The Government have recommended that all students and staff should test at home either the evening or morning before they return to the College in January before continuing with twice-weekly at home testing.
The Prime Minister announced on 27 November the temporary introduction of new measures as a result of the Omicron variant. These measures are precautionary, while the variant is tracked and assessed.
In light of the latest Government guidance to Schools and Colleges, we are, with immediate effect, requiring all staff, students and visitors to wear face coverings when moving around College premises, outside of classrooms or indoor teaching areas, such as in corridors and communal areas.
We continue to encourage staff and students who are eligible to get vaccinated against COVID-19 and to test themselves at least twice a week. Lateral flow testing kits are available from the College reception.
