COVID 19: When to self-isolate

By sophiebk 05 Oct 2020

Any resident of University Accommodation must self-isolate for 10 days if:

  • you have any symptoms of coronavirus
  • you've tested positive for coronavirus (this means you have coronavirus)
  • you live with someone who has symptoms or tested positive
  • someone in your support bubble has symptoms or tested positive
  • you're told to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace or the NHS COVID-19 app

If you are an International student self-isolating on arrival to England please click here.

The main symptoms of coronavirus are a high temperature; a new, continuous cough; a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste. Most people with coronavirus have at least 1 of these symptoms.

Once you are self-isolating:

  • If you have symptoms you should book a test for coronavirus via the University testing facility by following the steps on the University website which can be found here. 
  • You should inform the University via the Student Intranet as soon as you are self-isolating.
  • Please also inform your Hall Reception of when you are self-isolating and why. Their contact details are here. They will then contact you with exact guidance and ensure that you are supported in terms of your well-being, food, medical supplies and washing/cleaning arrangements etc.
