The department has now returned to pre-pandemic operating conditions. We no longer require the wearing of face coverings, negative Lateral Flow tests for close working, or reduced limits on room occupancy.

However, we would like to encourage everyone to continue with the careful concern for each other that we have practised during the pandemic, and to be sensitive to fellow students and staff, especially with those who feel uncomfortable or who are at increased health risk, or where there is a high concentration of people.

This should mean that we will continue to wear face coverings, open windows, and test ourselves, according to circumstances. The occasions for these, and perhaps other measures, will be for us each to judge, and to offer or discuss in a spirit of respect.

We will continue to review our position on a weekly basis and adapt to circumstances.
