The email contains information on self isolation and states that “there is no reason for students to self-isolate unless:

“You have been to a category one country within the last 14 days or if you have returned from a category two country/area in the last 14 days and developed symptoms such as cough or fever or shortness of breath.”

The email also refers to their university guidance page on the illness, which can be found here.
