COVID-19 safety guidance following government announcement

21 Jan 2022

Guidance for staff following government Plan A announcement


On Wednesday 19 January, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson confirmed that most Plan B measures introduced in December will expire on 26 January

For the duration of the exam period (running until 28 January), our safety control measures for on-campus examinations will remain in place. Students must:

  • continue to wear a face covering during in-person exams unless they have an exemption approved by Occupational Health or the Disability Advice and Support Service. 
  • continue to take a Lateral Flow Test within the 24-hour period before coming on-campus for an examination. 

We are currently reviewing the new Department for Education guidance and discussing our COVID-secure measures with Manchester’s Director of Public Health, David Regan.

We will update you by the end of next week.
