Corona Virus Information and Guidance

We are aware that Coronavirus cases in the UK are disrupting travel and are causing concerns in attending events or travelling. Please be reassured that your safety, health and wellbeing is our utmost priority at all times.

We are working with Public Health England who are taking the lead nationally and we are taking direction from them in all aspects of this situation. We have not had any cases of Coronavirus on our campus or in any of our communities, and we are extremely vigilant in reviewing any risks to our staff, students or visitors, and taking any action required to safeguard people on our campus.

The government is not recommending cancelling any events at this time, and our instructions are to continue business as usual. We are aware that many of you have been planning your visit to Northumbria for some time, and we do not wish to disappoint any of our visitors unnecessarily.

We have carefully reviewed this event, and have made some small precautionary changes to further reassure you and your guests. We are splitting our registration points, duplicating some of our larger presentations, and extending our central exhibition over two buildings and a much larger space.

However, in order to assist with containment of the virus we urge our visitors, especially those experiencing any symptoms of the virus, to strictly follow the latest advice of Public Health England (PHE). We are in the process of planning additional opportunities to engage with the activities in the near future.
