In-person Short Courses & Summer Schools: COVID-19 Guidance

The School has put in place a series of measures to ensure a COVID safe working and training environment for staff and participants. Our first priority continues to be the health, safety and welfare of all our participants and staff, and we are following the latest advice from the UK government to help limit the risk of COVID-19 infection. 

There is a risk of the transmission of Covid–19 in any environment where people gather. This risk increases in enclosed spaces and with increased numbers of people.

The safety measures that have been introduced and are changing with UK government guidance are intended to minimise the risk of contracting COVID-19 but this risk cannot be completely eradicated. By attending a course or booking accommodation in Sundial, you are acknowledging that an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. Participants and residents attending a short course or staying in Sundial acknowledge that they do so at their own risk.

COVID-19 protocols and safety measures - updated 31 March 2022
