I have had a positive PCR NHS test in the last 90 days

I have had a negative PCR NHS test, or one negative LFD test within the last 3 days
If you have had a negative PCR (NHS) or one negative LFD test in the last 3 days you can log this here. you will be asked which type of test you took as well as the date. This will log the information on your Covid Journal.

I have had a 2nd negative LFD test within the last 3 days and that test was within 3 days of the first LFD test i.e. you have had two negative LFD tests not more than 3 days apart

I am currently self-isolating for 10 days and/or will have completed a period of self-isolation for 10 days prior to coming on to campus
If you are currently self-isolating, or plan to start a self-isolation period you can log this here. You will be asked to confirm the start date of your self-isolation and then this will provide you information on your Covid Journal on when your isolation is due to end.

I have had a COVID vaccination
If you have completed the course of your Covid vaccination (received 2 doses) you can log this here.
