Warwick has reviewed its Covid-19 safety measures on campus

Here’s what Term Three has in store

The University of Warwick has reviewed its approach to Covid-19 safety measures on campus, following the release of the government’s “Living with Covid-19” plan.

The uni sent out an email to students today, explaining their decision to review the measures, given the remaining legal requirements linked to Covid-19 are set to be removed on 1st April, and the high levels of vaccination amongst Warwick Students.

They firstly stated a blended teaching, learning and assessment model will continue for the rest of the academic year.

Face coverings will be “strongly advised” in teaching, learning and study spaces, but not compulsory.

Students will be strongly encouraged to stay at home if they have any Covid-19 symptoms, or if they test positive for the virus.

In terms of asymptomatic testing, the uni encouraged students to continue taking regular lateral flow tests and said they would continue to source LFT tests, and keep students updated on availability. For symptomatic testing, the Uni Test and Trace site will close at the end of March, and they will also end contact tracing via their Test and Trace service.

The email also encouraged any students who are not yet vaccinated to do so, to “help keep everyone safe on campus”.

The email, with full details of Warwick’s Term three Covid-19 measures, can be accessed here.
