Covid-19 Guidance Update – February 2022
Posted on 21/02/22
Though we have been told that we have to live with Covid-19, here at DGHE we will continue to try to live with it safely.
With recent discussion and changes to government guidance regarding Covid, I am sure that you are curious about what will be happening at DGHE. For your safety, we have decided to keep things pretty much the same for the remainder of this term (through until Easter). We will review the situation again before the summer term starts.
We will continue to ask our students, staff and visitors to wear face-coverings when indoors and close to others unless they are exempt. There was a rise in numbers across the city in January and we want to make sure that we all remain safe.
Last week the government announced that all Covid rules in England, including the requirement to isolate after testing positive, are due to end on 24 February. However, any staff or student who has symptoms is urged to stay at home and take a lateral flow test. If you do feel unwell and are unable to make your classes you must provide proof as you would with any other illness. Once testing positive and notifying the NHS track and trace simply provide a screen capture of the text sent to you by the NHS.
We will continue to provide free lateral flow tests to staff and students while supplies last. Just ask at the first-floor reception. You can also order online.
We also encourage our staff and students to get vaccinated to protect themselves and others from infection. It’s important that you get your first and second dose and booster jab for maximum protection. For more information please look here.
Thank you once again for your support and diligence.
