During the period of national lockdown (from 5 November - 2 December), in line with Government guidance, face coverings should be used in all Higher Education learning environments, providing the use of face covering does not impact teaching and learning. This includes in-person learning and teaching and University study spaces.

Exemptions for individuals

There are limited circumstances, for instance for health, age or equality reasons, where people are not able to wear face coverings.

We support the hidden disabilities sunflower lanyard as a method for you to discretely indicate that you are exempt from mask use.

If people cannot wear face coverings for these reasons, please be kind and considerate.

We understand it’s easy to have a moment where you forget these new rules. But please be prepared for others to gently remind you.
