to 10 days from when your infection starts. Many people will no longer be infectious to others after 5 days.

You should:

  • try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days
  • avoiding meeting people at higher risk from COVID-19 for 10 days, especially if their immune system means they’re at higher risk of serious illness from COVID-19, even if they’ve had a Covid-19 vaccine

Face-coverings on campus

We recommend all our students, staff and visitors wear face-coverings when moving around inside campus, in communal spaces or when interacting with other people.

Complimentary face-coverings are available from reception desks at the front of:

  • Richard Hoggart Building
  • Deptford Town Hall
  • Loring Hall/Accommodation Management Centre
  • Caroline Graveson Building

Wash your hands regularly

There are hand sanitiser dispensers throughout our buildings.

Use these when you enter a building and regularly as you move around. Or wash your hands with soap and water.

Keep rooms ventilated

Where possible open the windows of the room you are in to help with ventilation.

Our air conditioning units will be switched on to assist with the airflow.
