    Mass Covid-19 Testing

      The university should be testing all students for Covid-19, not just symptomatic students. As seen by Northumbria University, 770 cases were found using mass testing however only 78 were symptomatic. People are still able to spread the virus when asymptomatic so to effectively control the virus on campus and in the community, all students must be offered a free Covid-19 test.

    5pm on 15 Oct 20 This would be a great idea and fully support It. but I can see two possible issues, on top of the obvious logistical issue. one would be how to encourage students to take the tests, would these be mandatory tests for students? or voluntary? two, students could become bolder after negative results, with the mentality of 'I tested negative so I can do anything now'. what I would like to see is the temperature machines you see in restaurants located around campus, this could be a viable addition to any testing scheme for when students take part in F2F lectures with immediate results compared to testing.
