COVID-19 FAQS

I SUSPECT THAT I MAY HAVE CORONAVIRUS, OR ONE OF MY NEIGHBOURS HAVE COME TO ME SAYING THAT THEY THINK THEY MAY BE INFECTED. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Stay at home if you have either:

a high temperature you feel hot to touch on your chest or back

a new, continuous cough this means youve started coughing repeatedly

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

You do not need to contact 111 to tell them youre staying at home.

Testing for coronavirus is not needed if youre staying at home.

Please let a member of the Nido residence know immediately (preferably via phone) if you have symptoms of coronavirus and need to self-isolate. We can provide you with the advice and the support you will require during this time.

How long to stay at home?

If you have symptoms, stay at home for 7 days

If you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms

If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.

Read the NHS advice about staying at home.

You can use your garden, if you have one. You can also leave the house to exercise once a day but stay at least 2 metres away from other people. 

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I HAVE AN UNDERLYING HEALTH CONDITION?

The most recent guidance on the NHS website says that the NHS will contact you from Sunday 29 March 2020 if you are at a particularly high risk of getting seriously ill with coronavirus. Youll be given specific advice about what to do.

Do not contact your GP or healthcare team at this stage wait to be contacted.

WHAT CAN I DO IF I'M FEELING ANXIOUS ABOUT CORONAVIRUS?

It is perfectly understandable that you might be anxious or worried about coronavirus and the impact it could have on your life, particularly because this might include being asked to stay at home or to avoid other people.

Mind has created a guide here focusing on staying mentally healthy in light of the current situation and we would encourage any students who feel concerned to read the information carefully.

The NHS has also issued the following advice to assist you in looking after your mental health by staying mentally and physically active during this time, such as: 

Look for ideas of exercises you can do at home   

Spend time doing things you enjoy this might include reading, cooking, other indoor hobbies or listening to the radio or watching TV programmes 

Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, drink enough water and try to avoid smoking, alcohol and drugs 

Keep your windows open to let in fresh air, get some natural sunlight if you can, or get outside into the garden (where possible) 

You can also go for a walk or exercise outdoors once a day if you stay more than 2 metres from others. 

WHAT IS THE LIKELIHOOD OF CORONAVIRUS SPREADING IN THE RESIDENCE?

The UK Government is expecting and planning for the significant spread of the virus in the population, and that means it is likely there will be cases.

When we have a case or cases at one of our properties, we will act quickly and decisively to ensure those affected receive the appropriate support, guidance, and treatment and are able to self-isolate. We will also ensure all residents are given the appropriate information and advice to manage the risks. If we or Public Health England believe you have been in contact with a known case, you will be informed, and offered the appropriate support.

HOW IS NIDO STUDENT RESPONDING TO COVID-19?

The health safety and wellbeing of our students is our top priority.

An operational and strategic response group convenes daily, headed by our CEO Brian Welsh.  We are monitoring the situation closely and proactively following healthcare and government advice from the World Health Organization, PublicHealthEngland, the NHS, and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office to help ensure we are effectively managing the implications of coronavirus and responding as necessary.

Within our residences:

We are doing our best to keep a stock of hand sanitiser for you to use in each of our buildings. As you know there is a national shortage of this currently, but we are working hard to procure this for you and our teams where it may be running out

The best way to keep hands clean is by using soap and water, which we have available for you to use. We would encourage you to wash your hands frequently

Cleaning of all common areas is taking place daily, including weekends, at an increased frequency, with a focus on entry and exit buttons, lift buttons, door handles and high football areas

Posters with up to date advice and guidance are on display

Email communication with up to date advice and guidance sent regularly and posted on residence Facebook Groups

Where we have gyms in our residences, they will be closed until further notice due to the increased risk of spread from using the equipment

The common areas in our residences will be closed until further notice 

A new visitor questionnaire and sign-in will be required to ensure our guests do not have any symptoms which may put our community at risk

We are advising our students to avoid social gatherings

We have cancelled the Nido events programme (all the events are now online via Instagram Live)

We are only running virtual tours of the residences

We are reducing contact with residents and only dealing with essential maintenance items to minimise the risk of spread

Our receptions are closed, but a member of the residence team is available on site

We are following social distancing measures, and advising our residents and teams to keep 2m apart  

We recommend residents avoid ordering items to be delivered to reception, and are available to receive parcels directly from delivery drivers 

Only two people at a time should use the Laundry room, and residents should use Laundry View in the first instance to book machines and check the status of their laundry

We strongly recommend that all of our students follow the most recent guidance from the NHS, the World Health Organization and PublicHealthEngland

SHOULD I STAY AT NIDO OR TRAVEL HOME?

On the 26th March, the UK government advised that students remaining at university should now not attempt to travel home while current travel restrictions are in place. We ask that you continue to follow all government advice, the latest of which can be found here: gov.uk/coronavirus  

CAN I STILL STAY AT NIDO?

Of course.  As you will have seen, our residence remains open and operating safely according to the latest NHS, Public Health England and government advice.  Nido continues to be your home, and our dedicated residence team are available to help support you and all our residents who continue to live with us.

WHAT IF I HAVE LEFT MY NIDO RESIDENCE?

Whilst Nido continues to be your home, we understand that due to the circumstances surrounding Covid-19 you may have decided to move out.

We will contact you directly with further information on how we are able to assist you.  Please check your email and follow the instructions outlined.  If you do not hear from us, please email the residence team.

WILL THE COMMUNAL SPACES BE OPEN?

The communal spaces are no longer accessible to students as a safety precaution following the governments stay at home advice and social distancing guidance.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO MY BELONGINGS AT NIDO?

We understand many of you have already travelled home and are now worried about the belongings youve left behind. We wanted to give you an update on the additional coverage and new benefits we have added to your contents insurance together with our partners Endsleigh Insurance to give you peace of mind about your belongings. 

We know many of you had to leave your rooms quickly & suddenly and may not have taken all your possessions with you. Endsleigh have therefore waived the un-occupancy exclusion clause of 60 days and want to reassure you that student possessions will be covered under your policy for an unlimited period of time during the policy period.  

Further to that, if you move-out early or cancel your tenancy with us, and cannot yet arrange for collection of your things, Nido will arrange to store your belongings. Cover for your belongings will still apply in storage. Thisincludes all valuables up to the limits and perils on your policy certificate. Although it is advised at the current time (March 2020) to stay put, if you can safely travel home in the coming weeks & months students will be covered by an additional benefit on their policy, namely in transit against theft for up to 500 per bag of possessions. This protection is in place anytime a student has to do this during the policy period. Cover only applies within the UK.  

CAN I STILL USE THE LAUNDRY ROOM?

The Laundry room is still available for use, however, to protect your health and safety and ensure we adhere to the latest government social distancing measures, we advise the following:

I'M AN INTERNATIONAL STUDENT - CAN I GO HOME?

On the 26th March, the UK government advised that students remaining at university should now not attempt to travel home while current travel restrictions are in place. We ask that you continue to follow all government advice, the latest of which can be found here: gov.uk/coronavirus  

I AM PLANNING TO TRAVEL OVERSEAS WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Please consult and observe the latest advice from the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) on travelling outside the UK. The current advice is to avoid non-essential travel. Countries around the globe are imposing heightened health screenings on entry or exit at their borders and many have taken the decision to suspend travel/ entry to foreign nationals.

Several airlines are taking the decision to suspend flight operations to some destinations experiencing severe outbreaks of the COVID-19 virus and due to the decrease in demand for services are beginning to reduce flight schedules and cancel flights.

We strongly advise travellers to confirm their flight status in advance of travel, to allow additional time for immigration and health screenings at airports and check the latest Foreign and Commonwealth Office entry requirements and updates for your destination.
