Coronavirus Physical distancing

The University's Executive Team has endorsed adherence to Scottish Government Safer Workplaces guidance and any sector guidance that is provided.

  • with regard to physical distancing, even though the law no longer requires it, the University continues to advise keeping a reasonable distance (1m) where possible from others to minimise risk – especially when indoors and in enclosed places
  • to address any concerns members of the University community might have about mixing with others as we adapt to living with COVID-19, the University participates in the Scottish Government’s Distance Aware Scheme. Distance Aware badges and lanyards will be provided for anyone who prefers others to take extra care around them, for any reason
  • with regard to face coverings, the University strongly encourages the use of face coverings indoors where there are significant numbers of people present, particularly where it may be difficult to keep a reasonable distance
