Shrewsbury Colleges Group has new guidance on being identified as a close contact of someone who tests positive for COVID and the wearing of face coverings within the college.

This is a new statement effective from 2pm on Friday 25 February 2022.

This new statement has been created following the updated guidance:

  • New guidance on what to do if you are identified as a close contact of someone who tests positive for COVID
  • New guidance on the wearing of face coverings within the college

General Update

Following the recent Government update on self-isolation rules for positive cases or being a close contact, the college has updated its’ guidance for students and visitors to the college.

There is no longer a legal requirement for people with coronavirus (COVID-19) infection to self-isolate, however, if you have any of the main symptoms of COVID-19 or a positive test result, the public health advice is to stay at home and avoid contact with other people.

Further details on the main symptoms and what to do if you test positive is here.

Face coverings wearing

From Monday 28 February, face coverings will be optional in corridors and other public places on all three of the college campuses.

Ongoing measures

In addition to regular spot cleaning of high touchpoint areas on all campuses, we continue to apply the “Zoono” long-lasting antimicrobial surface protection to minimise the risk of transmission from surfaces.

We also strongly encourage parents, guardians, and other visitors to take an LFD test before entering any of the college campuses.
