The health and safety of our College community remains a top priority and we are changing our approach to face coverings as a result of Government guidance. We have worked hard to keep campus open with in person teaching this term - Let’s do this simple thing to help stop the spread of Covid-19.

From Tuesday 30 November, we expect face coverings to be worn by students, staff and visitors over the age of 12 years old while indoors, including libraries, teaching rooms, lecture halls, laboratories and multiple-occupancy offices. 

Relevant departments will be aware of exceptions in academic environments, such as music, performance and some laboratory work, where other guidance applies.

Face coverings help protect the wearer and others against the spread of infection because they cover the nose and mouth, which are the main confirmed sources of transmission of Covid-19.

Students and staff who are unable to wear a face covering are expected to wear a sunflower lanyard (available from the SU Shop, Café on the Square, School Offices or Student Services).

Face coverings do not need to be worn when outdoors. 

To help to keep our community safe, we all need to continue to play our part.
