Someone in my kitchen group is unwell

Step 1: Your friend must get tested

Your kitchen group friend must start self-isolating immediately and book a test.

Step 2: You will see notices in your kitchen

The University will put up a notice on your kitchen door telling you that someone in your household group is self-isolating. You must not have guests or visitors back to your household during the self-isolation period.


Step 3: Self-isolation

Self-isolation for unvaccinated contacts of Covid-19 cases applies for 10 days. People who are fully vaccinated and identified as a contact of someone with Covid-19 should take an NHS rapid lateral flow test every day for 7 days. This applies to those recognised as ‘fully vaccinated’ under the UK’s travel policy. Self-isolation will only apply if a test is positive. Read the guidance.
