Back to campus
Activity is gradually returning to both our Loughborough and London campuses. We are working in a carefully managed way to put in place a range of measures and procedures to minimise the risk to everyone in our community.
For many members of staff, next academic year will involve a fusion of home working and on campus activity. We therefore all need to be familiar and comfortable with arrangements on our campuses.
What if I have symptoms of Covid-19
If you have symptoms of Covid-19, you should self-isolate in line with the NHS guidance. Your housemates will also need to self-isolate too as outlined by the NHS.
The main symptoms of Covid-19 are a high temperature, a new, continuous cough and a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
If you have any of the main symptoms, you should get a test to confirm whether you have Covid-19 and inform the University though Connect and Protect.
NHS Test and Trace app
Test and Trace is a national app that is helping the NHS to understand where and how quickly the Covid-19 virus is spreading, so that it can respond quickly and effectively.
The app allows you to report symptoms and order a Covid-19 test.
It also helps to trace app users who have spent time near other app users who later test positive for Covid-19.
Some venues in England – including pubs, bars, restaurants and cafes – are now legally required to record who is visiting there to support the test and trace effort. These venues will all display a QR code, which allows anyone who has the Test and Trace app to easily register their visit. Test and Trace QR codes are located in relevant buildings on campus.
To download the app, search for NHSCOVID-19 in the App Store or Google Play Store.
