A member of the college’s staff has tested positive for Coronavirus. Those who have been in contact with that person have been contacted by Test and Trace and told to self isolate for 14 days.

In accordance with our risk assessments we are deep cleaning the small number of rooms used by this member of staff and they will be closed for 48 hours.

Everyone else should come into college as normal and follow all of the procedures we’ve put in place to help keep you safe.

If you’re a student and have any concerns please contact your teacher.

Remember, if you or anyone in your household starts to display any symptoms of Covid-19:

  • A high temperature
  • A new continuous cough
  • A loss of change to your sense of smell or taste

Please don’t come into college and ensure the person with symptoms gets a free NHS test. You can choose to take the test at a test site near you or use a home test kit. Further information is available here.

If there are no available slots at a test site within 48 hours of developing symptoms, you must order a home test kit. This is a Gateshead College policy to ensure we minimise student absence wherever possible.
