The COVID-19 emergency requires all of us to work together in the national interest to protect the health and safety of everyone, jobs and our maritime economy. UKSA takes the safety of our teams, students and visitors seriously and will continue to follow government guidelines regarding COVID-19 prevention and testing. As a result; this policy may be subject to change at short notice. Updates will be communicated by UKSA as ‘All Staff’ e-communication. It is everyone’s responsibility to abide by this policy as well as related Procedures/Risk Assessments.
In order to maintain the safest possible environment for staff and students, UKSA will implement a comprehensive testing programme from the date of reopening (1 March 2021) until further notice. We hope that this programme will become unnecessary as the effects of the UK vaccination programme take effect, but we expect the programme to last the whole of March and into April at least.
