Rapid lateral flow tests
Before visiting Greenlands you are encouraged to take a rapid lateral flow test, preferably on the day, or the day before your visit. You are then encouraged to undertake regular tests (the University advises two per week, three days apart) when on campus. You can arrange this in a number of ways including ordering a home test kit or visiting a local rapid flow test site.
What if I have concerns about the arrangements or other people’s behaviour on my health?
If you do not feel the arrangements in place are suitable to protect your health you should speak to a relevant member of staff, for example, your course tutor, the programme administrator or reception staff. If your concerns are not alleviated or they are unable to help you, they will escalate it accordingly.
How will the guidance be enforced if a participant fails to comply?
Our health and safety measures are in place not just to protect you but all members of our community, including those who are most vulnerable to COVID-19. It is essential that students and members of staff can safely study and work alongside one another.
We will take all breaches of guidance seriously and where necessary we will take disciplinary or other appropriate action under the terms of a participant’s agreement with us.
How will I know if changes in guidance or social distancing requirements affect my programme?
Any changes that impact the arrangements for your programme will be notified to you by email.
What if I have signed up to a programme and can no longer attend prior to it commencing?
Please contact the relevant member of staff, such as a programme administrator or your account manager, as soon as possible to discuss your options.
What if I have symptoms or a positive test?
You should stay at home and not travel to campus if you have symptoms of coronavirus, if you have received a positive test result, or if you need to self-isolate for other reasons (for example, because you have been advised to by NHS Test & Trace or because someone else you live with has symptoms).
If you find yourself in this situation, you should report your absence to your programme administrator and we will discuss your options with you.
If you receive a positive test result for COVID-19 you must:
- follow all government advice to self-isolate
- follow all instructions from the NHS and engage with the Test and Trace system
- notify the University using this online form
What should I do if I develop symptoms whilst staying at Henley?
If you develop COVID-19 symptoms and are staying at Greenlands, please return to your room immediately and call NHS 111. Once you have their guidance please dial 0 to speak to reception to inform them, so they can escalate the situation if required and arrange any appropriate support.
Are there any specific arrangements for my programme?
Detailed joining instructions will be sent before the start of your programme giving arrangements for arrival and dining.
