This weekend Sheffield is set to welcome back students for both the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University.
The city of Sheffield is looking forward to welcoming back students to our world-famous Universities, there really is a buzz in the city when they’re here.
I’m encouraging them to also support the wider community and to work with us to ensure that we keep the virus under control. If you have symptoms or have recently tested positive for Covid, then please do not travel and isolate at home. If you’ve not been vaccinated, then book in and get your vaccination as soon as possible and continue to wear masks and wash your hands regularly.
Both Universities have been working hard and have put measures in place to ensure that both staff and students are as safe as possible. They’re asking them to, where possible, ensure that they are double vaccinated before they arrive on campus and to regularly test themselves each week. Testing sites have been set up on the university campuses and testing kits are available free of charge.
It’s great to see that young people will once again return to face-to-face teaching and this year will get the full university experience, socialising with new friends and making the most of our great city.
Only by working together can we stop the spread of the virus.
