Following Boris Johnson’s announcement that people who test positive for Covid-19 are no longer legally required to self-isolate from Thursday onwards, the University of Warwick has provided an update.
An email sent by Student Communications Team says: “At Warwick, we will continue to strongly recommend that you self-isolate if you have symptoms of Covid-19 or test positive. This will be in place until the end of term 2.
As we’re strongly recommending that you self-isolate if you test positive or have symptoms, you will not be required to attend in-person teaching, alternative arrangements will be made for you. We have made this decision to keep you, fellow students and staff members safe.”
They then added, “It’s also important to keep following guidance around face coverings. As a reminder, this means you’re required to wear a face covering at all times in teaching, research and study spaces.”
“While it may seem like we’re taking a cautious approach, we believe continuing with these safety measure until the end of term 2 will mean you, and the rest of our community can have a safe and enjoyable experience on campus and make most of the last few weeks of term. We really appreciate your continued support.”
