On the 17th September the principal released a message to all students and colleagues at Stirling University, making them aware of the situation
The Principal of Stirling University has assured students and faculty that the University is working closely with NHS Forth Valley to support the singular affected student.
The student has not had any contact with any personnel at the university and has went into self isolation immediately.
The NHS has officially stated that due to this self isolation measure and the early catching of the virus, that there is an extremely low risk of further cases.
The Principal went on to add that, “The health, safety, and wellbeing of our students, staff, and wider community, is of the utmost importance, and this case demonstrates that our community is aware of the importance of alerting the university and NHS Test and Protect if they display symptoms, and taking appropriate action.”
The university has stressed the importance of adhering to COVID-19 guidelines and precautions stringently, and action will be taken against those who do not follow them, for the safety of all our wellbeing.
