Over the next couple of weeks we’ll be issuing daily updates on Your DMU Safety, spotlighting a key theme each time, as well as sharing any key updates as the national situation evolves. Today, we want to remind you what you need to do if you test positive for Covid-19.
Any confirmed positive Covid-19 test must be reported to DMU via the dmu.ac.uk/dmusafetracenotify form. This is vital to ensuring we are able to respond quickly and effectively to any local outbreaks and protect others from Covid-19 infection. This will also help us provide any support you may need.
Please take a look at the process flow for students so that you know what to do.
Other key updates
We’ve been made aware that the NHS Covid-19 app does, in some instances, provide users with the following notifications which disappear shortly afterwards:
- “Possible COVID-19 exposure”
- “COVID-19 exposure logging”
- “COVID-19 exposure notifications”.
This is not a notification by the app for you to self-isolate. These are default messages from Apple and Google and there is no need to be concerned by them. If self-isolation is required, the app will confirm the following:
- “The app has detected that you have been in contact with someone who has coronavirus. Please stay at home and self-isolate to keep yourself and others safe.”
This message will not disappear and will be accessible within the app. More information regarding this can be found on the NHS website.
We require all staff, students and visitors to wear a face covering in all teaching spaces (including the Library) no matter the layout unless there is a legitimate medical or personal reason for exemption.
We also expect them to be worn when you move around buildings or use common spaces. You can find out more here.
