• Please consider all forms of travel before using public transport. It is advisable to cycle, walk or drive to work if you are able to.
  • It is advisable not to car share during the restrictions unless the other passengers are from the same household.
  • If you need to travel by public transport, it is compulsory to wear a face covering during your journey to reduce the risks of COVID-19 to yourself and others.
  • Try to avoid travelling at peak times where possible to avoid large crowds.
  • When you reach the Campus please sanitise or wash your hands at the earliest opportunity to reduce the risks of transmission.

Staff Personal and Business Travel

Personal travel

If you are planning personal travel, you must consult Public Health England information pages before booking any travel to FCO-specified areas. When deciding whether to travel, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Is my travel essential?
  2. What would the impact be for me if I need to self-quarantine for 14 days on return to the UK - or couldn’t return when planned due to airline/state travel restrictions?
  3. Am I more vulnerable to infection and could I be seriously affected by COVID-19?
  4. Does my travel insurance cover pandemic associated services and costs? (NB: The Association of British Insurers has issued Coronavirus Q&A but you will likely need to speak to your insurance company to check as this cover may depend on when your insurance was purchased and your travel booking made.)
