If you think you may have the symptoms of Covid-19 (a new continuous cough, high temperature or a change in taste and smell) you should:

  1. contact us at support@digstudent.co.uk. It is vital that you do this so that we can offer you the support that you need and so that we can protect staff and students who may be vulnerable or at risk. 
  2.  Get a test to check if you have coronavirus as soon as possible. 
  3.  You and anyone you live with should stay at home and not have visitors until you get your test result - only leave your home to have a test.

After you have notified your site team, we would recommend that you let your flat mates know that you are self-isolating. We will also send your flat mates an email in case you have not had the opportunity to let them know.

Finally – try not to panic! For most people Coronavirus is just a mild illness, and whilst we can appreciate that it is worrying and that it will be difficult to stay in your room for 10 days, we will be here to support you every step of the way. If you are worried that your symptoms are getting worse then please call 111 or use the online Coronavirus service

If you are feeling anxious during self-isolation, then please get in touch with us so that we can signpost you to the necessary support services.
