Staff and students in higher education are no longer expected to take part in regular asymptomatic testing, and should follow asymptomatic screening advice for the general population. Current UK Government policy on lateral flow testing is available from the NHS website. It states that regular lateral flow testing is now recommended only for certain groups.

We strongly encourage anyone who tests positive using a lateral-flow test to self-isolate for 10 days from their positive result. Students should inform their College to obtain help in self-isolating. 

If you have questions, you can email the University's Communicable Diseases helpdesk.
