As the UK’s specialist health university, St George’s is co-located with the university hospital and, as such, we have a duty towards patients, as well as to staff, students and visitors.
The University wishes to continue to make efforts to reduce the risk of transmission of Covid-19 (and other viral infections) and to ensure that its staff and students are protected to the highest possible standards particularly in light of new variants of the virus.
Face masks and PPE equipment
Type II masks are no longer required in communal areas at St George’s. If you wish to wear a face mask anywhere on site, for example in open plan offices, please feel able to do so.
For some Laboratory spaces specific operating procedures will be put in place and this may include additional PPE requirements. Staff and students should ensure that they have read and adhere to the guidance for these areas.
St George’s Hospital
The Trust has issued updated guidance stating that masks are no longer required in non-patient facing areas such as laboratories and offices, corridors and other public areas.
We will keep this guidance under review.
