Wellbeing

Return to Campus: A Framework 

We have reached a turning point in our response to the pandemic and are now moving into a new phase which will see the transition back to campus of significant numbers of staff who have been working from home. This is an important step for the University and one which will be carefully managed. Our plans have been developed in accordance with the NI Executive’s ‘Pathway to Recovery’ and with the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff and students as our first priority.

To provide reassurance and clarity on our approach, we have produced a Framework to support a safe return to campus. Developed in consultation with representatives from the Faculties and Professional Services, this Framework provides a roadmap to enable staff to return to campus using a phased approach.

 Return to campus

Face coverings

Following the recent announcement by the Northern Ireland Executive, it will be mandatory at Queen's from Monday 10 August to wear a face covering "in any indoor public space where it is not possible to maintain social distancing”. This will be applied in relevant parts of University buildings and it is essential for the safety of the whole University community that this is adhered to by staff and students.

This is a rapidly changing and fluid situation so please be aware that the University’s position may change over time to reflect changes to guidance from the NI Executive and Public Health Agency. Please continue to check your University email, University FAQ pages and social media channels for updates.

It is important to emphasise that the wearing of a face covering does not reduce the importance of hand washing, good personal hygiene and social distancing, all of which are recognised as the most effective way of avoiding COVID-19.
