With students arriving on campus, many staff are being asked to deliver instruction and demonstration ‘ on campus’ or to join a rota to deliver ‘on campus’ services. Glenside and blocks G-N Q &R at Frenchay are zoned for teaching & learning only. Rooms now have a maximum capacity to allow 2m distancing.

There will be a team of ambassadors around the campuses who will be advising people of the rules, they will also ask people to disperse where groups are congregating, they can then call for support from logistics colleagues and escalate to security where necessary. Please support these ambassadors in their role. Don’t ignore situations, call 222 or 0117 328 1222.

Remember that the most effective measures are good ventilation, keeping two meters distance and washing hands.

We’ve pulled together some of the changes that you will see and experience on campus along with advice for working spaces:
