Covid 19 update Monday 11 May - no change to campus lockdown arrangements

Dear colleagues,

I hope you have all had a good and restful weekend and managed to enjoy some of the sunshine.

You may have read reports over the weekend, or indeed watched the Prime Minister's televised address to the nation, about the stages for easing lockdown restrictions. Among the measures announced was a recommendation that some workers should return to work today.

I am writing to inform you that the University of York will continue with the working arrangements we introduced at the start of the lockdown period. There will be no changes to these arrangements until we have received much greater levels of information from the Government.

So to be absolutely clear, if you are not a member of staff who has previously been identified as an essential worker, please do not return to campus. Please continue to operate as you were until further notice. Our priority, as always, is the health and wellbeing of our staff and students.

Best wishes


Professor Charlie Jeffery
