COVID-19 and your wellbeing
The Coronavirus pandemic has gone through a number of phases since it began in late 2019. As a result of the successful roll out of the vaccination programme and more effective treatments to prevent severe illness, the pandemic has moved to a point where we are ‘living with Covid’. There are still simple measures we can take to minimise transmission of Covid-19 and other infectious diseases including having good hand hygiene and adopting behaviours such as Catch it, Bin it, Kill it.
The online form to report Covid-19 related absence has now been closed. If you get a positive result, you can report your absence in the same way as you would currently report any other absence from the University. If you are unsure on how to report your absence, please contact your Personal Tutor.
Advice and support is still available from the following places if you need it.
