Visitors Agreement *

Before attending the campus

I am aware of the University of Essex (UoE) policies and procedures in place to protect me from COVID-19 shown on the Visitor web page.

On campus

I will follow social distancing rules within the University Campus, including:

  • Within toilet facilities
  • When walking around campus
  • When queuing for food / drinks
  • When attending meetings that cannot be held on Zoom, via another remote means or outdoors

The University strongly encourages the use of face coverings indoors or in areas where social distancing cannot be maintained to continue.

Unless exempt, I will wash my hands regularly and use hand sanitiser where available:

  • After travelling on public transport
  • On arrival at the UoE and as I leave for home
  • Regularly throughout the visit to the university
  • Whenever my hands get dirty
  • After touching food, smoking or vaping
  • After using any toilet facilities
  • After touching my eyes, nose and mouth

I will not share items such as crockery, cutlery, cups or pens.

I will cough / sneeze into a tissue, which I will dispose of immediately in a waste bin and wash my hands – if a tissue is not available, I will use the crook of my elbow.

If I, or someone I live with has developed symptoms

I will leave UoE campus immediately if I develop any symptoms of COVID-19.

I will not attend UoE campus, if I develop any symptoms of COVID-19 prior to my appointment and will not come on to campus for at least 10 days from the onset of symptoms or until I am symptom free.

I will not attend the UoE campus for at least 10 days if a member of my household tests positive for COVID-19, even if I have been fully vaccinated.

I will have a negative COVID-19 rapid test prior to arriving on campus/attending a University of Essex event.

COVID-19 Screening Questionnaire for Visitors

Please could you complete this screening questionnaire. The information regarding your visit details including campus location, name, date and time of appointment will be shared with the reception team so that they are aware of your visit and will also be sent to the staff member hosting your visit so they know that you have completed the required forms.

This information will be retained securely for 21 days to allow us if necessary to contact you for test and trace purposes.
