Fundamental steps to reduce the risk of transmission of Covid-19 on campus
Do not visit any campus building if experiencing any of the main symptoms of Covid-19 i.e.
- High temperature,
- New and persistent cough,
- Loss of sense of smell or taste
Follow the NHS Covid-19 guidance.
Observe good hand washing and hygiene practices. Where soap and water are not available, hand sanitiser should be used.
Mechanical ventilation systems including supply air/extract air and toilet extract within our buildings have been set to run 24/7 ensuring that we are flushing the rooms with as much air as possible to reduce the risk of airborne transmission. All Informatics’ spaces have been checked to confirm there is adequate ventilation; rooms that do not meet the University standards are out of use.
Guidance on the University’s approach to ventilation
All occupants are encouraged to open windows, vents and doors to their workspaces where they can, to encourage airflow – however, please close these if you are the last to leave the room for security reasons.
There are no mandated physical distancing requirements; however, distancing is encouraged and meeting and event planners should consider setting up the space to continue to allow for voluntary distancing.
Be respectful and use your best judgement; respect those who ask you to keep your distance from them, which they may indicate verbally or by wearing a Distance Aware badge. The Distance Aware scheme is a voluntary initiative to help anyone who feels worried about mixing with others as we adapt to living with COVID-19 – details of this scheme are available by visiting the link below.
If you are staff/PGR student with access to Cardinus, you must complete the Fire Safety module in the Cardinus training hub. Enter your UUN and password to access the system and click the relevant tile to begin the course.
Once completed, download your certificate so you can include this in your access request to Facilities to verify completion.
