Coronavirus Safety @ LUU

A message from the LUU Exec: Our response to today’s Government communication

You will have seen a letter from Michelle Donelan MP, the Minister of State for Universities (downloadable here) outlining the impact of the new lockdown restrictions on students and universities, and reinforcing the Government’s requirement for students to remain in their current student homes until the end of term.

With this semester delivered primarily through online teaching, some of our students might have considered returning home before the end of today (Wednesday 4 November) to spend a prolonged winter break at home. Today’s communication from the Government and the University of Leeds specifically asks that you do not do so.

We do not underestimate the impact that a second lockdown may have on your mental wellbeing. However we recognise that we must all play our part in fighting Covid-19.
