This 'RVC Contact Tracing Arrangements for Staff and Students Reporting Suspected and Confirmed cases of COVID-19' policy applies to all staff and students and aims to control the spread of COVID-19 within the learning spaces and workplace, protect staff and student health and maintain essential business.

The policy will define the RVC process and identify key contacts for early notification. The information gathered in the period between a suspected and confirmed case of COVID-19 at the RVC could be used to prevent an outbreak of COVID-19 at the RVC, where an outbreak is defined as the identification of two or more confirmed and connected cases of COVID-19. It will not replace the NHS Test and Trace process but may be a source of local knowledge that will expedite actions in the event of COVID-19 positive cases.
