Although the government has removed all restrictions in England, U3AC members are a high risk demographic group, so it is sensible to retain some precautions to reduce the risk of catching and spreading Covid.

If you feel unwell, particularly if you have a temperature and display symptoms of a respiratory infection, please do not enter the Bridge Street premises.

The use of face coverings is at your discretion. However, note that government guidance (16 June 2022) states that wearing a face covering can reduce the number of particles containing viruses that are released from the mouth and nose, and can also protect the person wearing the face covering from becoming infected by some viruses. (U3AC staff will continue to wear face coverings when moving about the building.)

These guidelines are regularly reviewed and further U3AC specific guidance will be provided before the start of the Autumn term in October.
