Keighley College is open and we’re following government COVID-19 advice
Our college campus remains open from Thursday 5 November following government COVID-19 advice and restrictions. This means our students can continue their education as they build their knowledge and skills for the future.
We’ve fitted additional hand sanitiser stations throughout our campuses, so you can keep your hands clean. In every classroom, there are also cleaning packs to wipe down shared equipment before and after use.
We’re asking everyone to wear a face covering (unless they’re unable to) and to keep 2 metres apart. We’re encouraging everyone to be kind and supportive to each other too.
To keep us all safe, we have a successful student group system in place throughout our college. When positive COVID-19 cases have been identified, these groups are closed for 14 days and the members stay at home. Thanks to everyone’s support, this has been a real success and it’s allowed us to remain open continuously since September.
We can all help to reduce the COVID-19 infection rate by:
- Limiting the number of people from outside our households we come into contact with
- Making space and staying 2m from people outside our households or support bubble
- Washing hands regularly and for 20 seconds
- Covering faces in enclosed spaces
- Isolating when advised to
Please self-isolate if:
· You’ve had a test and are waiting to hear your result.
· Someone you live with has symptoms or a positive result.
If your result is positive and confirms you have Covid-19, please continue self-isolating for at least 10 days. Let your tutor know straight away and stay at home to keep our communities safe. Do not come to college, unless you have a negative test result. Please get the rest and support you need to recover.
Our NHS services are extremely busy at this time and it’s important that anyone who experiences any of the main symptoms of COVID-19 stays at home. These symptoms include a new, continuous cough, high temperature, loss or change to your sense of taste or smell.
