The main symptoms of coronavirus are:
- a high temperature - this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
- a new, continuous cough - this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or three or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
- a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste - this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
Most people with coronavirus have at least one of the symptoms above.
These symptoms are different to a cold. If you are not sure you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call NHS 111 for further advice or view NHS 111 online
If you do have these symptoms complete the form found on this page.
We will advise you to seek a test from the NHS via their online test booking system. Currently there is a Mobile Testing Unit on campus but all tests have to be booked via the NHS. If you need a test then you will also have to self-isolate and follow the current NHS guidance on this.
If you or anyone in your household has symptoms of coronavirus you and your household need to self-isolate and the person experiencing symptoms needs to get tested. You all must self-isolate for 14 days or until you know the results of the test.
If you need to self-isolate please email your School Office to alert them and let them know if you need any academic support in continuing your studies online
