Covid-19 reporting (staff)
Guidance for staff who are required to self-isolating and/or have tested positive for Covid-19.
If you (or someone you line manage) need to self-isolate, please contact the University:
You will also need to contact your manager and let them know that you are self-isolating.
PLEASE NOTE: If you have informed the University that you are self-isolating and then subsequently test positive for Covid-19, you will need to resubmit this form and let us know about the positive test.
Once you have completed your self-isolation or are no longer required to self-isolate due to being fully vaccinated and receiving a negative Covid-19 PCR test, please let us know by completing the form below:
You will need to self-isolate if:
- You have symptoms of Covid-19 or a member of your household has symptoms or has tested positive; or
- You have been contacted by the NHS Test and Protect team and identified as a close contact of someone who has tested positive for Covid-19 symptoms; or
- You have travelled to Scotland from a country which is not exempt from quarantine requirements (a list of certain exempt countries which can be found on the Scottish Government website).
Further guidance on self-isolation (including on when you can end self-isolation), Test and Protect and the Protect Scotland app can be found in our management of cases of Covid-19 pages.
