How we’re approaching Coronavirus Safety in the LUU building
People’s safety is priority in everything we do during this time.
We recommend that you come into the LUU building when you arrive on campus, to get a feeling for what your Union is like and what we offer. In the LUU building, you’ll find there will be plenty of clear signage to show you which way to go in public areas, as well as hand sanitising stations which you should use regularly.
Obviously only come into the LUU building if you feel confident enough – just know that we’d love you to come say hello.
Steps we've taken in the building
We’ve worked hard to look after the wellbeing of our people.
We’re actively promoting handwashing and hand hygiene, and we’ve added extra hand sanitising points around the Union.
We’re always rigorous about cleaning but we’ve increased deep cleaning and sanitisation of all areas.
In our shops, bars and cafés we’re making sure we do everything we can to keep people safe including social distancing measures, limiting numbers and contactless payment in all our outlets.
From 24 July and in line with Government policy, face masks or coverings must be worn to enter the Refectory and all other University catering outlets.
From 3 August staff and students must wear a face mask or covering in all indoor communal areas, for example, corridors and communal toilets. Usual places of work and / or study will be exempt from this, provided two metre social distancing is enforced, unless a local risk assessment identifies otherwise.
Washable face coverings are currently available from Security.
Whilst it is not mandatory, we encourage the use of face coverings outdoors where social distancing of at least two metres cannot be maintained.
