University leaders are constantly reviewing the Covid-19 situation and following the Government’s advice to protect our community from the spread of the virus.

The Government’s advice is that we can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:

  • Stay at home as much as possible
  • Work from home if you can
  • Limit contact with other people
  • Keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart)
  • Wash your hands regularly

Self-isolate if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.

Read the Prime Minister’s address for the latest information.

Do not meet others, even friends or family. You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.

We strongly urge you to follow this advice and read more from the Government about what you can and cannot do here..

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. To protect others, please do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Use the 111 online service to find out what to do and only call the number if you cannot get help online .

We can reassure you that we are following all the latest Government guidance and will continue to do everything possible to protect our Edge Hill community from the spread of COVID-19.
