Your health and safety is paramount. Across campus and halls of residences we have introduced enhanced health and safety measures. Where appropriate it is likely that we will go beyond government guidance, based on scientific advice and the expertise of our academic faculty.
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, everyone on campus must adhere to the following requirements:
Testing: Staff, students and visitors coming to LSE buildings must be tested regularly, with evidence of a valid negative COVID test taken within the last 4 days. At present, this is also required for those who have received both vaccinations
More information on testing and booking
Mask wearing: Masks must be worn in all lifts on campus and for teaching and learning activities during the Summer School period (until 20 August), unless they are exempt from doing so for medical or disability related reasons.
We strongly encourage all staff, students and visitors to wear masks in all LSE buildings, especially in high-traffic or ocnfined areas, for the safety of our community.
Social Distancing: Until 20 August, we will require social distancing in classrooms, where Summer School and Executive programmes are taking place. We also encourage everyone on campus to maintain a respectful distance from others when possible to help minimise the risk of asympromatic spreading of the virus.
Self-Monitoring: Anyone coming to campus must self-monitor for symptoms and stay at home if they have potentially been exposed to COVID-19 or have had any symptoms over the past two weeks. Anyone with symptoms should self-isolate and get tested for coronavirus. For further guidance on symptoms and related matters please see this NHS page.
Track and Trace: We ask that you use our LSE Trace system to enable us to look after your health, safety and wellbeing, as well as that of other members of our community.
COVID-19 Reporting: If you test positive for COVID-19 you must self-isolate as per the NHS guidance and inform the School via our LSE trace system as soon as possible.
