Government Guidelines for Coronavirus
The government advises that capacity on public transport remains limited given the requirements for social distancing. This will be particularly challenging for students who travel to college via public transport.
As such, students are advised to walk or cycle to college where possible. Where this is not an option, we would like to reiterate the importance of wearing a face covering on public transport for the duration of the journey, whilst observing social distancing guidelines. Additionally, as confined spaces and limited ventilation on public transport can pose a risk to passengers, windows should also be kept open at all times to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
The current government guidance states that anyone who has coronavirus symptoms such as a new continuous cough, a high temperature, a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell, should stay at home. Thus, we urge all parents, guardians and carers to adhere to government guidelines and follow best practices by keeping their child at home if they are displaying symptoms, in an attempt to reduce the risk of transmission. We thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
