Covid-19 cases and precautions at Bath University

We have received this from Bath University

Dear local residents,

I hope this message finds you well.

As you know, we have some cases of Covid-19 amongst our University community. We have received a few queries from local residents wanting more information.

As you’d expect, we are taking this situation very seriously and we’re holding daily meetings both to monitor the situation and implement all the actions needed to support our University community.

Now that advice from public health officials has evolved, we are making the data for cases amongst staff and students available on this webpage:

www.bath.ac.uk/campaigns/daily-covid-19-statistics/

This page details new, daily reported cases amongst staff and students in Bath and also outlines our processes and guidance for self-isolation. We will be updating this page every day by midday, to be as transparent and up to date as possible in the information we are sharing. However, we will not be sharing information that may lead to individuals being identified, as I’m sure you will appreciate.

We have robust support systems in place for self-isolating households in University accommodation, including:

  • The provision of three meals and snacks every day
  • A central hub of support for any other needs such as food and medicine or access to technology, staffed 24/7
  • Laundry services
  • Additional virtual exercise classes being provided by Team Bath
  • Wellbeing support in place for those who need it.

This should enable students to self-isolate comfortably for 14 days, and we are being very clear about the gravity of the situation and the need to follow self-isolation rules. I am pleased to report that self-isolating students have been very responsible to date.

I do hope this is helpful.

Best wishes,

Professor Bernie Morley

Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Provost
