We understand you may have concerns about the Wuhan Novel Coronavirus and therefore this post provides updated guidance for all students, but in particular those who may have returned from China.
As a precaution, Public Health England advises that anyone who has returned to the UK from Wuhan should keep themselves isolated for a period of 14 days from the date of leaving China, even if they do not display any symptoms.
We are therefore asking any students who have recently returned from Wuhan to follow this advice. This means remaining in your accommodation and limiting your contact with others.
If you are affected by this and have concerns, please contact Central Welfare and Guidance on 0114 222 4321 or firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have returned from Wuhan or an affected area in the last 14 days and develop respiratory symptoms, you should continue to isolate yourself and call the free medical helpline NHS 111 (dial 111), mentioning your recent travel to the city.
To avoid the possible spread of the virus, you should not go to seek medical advice in person. The NHS will advise you what to do next.

We understand that this might be a difficult time for some students, who may be worried about friends and family members in China.
