I am isolating, who do I need to tell?

There are several reasons why you may be self-isolating:

  • You may have symptoms of Covid-19 and be waiting to take a test or find out your results
  • You may have had a positive Covid-19 diagnosis
  • You may live with or have been in close contact with someone who is symptomatic or had a positive test result

Please follow these steps to ensure we are able to provide you with appropriate support.

You need to complete the Connect and Protect form.

If you are isolating whilst you await a test result or, if you have tested positive, you need to complete the Academic Self-Isolation Notification form.

This will be shared with your School so that digital attendance registers are updated.

If your isolation end date has changed following the result of your test and you have already filled in the Self-Isolation form, you will need to update your form with your new isolation end date.

Complete the form

When you receive your test result, you must notify us whether it is positive or negative.
