Due to the emergence of the new Omicron Covid-19 variant, Welsh Government have introduced additional measures for safety.
All staff and students should now wear face coverings while indoors in learning and teaching environments, unless exempt. Including:
- When working as part of a defined contact group in teaching laboratories, clinical settings and workshops, where activity risk assessments permit.
- When moving around a space such as an open plan office or catering venue. When 2m social distancing cannot be maintained (unless it has been identified in a risk assessment that this would be unsafe).
- Where identified on a risk assessment as an appropriate control measure.
- When requested, where there are clinically extremely vulnerable students or staff or those who are at increased risk from COVID-19, including those who were previously shielding.
Please see our full guidance document on face coverings for more information.
Thank you for your cooperation in keeping the University a safe space for all.
