After we receive notification that you are isolating, we will deliver enough food to last you the time that you are waiting for your result.
If you receive a positive test result, we will deliver enough food for three meals a day to your household for the time you are isolating. These food deliveries include snacks and items to make hot drinks.
The food provided is free. Deliveries are brought to your accommodation.
When you inform Security that you are isolating, any dietary requirements should be noted at this time.
Takeaways and supermarket deliveries
You can still receive takeaway food and grocery deliveries from supermarkets whilst you are isolating.
Only one non-symptomatic or tested member of your household can collect food deliveries. They must:
- go straight to the collection point
- return immediately
- wear a face covering
- strictly follow hygiene guidance
- not go anywhere else
- not engage with other students who live outside your household
- observe social distancing of at least two metres
If you have symptoms or have been tested, ask a member of your household to collect your delivery and leave it outside the door of your room.
Very few supermarkets now deliver shopping in carrier bags. Take these with you to collect your shopping and remember to respect the safety of the delivery driver by keeping a distance and wearing a face-covering.
Let us know on your household Teams chat if you have run out of toilet paper, so we can deliver some more to the door of your household.
If you are isolating but need prescription medicine, contact the Security team on 01225 385349. We can arrange to collect your prescription medicine and deliver it to you.
