Face coverings will once again be compulsory in shops and public transport in England.

What does this mean for a UWE Bristol Student?

As always, for our larger events, you will need your COVID passport or a negative lateral flow test taken within 48 hours before the event.

Inside The Students’ Union buildings, we strongly encourage wearing a mask to help keep yourself, and our staff members safe.

In our shops, it will be mandatory to wear a face covering unless you are exempt.

You can read more on the changes and how they may affect you here.
