New government guidance

The government has removed remaining domestic restrictions in England and you are no longer required to test if you have symptoms.  Although you can no longer get free PCR tests there are still packs of LFD test kits available at the University (see below).

You are no longer legally required to self-isolate if you have symptoms or test positive for COVID-19. We do, however, ask you to stay at home if you can and avoid contact with other people. Please remember that there are others in the University community, both staff and students, who are at greater risk from the virus and may become very unwell if they catch it.

You are no longer legally required to self-isolate following contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.

Households (including Halls accommodation) no longer need to isolate if another member has tested positive.

See the latest guidance here: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus.


 

Reporting COVID-19 test results

We are still asking staff and students to let the University know if they have Covid-19.

Students please Follow this link for the reporting form: University Online Covid-19 Report Form or email Covidreport@chi.ac.uk.

Staff please tell you line manager and HR (Cecile Mould - Cecile.Mould@chi.ac.uk).


 

What can I do to help keep myself and other safe? 

There are still steps you can take to reduce the risk of catching and spreading COVID-19:

  • Get vaccinated

  • Let fresh air in if meeting indoors, or meet outside

  • Consider wearing a face covering in crowded, enclosed spaces

    I’m feeling unwell, what do I do? 

    If you have any of the COVID-19 symptoms (please see the latest list COVID-19 symptoms in adults)

    1. Please stay at home as you can infect other people for at least 5 days from when your symptoms start.  Please remember that there are others in the University community, both staff and students, who are at greater risk from the virus and may become very unwell if they catch it.
    2. Please notify the University on the reporting form on this link: Covid-19 Report form
    3. Try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until you are better.
    4. See the NHS advice on staying at home and looking after yourself on this link: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/self-isolation-and-treatment/

    If you are not sure phone 111 for guidance.
