COVID-19 Sickness and Self-Isolation

Please note that a Self Isolation Form should be completed where an individual is required to self-isolate in line with government guidance, including where;  

  • they live with someone who has symptoms or has tested positive; or
  • someone in their support bubble has symptoms or has tested positive; or
  • they have been told by NHS Test and Trace that they have been in contact with a person with coronavirus. 

 It is not intended for use in the following circumstances:

  • Coronavirus related sickness absence, which should continue to be reported using the CHRIS/62 form, using the sickness reason of “Covid-19 (Coronavirus)”. 
  • Quarantine following travel abroad to certain countries. 

In line with the University requirements, if an individual experiences symptoms of COVID-19, has a positive test result, or is self-isolating for any reason, then they must also complete the University’s online COVID Monitoring Form.

The University have a COVID Recovery SharePoint site. This site incorporates information as well as extra resources to inform and support staff about the University’s Recovery process.
