Aberystwyth University launches ‘five community promises’ as students return

ABERYSTWYTH University has launched five ‘community promises’ as part of its plans to ensure the safety of students, staff and the wider community as it prepares to welcome students back later this month.

The ‘community promises’ outline five pledges for students, staff and the wider town community. The five points are:

Maintain good hygiene – wash hands regularly; Keep our distance – follow guidelines; Know who we are with – test and trace saves lives; Protect those around us – wear a face-covering where advised and Respect each other – be kind

The pledges come on top of the comprehensive safety measures the University has already introduced.

These include introducing one-way systems, classroom layout changes and signage, along with enhanced cleaning and hygiene arrangements, including providing hand sanitizer stations and regular cleaning of frequently touched surfaces.
