The university says students or staff who have tested positive will be required to self-isolate.

To support them they have put in a range of measures, including food and medication deliveries, laundry and cleaning, as well as support for well-being and study.

All students have access to 24/7 wellbeing support through Togetherall.

A University Outbreak Response Team has been set up and co-ordinates the university's response in the face of an outbreak with Bristol City Council's public health team and Public Health England.

Arrangements are in place for out-of-hours escalation if it is needed.
