Latest guidance

The government has removed remaining domestic restrictions in England but if you have symptoms of a respiratory infection, such as COVID-19, and you have a high temperature or do not feel well enough to come to College or carry out normal activities, you are advised to try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people. We would suggest 5 days including the weekend as a guide, but this is down to individual circumstances and choice. The latest Government guidance can be found here. For the current local guidance visit the Wakefield Council website here.

There are also some simple things you can do in your daily life that will help reduce the spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory infections and protect those at highest risk. Things you can choose to do are:

  • Get vaccinated.
  • Let fresh air in if meeting others indoors.
  • Practise good hygiene:
    • - wash your hands
      - cover your coughs and sneezes
      - clean your surroundings frequently
  • Wear a face covering or a face mask.
  • Face coverings and face masks can help reduce the chance of you spreading infection to others, especially in crowded and enclosed spaces, and may protect you from becoming infected by some respiratory viruses.
