Students are at the heart of everything we do and their health and safety is a top priority for Loughborough College. As such, we have taken a safety-first approach throughout the COVID-19 pandemic which has helped minimise the risk of transmitting the virus on campus. 

As Covid is still in circulation, we remain vigilant and ask all staff and students to follow our golden rules: 

  • Hand sanitising – please ensure that you regularly wash/sanitise your hands. There are hand sanitisation points around the College campus; 
  •  Face coverings – these are mandatory in all indoor communal areas (unless you are exempt). They are not required in classrooms or outdoor spaces;  
  • Social distancing – we encourage everyone to give each other some personal space; 
  • Testing – please make sure that you are testing at home twice per week, ideally Monday/Thursday and report your results to the NHS: https://www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result 
  • Close contact with a confirmed case - If you are under 18 ½ or fully vaccinated, you will not be required to self-isolate if you are notified as being a close contact of someone with COVID-19. You will be advised to take a PCR test; 
  • If you have symptoms or positive lateral flow test – self isolate and book a PCR test. Contact the college team – covid@loucoll.ac.uk or call 07970 190594; 
  • If in doubt, stay out – if you feel unwell, please do not take any chances. Stay at home until you feel better and do not come onto campus.  

In addition, we have an enhanced cleaning and hygiene regime throughout campus which includes regular sanitisation of classrooms and offices.
