College Remains Open

Wolverhampton is now in Tier 2 ‘High Alert’ restrictions under the new local Covid alert system for England.

The college remains open and lessons are continuing as normal, however to keep yourself, your family, your classmates, fellow students, tutors and other college staff safe you should abide by the government restrictions and also adhere to the on-site safety measures – such as social distancing, wearing a face covering, using hand sanitiser and following one way systems – in classrooms, corridors and other public areas on campus.

Details of all Tier 2 restrictions can be found on the City of Wolverhampton Council website  or the government website 

 

A cold, flu or covid – which one do I have?

A blocked or runny nose, a sore throat and a cough are common, especially in the winter.

But how do you know if you have coronavirus? Check your symptoms in this video.

If you have any concerns about your health you should use the NHS 111 website initially, or if you have no internet access then contact the free NHS 111 telephone helpline. Check the NHS website for the latest official advice.

The Government website is regularly updated with useful information.

You might be worried about coronavirus (also known as COVID-19) and how it could affect your life. This may include being asked to stay at home or avoid other people.

This might feel difficult or stressful. But there are lots of things you can try that could help your wellbeing.

The College is actively promoting the NHS incentive ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ to reduce the potential spread of any seasonal cold or flu.
