Covid-19: Play your part

All members of the Queen’s community, staff and students, are asked to watch each of the videos below that have been produced in collaboration with the Students’ Union. They explain what safety measures are in place on campus, remind you of the latest public health guidance and crucially, what we can all do to play our part.

As a community, we rely on each other to act responsibly and follow the guidance in these videos to protect ourselves and each other.

Each video is only 2-3 mins long so please take 15 mins of your time to ensure you know what to expect on campus and what steps you can take on an individual basis to reduce the spread of coronavirus on campus.

Once you have watched the videos, there is an online quiz so you can check that you are up to speed and know what you can do to play your part.

If you have others questions relating to the coronavirus pandemic and the University’s response, please visit the University’s FAQs page.
