Update 19/03/20 - College campuses will close for the majority of students

In line with the directive from the Government yesterday, Hertford Regional College will be closing all campuses and buildings to the majority of our students from Monday 23rd March 2020.

We ask that, in order to allow colleagues time to complete preparations that will support our students as they prepare to commence learning at home for the foreseeable future, students, other than those in the exceptions groups listed below, do not attend College on Friday 20th March 2020 and remain at home until further notice.

The exception groups are:

Vulnerable students (College staff are already in the process of contacting parents and carers)

Students whose parents/carers are key workers (as per the list that will be released by government this afternoon)

However, in line with government guidelines, if any students who qualify as exceptions are displaying the following symptoms:

A high temperature

A new continuous cough

they should not come to College and should self-isolate for a period of 7 days. Any student who lives with other people should stay at home for 14 days from the day that the first person showed symptoms.
