Coronavirus (COVID-19) Guidance

Over the past number of months, we have all had to adapt to a new way of working. The University is now planning for a phased return to the campus over what is likely to be a prolonged period. Our guiding principle in planning a return is to safeguard the health and wellbeing of our staff and students.

The University recognises that some staff may be anxious about returning to work on campus. However, a number of protective measures have been put in place to assure the health and safety of everyone at Queen's in line with Public Health guidance on physical distancing, hand hygiene, and controlling the potential spread of COVID-19.  These measures should be considered by local management when completing risk assessments for returning to the office, running events, teaching activities etc.

The following guidance has been produced to aid local areas with planning for their return to work on campus:
