Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update for staff and students - 19 January 2022

Dear Colleagues and Students,

As you may have seen, the Prime Minister has today announced that from Wednesday 26 January, the ‘Plan B’ measures introduced to combat the Omicron variant of COVID-19 will end. These measures include mandatory mask wearing, as well as changes to the working from home guidance.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have worked with our partners in government and public health to respond appropriately to protect the health and safety of our University community and our local neighbours, and this will remain our highest priority.

We are now taking the time to consider the impact of these changes and seeking further guidance from the Department for Education and Public Health Devon. I will write to you all with a more detailed update on Friday. In the meantime the current measures will remain in place for those coming to our campuses. You can find details of these on our COVID-19 website.

Best wishes


Mike Shore-Nye
Registrar and Secretary
