Have you been Covid tested this week?
Keep getting tested to get everyone back to campus.
If you are returning to campus-based activity after Easter it is really important that you take part in our regular asymptomatic testing programme. You should take a test as soon as you return to campus and then regularly, ideally twice a week.
Where possible, you are encouraged to test before they travel back to university, if community testing facilities are available to you where you are.
Why you should get tested regularly
About one in three people with coronavirus do not have symptoms but can still infect others.
Regular testing helps to stop the spread of the virus and helps us to keep the campus open for everyone. Getting tested regularly is the only way to know if you have the virus. If people test positive and self-isolate, it helps stop the virus spreading.
We are continuing to offer regular testing on campus, at the Great Hall, every Monday and Thursday throughout April.
Book your appointment
Testing facilities are also available at our Vale Village accommodation site (in the Duck & Scholar). Open every Tuesday and Friday (11.00am-6.45pm) with no appointment necessary (closed between 2.00-2.45pm)
Testing is open to everyone, it is quick and free. Students living in University-operated accommodation should also get tested regularly even if you are not using on-campus facilities.
A reminder - reporting a positive Covid test
If you do test positive for Covid-19 please ensure that you report this to the University using the reporting form soon as possible – this form should be filled in irrespective of whether you are currently accessing campus.
Reporting positive Covid-19 results quickly allows us to ensure that appropriate support is in place for any student who has tested positive, as well as allowing us to quickly identify potential close contacts.
