We are continuing to closely monitor developments in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic as the situation rapidly changes and we are updating our information daily following official guidance.

The Government’s advice now is to stay at home:

  • Only go outside for food, health reasons or essential work
  • Stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home

Visit Public Health England’s website for more information.

Do not leave home at all if you or someone you live with has either:

  • a high temperature
  • a new continuous cough

Please check the NHS website if you have symptoms. Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. You do not need to contact NHS 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.

Please follow this advice and contact your tutor (students) or line manager (staff) and inform HR hradvisory@edgehill.ac.uk or Student Services studentwellbeing@edgehill.ac.uk by email.

University action:

We can reassure you that we have had no confirmed cases on campus, but the health, welfare and safety of our students, staff and visitors is the number one priority for us and we are following all Government guidance.

All face-to-face classroom teaching for the rest of this semester has been cancelled and we are taking all the necessary steps to shutdown services, while still provide support for students and staff in a virtual environment.

Our University leaders are in contact daily to discuss our response to the current outbreak and will do everything possible to protect everyone in the University community from the spread of COVID-19.

We wanted to remind you of Public Health England’s most up-to-date advice, particularly around travel, advice on staying at home, and general guidance around good hygiene.
