If you have access to lateral flow tests, then we’d ask that you and your guests take a test before your visit as part of our continued effort nationally to reduce the risk of Covid transmission. If you test positive or are currently self-isolating then please do not attend and we’ll be happy to rearrange for you to attend a future open day. The NHS has a helpful map of locations where you can collect rapid lateral flow tests, or you can order them online.
We recommend that all visitors to the University have downloaded the NHS Covid-19 app prior to their visit and it’s also worth ensuring that Bluetooth is enabled on your mobile for the duration of the visit. Please be aware that catering areas and some buildings across the University will require checking in via the NHS Covid-19 app.
Some activities at our open days will take place outside, including your campus tour. For any activities that take place inside buildings, such as our Study Fair, we’d strongly encourage and advise that you wear a face covering to keep you, our students and staff safe during your visit. Current Government advice asks us to be careful when meeting those from outside of our household with whom we would not normally meet, and face coverings are one of the mitigations that we can use in enclosed and crowded spaces. We will have some masks available at our check-in but we ask you to bring your own for your own comfort and to wear during your travel to campus.
During your visit, you should also be mindful that other individuals will have varying degrees of confidence with regards to social distancing, and so we’d ask you to respect the space of others whilst on campus.
We’ll be regularly cleaning all areas throughout the event to help keep people safe and hand sanitiser stations are available in all buildings and all catering outlets.
If the national situation changes and we have to adapt our event to any government guidelines, we will of course keep you informed. Otherwise we look forward to meeting you on Saturday 20 November.
