The College's priority is to support the well-being of our staff and students. We are following the latest government guidance (April 2022) in line with the 'living with COVID' strategy.
Latest Guidance & Reporting Arrangements
The following Government guidance is now in effect and advises that:
- adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and they no longer have a high temperature;
- children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can go back to school, college or childcare when they no longer have a high temperature, and they are well enough to attend;
- adults with a positive COVID test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice will be 3 days. There will no longer be a requirement to test negative on consecutive days before ending any period of isolation.
Please report a positive test to your Tutor or, out of College hours email firstname.lastname@example.org
First and second doses of the vaccination are available to all over 16s at walk in sites or by booking an appointment online. Links to online booking and to find walk in sites can be found below.
