Find out the Government's plan for easing lockdown in England.
Published Tuesday, 23rd February, 2021 in University news
On Monday 22nd February, the Government announced the roadmap for easing lockdown restrictions in England.
What this means for City
In line with the Government guidance, we will be looking at the possibility of some students returning to campus for practice-based modules or to use specialist equipment and facilities after 8th March. Your School will be in contact if this applies to you.
In mid-April, the Government will be reviewing whether students on other courses might be able to return for particular activities. Once a decision is made, they will provide universities with a week’s notice. We will continue to update you with further information once it is available.
Roadmap for easing lockdown restrictions
The roadmap contains four steps where different restrictions will be eased, starting on 8th March. Each step will be assessed against four tests before the restrictions ease to assess the impact of the step.
In Step One (from 8th March) the Stay at Home requirement will remain, but people can leave home for recreation outdoors such as a coffee or picnic with their household or support bubble, or with one person outside their household.
You can find further information about Step One and the full roadmap on the Government website.
What to do if you are on campus
If you are returning to campus for in-person teaching, to use specialist equipment or to access study spaces, please ensure you read our health and safety guidance.
