On Saturday the Prime Minister announced measures to restrict the spread of a new Covid-19 variant, known as Omicron.
New measures include reintroducing compulsory face coverings on public transport and in shops, an accelerated vaccine booster programme, changes to self-isolation rules, and to the UK’s travel red list. More information on the UK’s travel red list can be found on the link here.
Our priority is to keep staff and students safe, whilst protecting face-to-face teaching and our research activity. We are expecting the Government to update its guidance for universities in the coming days but in the meantime the University expects all staff and students to wear a face covering inside University buildings (unless exempt), adhere to one-way signs, sanitise hands regularly, and take twice weekly lateral flow tests. We also strongly encourage vaccination uptake among students and staff.
This means face coverings should now be worn in all University buildings, including in teaching sessions and communal spaces (stairwells, entrance lobbies and laundry rooms) within University accommodation. Staff and students who are exempt from wearing a face covering do not, of course, need to wear one and should, if asked, confirm their exemption.
University staff do not need to wear a face covering when sat at their desk but should wear one when moving around the office, or when visiting another office.
Please consider the safety of your friends and colleagues as we continue to look after our one community.

At Lincoln, we strive to make sure our student experience is engaging, supportive, and academically challenging. That is why, in response to the issues presented by the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been prioritising face-to-face teaching sessions for our new and returning students in areas where they are the most valuable, such as seminars, tutorials, workshops, and lab and practical sessions. Additional online opportunities have been introduced where they support learning and have been shown to be successful and popular with our current students.
Safety remains a key focus. We are fully prepared to adapt our plans if changes in Government guidance makes this necessary, and we will endeavour to keep current and prospective students informed.
