Get your COVID self-test kits now

Don’t forget to test yourself for COVID before coming back to College

We hope you have enjoyed your East­er Break and have man­aged to take advan­tage of the eas­ing of some of the lock­down rules to meet fam­i­ly and friends. I’m sure you will also be think­ing about com­ing back to Col­lege to start the new term.

Before you come back in we would like you to test your­self for COVID-19. You should test your­self either the night before you come back to Col­lege or the morn­ing of your first day back.

You should only come to Col­lege if you test negative.

If you col­lect­ed a test kit at the end of last term you should have enough tests left to test your­self before you come into Col­lege. If you haven’t you can col­lect self-test kits from Recep­tion on any main cam­pus (City Hub, Adams Build­ing, High­fields, Bas­ford and High Pavement).

You can also:

If you haven’t got a test kit you can col­lect one on your first day back at Col­lege. Ide­al­ly you would take the test first thing before mix­ing with any­one else. It takes about half an hour, to get the results. If you can’t do that, please don’t wor­ry as it’s an addi­tion­al pre­cau­tion. How­ev­er, please main­tain a 2m social dis­tance and wear a mask to min­imise any risk to you, your class­mates or your teachers. 

The result of your test needs to be report­ed using the NHS Test & Trace self-report website.

If you test pos­i­tive you should let Not­ting­ham Col­lege know using the online form.

Whilst await­ing the PCR result, you and the peo­ple you live with should con­tin­ue to self-iso­late. If the PCR test is neg­a­tive, pro­vid­ed it was tak­en with­in two days of the pos­i­tive LFT, it over­rides the lat­er­al flow test and you can return to Col­lege, and you and oth­er house­hold mem­bers can stop self-isolating.

We want you, your fam­i­ly your class­mates and your teach­ers to be as safe as pos­si­ble. That’s why we want you to test your­self, before you come back into College.

Thank you for your support
