Guidance for staff who have coronavirus symptoms or have tested positive

  • Do not come to campus if you are unwell
  • Self-isolate
  • Fill in the online form

Please ensure your contact details are up to date (log-in required) in the event we need to contact you or pass your details to NHS track and trace.

Staff have a collective responsibility, a duty of care, to follow the steps set out here. Failure to do so will place staff, students, visitors and the local community at an increased risk of infection. You are able, without fear of reprisal, to report instances, to your line manager, or health and safety or staff health and wellbeing, where you believe this document is not being complied with.

If you develop any symptoms of coronavirus or have been in close contact with someone who has symptoms, do not attend campus.

Follow Government guidance.

You must self-isolate and if you have symptoms, request a test or call 119.

If you have a pre-existing health condition, please contact your GP by phone for advice and see NHS guidance.

Steps to to take

  1. If you have tested positive, or have symptoms you must report to us by completing the online form, so that we can provide you with the best support. For those who cannot access the online form ask your line manager to complete this on your behalf.
  2. If you have been on campus, let your manager know of any other people that you have been in close contact with at work.
  3. Stay at home and follow government advice on self-isolation and if you are symptomatic get a test.
  4. If you require a period of sickness absence, inform your line manager and report your sickness on 'employee self-serve'.
  5. If unwell, do not return to work until you have recovered and have completed the required period of self-isolation. If you have not had any symptoms and have continued to work from home, notify your manager when you have completed the required self-isolation period.
