COVID-19 Updates

Last updated:  20/09/21

The First Minister announced that Scotland, as of the 9th August 2021, will move ‘beyond Level 0’. While the College welcomes this move, it is agreed that some of the previous Covid-19 mitigations and safety measures practices, will remain in place. This is to ensure the safety of all staff, students, and visitors of the College.

To that end, we will continue to encourage:

  • Social distancing of at least 1m between all students staff and visitors wherever possible
  • Face coverings are to continue being worn by all students, staff and visitors while moving around the College building
  • Enhanced cleaning, ventilation, and hygiene measures.

Scotland Test & Protect Check-In Services are also in operation throughout the College building, and all staff, students & visitors are required to ‘check-in’ using the Check-In App.

Further updates regarding teaching arrangements for the Academic Year 2021/22 will be made available soon. 

We will continue to communicate on a regular basis to provide guidance and advice and to highlight any changes in our approach.

We would like to emphasise that the College will continue to operate in line with public health, UK and Scottish Government guidance. We encourage all students, staff, and surrounding community members to practice basic hygiene precautions and follow the advice given across various UK health care organisations- HPS COVID-19 website and NHS Inform.
