Library - optional face covering exemption cards now available
Following feedback from students, The Library have introduced laminated face covering exemption cards. They are simply the exemption cards provided by the Government at gov.uk and have been printed off and laminated ready for use.
Students can pick up a card from the Library Welcome Point or Helpdesk. No proof of exemption will be required. The cards are theirs to keep - please do not hand them back. If you place the card visibly on the desk, the top corners are the best, and staff patrolling Library areas will not approach you regarding wearing a face covering. This new process is completely optional, the Library does not enforce students to have to display a card. The Library are trialling this approach due to the high staff turnover and rotas at Library sites, therefore students may have been approached multiple times throughout their study period regarding face covering. This new approach gives an option for a student to signal they are exempt without having to interact staff repeatedly.
