We reintroduced the requirement to wear face coverings in most indoor settings from Monday 18th October, with compliance appearing to be good. This requirement continues and communications will be sent out to all learners, should this change.
These additional measures are precautionary, hopefully short term, and intended to prevent the need for any further interventions. The requirement to wear a face covering is of course in addition to the continued need for regular testing and proper ventilation.
Please also remember to do a lateral flow test before returning to college, and continue doing this twice per week.
In line with the recent Government announcement, we would like to remind all of our learners aged 16+ that you are now eligible to receive both a first and second Covid-19 vaccination, if you wish.
You can book both your first and second Covid-19 vaccination appointments online. If you are aged 16 or 17, you should ensure that your second vaccine takes place no sooner than 12 weeks after your first vaccine.
You can book and manage your Covid-19 vaccination appointments online by clicking here. You can also change and amend your booking using this link, if needed.
If you had your first vaccine at a walk-in vaccination centre, you can book your second one online, using the link above. You will, however, need to wait at least 24 hours after your first vaccine, before you can book your second.
If you had your first vaccine via your GPs surgery, you will be contacted by the surgery when it is time to book your second vaccine.
If you cannot book appointments online, you can call 119 free of charge. You can also speak to a translator if needed.
Please see the NHS website for more information.
