The UK’s Chief Medical Officer continues to advise that the risk to individuals in the UK remains low.
As a college, the most important action that we can take to protect against Coronavirus and other germs is to promote good hand and personal hygiene. We continue to encourage the students and staff to do the following and ask that you support this at home too. The advice is to:
- wash hands often – with soap and water or using alcohol sanitiser if handwashing facilities are not available.
- cover coughs or sneezes with a tissue, then throwing the tissue in a bin.
We are following national advice and the college is operating as normal. Should the situation change or if we are given different advice, we will communicate this to you.
If you believe you are at risk, then please contact NHS 111.
