Here at your Students' Union we want you to be safe, reassured and kept up to date with relevant information on how this outbreak may impact your studies and everyday actvities. We're working with our University to closely monitor the developing situation and follwing the expert guidance issued by the World Health Organisation (WHO), Public Health England (PHE) and the UK Government.

Here at your SU we are sure that you are worried by the current outbreak of Coronavirus and the impact that the virus may have on your studies, your employment and your everyday life. It's only natural to be anxious. But you must not forget that COVID-19, though serious, affects most individuals no more than the common flu.

Instead of focusing upon not catching the virus, we should all focus on limiting it's spread to support the most vulnerable in our community. You can do this by following the basic prevention measures given out by the NHS and by looking out for each other. These simply measures can help us and others to continue with their everyday lives unaffected.

In the meantime, here at your Students' Union, we'll work to keep our services operating as usual and we'll keep you up to date with any changes via these pages and our newsletters.

We're here for you, as always.

So, keep this in mind and let's stay #ProudtobeStaffs.
