Latest COVID guidance

Adjustments we have made following guidance from Public Health England

As always, safety is paramount at the ESO and we have been working tirelessly to ensure our ‘Covid Secure’ policy meets and exceeds government guidance. Following updated guidance from Public Health England we have reviewed our policy. This now includes:

  • If you are feeling unwell or have symptoms of Covid then you should not be attending the ESO Clinic
  • If a student/tutor/staff have symptoms of Covid and test positive, they can only return to the ESO Clinic when they have two negative tests from day 5, that are 24 hours apart, unless they reach day 10 and are symptom free
  • PPE – gloves, apron and masks will be used on a risk assessment basis. If you are more comfortable wearing a mask then please do and you can also request that your student and/or tutor also wears a mask
  • When you arrive, you can enter either building and no longer need to ring the bell and wait for entry
  • You will not have your temperature taken when you come in
  • We would like everyone to continue to use the hand sanitiser provided when entering the ESO Clinic and around the clinic
