Students in study areaDue 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.

Unless you are exempt, face coverings are mandatory in all areas accessible to the public, this includes all foyers, reception areas, shops, libraries, corridors, stairways, lifts, conveniences and where 2m social distancing cannot be maintained.

Our Face Covering Information Sheet provides detailed information on the University expectations with regards to the wearing of face coverings.

If a student or member of staff has a medical condition or disability and is exempt from wearing a face covering or mask, they can choose to wear a sunflower lanyard, carry an exemption card or download a digital exemption on to a mobile phone, and not feel anxious about being challenged for not wearing a face covering.

We are continuously adding to our student FAQs so please visit our web pages for the latest guidance.
