This page is designed to provide information and regular updates on the developing situation with the Coronavirus (also referred to as COVID-19).
Staff, students, and customers can also use this page to declare if they are self-isolating (see the form at the bottom of this page).
The current advice on self-isolation is that any member of the public who is experiencing flu-like symptoms - defined as a fever of above 37.8C or a persistent cough - should self-isolate.
If you live alone this is for 7 days. If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of Coronavirus then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days (please note this has increased from seven days).
Pregnant staff, students and apprentices should self-isolate now for 12 weeks.
Staff, students, and apprentices who are over the age of 70, or who have the following underlying health conditions should self-isolate now until further notice: high blood pressure, lung complaints, and weakened or compromised immune systems.
Anyone who has travelled to an affected area, or who has been in close contact with an infected person, is asked to self-isolate for 14 days. Find out more about affected areas HERE.
Spending 15 minutes within 2m (6ft) of someone with the virus, or having face-to-face contact, is judged as close contact and a significant risk.

Once completed a member of the College Team will be in touch to discuss further arrangements.
