Masks to be worn again around University of Northampton
Students at the University of Northampton have been told they must start wearing face coverings again.
The change is in response to a national rise in covid cases, and not a local outbreak.
The rule will apply to all university buildings apart from halls of residence and sports venues, such as the Sports Dome.
In terms of on-campus restaurants and cafes, the university has said students should continue to wear a face-covering until seated.
The university has also specified that face coverings should be worn in all teaching room settings and spaces where it is not possible to maintain social distancing.
