Advice for people with suspected or confirmed Covid
Newman University is no longer asking staff or students to report positive Covid-19 test results. The online reporting form is now closed.
Newman University is following the latest Government guidelines regarding COVID-19 https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus.
If you have a positive Covid-19 test result OR symptoms* of a respiratory infection such as COVID-19, and you have a high temperature or feel unwell, you should try to stay at home and avoid contact with others until you no longer have a high temperature or no longer feel unwell. This helps reduce the chance of passing COVID-19 on to others. Many people will no longer be infectious to others after 5 days, but you can be infectious for up to 10 days. Please follow the guidelines on this NHS website if you’ve been in close contact with someone with Coronavirus (COVID-19). If you are not sure how to access your teaching and learning remotely, please contact your course tutors or your Faculty Office for more information. Try to work from home if you can. If you are unable to work from home, talk to your line manager about options available to you.
