After Friday 18 February, staff and students will no longer be able to collect free testing kits on campus.
This decision has been made by the Department of Health and Social Care who have ended the agreement which allows us to distribute free testing kits. We have therefore been advised that we must not distribute lateral flow testing kits after Friday 18 February.
You can continue to collect lateral flow testing kits from catering outlets across campus until the end of this week.
Whilst we have been encouraging staff and students to test twice-weekly, we recognise that without access to free testing kits this may no longer be possible. If you do have testing kits available to you, we would recommend you to continue to test twice weekly to help minimise the transmission of COVID-19 on campus.
