The safety of our visitors, staff and students is our priority. Here's what we're doing to help keep everyone safe, and what you can do to help. We ask that everyone is respectful of others’ choices, understanding that some people will feel more comfortable with the lifting of restrictions than others and that health vulnerabilities remain.



We continue to ask staff and visitors to a wear a face covering if they can when inside our buildings. Read our list of exemptions. Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue. If no tissue is available, use your elbow.


The number of visitors permitted in our spaces has been reduced. Although it is no longer mandatory, we ask that visitors give people space where it is sensible or requested.


Please do not visit Lakeside if you or anyone you live with is feeling unwell or have a loss of smell, temperature, consistent cough or loss of taste.
