For 2021/22 the Institute is planning to provide an on-campus college experience and students can expect a return to traditional learning activities similar to pre-Covid times. Students may in addition have some virtual elements in their course delivery.
Public health guidance has changed from today with respect to mandatory compliance with certain Covid measures. However Covid is still present in society and the responsibility to safeguard yourself and others is now a personal responsibility and a matter for individuals and their own circumstances. In that regard we would emphasise to all students that
If you feel unwell you should stay away from campus and follow the prevailing HSE advice
Mask wearing is a personal choice for each individual and the context and views of each person should be respected. Supplies of masks will continue to be available on campus.
Following hand and respiratory hygiene is important in prevent the spread of infection and should continue.
Thank you for support of the measures to date that have successfully made SETU Waterford a safe environment and I hope we can continue to provide the best possible environment as we transition out of this pandemic.
