What to do if you have symptoms or asked to self-isolate

If you are feeling ill, you must not come to work. If you become ill onsite you must inform your line manager/supervisor immediately and return home.

If you develop symptoms related to Covid-19, please follow the guidelines set by the government, and take the following steps:

  1. Contact the national Test and Trace Service.
  2. Use the ‘Connect to Protect’ tool to confidentially inform UCL.
  3. Inform your line manager or supervisor. This information will be taken in confidence.
  4. Self-isolate in line with NHS guidanceNote that those who have had two doses of vaccine are now exempt from isolation. We do recommend that where you have been identified as a close contact that you still take a PCR or lateral test to check your covid status before coming on site, irrespective of vaccination status.  

Please also notify your manager/supervisor and use the ‘Connect to Protect’ tool to report:

  • if you have been required by NHS test and trace to self-isolate due to contact with potentially infected individuals.
  • if after testing you subsequently receive a positive result.

UCL is also providing a local Covid-19 testing service for students and staff. Please see the UCL coronavirus testing website for more information.
