Covid-19 Health & Safety Update
"I wanted to revisit some of the information we have sent out over recent weeks and months to ensure that you are up to date with the Covid measures we have in place to protect everyone at LUU. As guidance is released as the road map progresses we will communicate to you any changes we may need to make. At this time we are unable to confirm what the details will be around additional mitigations for events from June 21st onwards. As soon as this information is available we will of course update you using the usual communication channels. However we can assure you that at all times the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff and students is our priority."
