Update COVID-19: Advice to all students, parents & carers – 06/11/2020   

Dear students, parents and carers   

Further to my last communication to you on  30th October 2020, I would like to update you on the current COVID-19 situation in the College.  

REPORTED COVID-19 CASES: LATEST DATA  

The table below gives the most up-to-date picture of COVID-19 infections at South Devon College in all areas.  

Weekly cases: 5 (Total cases reported during the last 7 days – this gives an indication of the number of current cases)  
Total cases: 18 (A running total of positive cases reported to the College by students and staff since the first case was reported on Wednesday 7th  October 2020)  

Please remember to complete the ‘out of hours Notification of a POSITIVE COVID-19 test result’ form to alert us if you or a member of your household receive a positive test result in the evening or during the weekend.  The form is available on our main website. 

Please note, if you are required to self-isolate because you have been told to do so by the College, the NHS App, NHS Test & Trace or a member of your household/close contact is symptomatic and then you subsequently develop COVID symptoms, please do notify your tutor immediately. 

I want to continue to reassure you, again, that as a College we are doing everything possible to ensure the safety of our students and staff during this COVID-19 global pandemic.   

As promised, we will continue to issue a weekly update of the number of confirmed cases within the College. We will provide this update at 2pm on Friday afternoon each week including during College holidays.   

Everything possible is being done to safely keep the College open for students and staff. The College remains open and, providing you and your family members remain well, coming to College and work can continue as normal.  This is a team effort and we ask every single student and staff member to do everything possible to keep each other safe and well.  

Thank you very much for your ongoing support.  

Yours sincerely,  

Laurence Frewin  

Principal and CEO  
South Devon College
