There is no doubt that 2020 has been a challenging year and there are many reasons to celebrate as we move into 2021. However you celebrate, it is important that you do so safely.
Wherever you are spending New Year, it is important to continue to follow the national and local restrictions to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
The three key steps we can take as individuals – wearing a face covering, regularly washing our hands, and maintaining a safe distance from anyone from another household – make an enormous difference in keeping everyone; especially those who are most vulnerable, safe and well.
If you have remained in Liverpool during the winter break, or are planning to return to campus or to your term-time address for New Year, Liverpool remains open for you enjoy safely.
It is important to remember that whether you live in halls or elsewhere within the city, as members of both the university community and the local community, you have a responsibility to help us to maintain positive relationships with our neighbours and to keep yourself and others safe.
Ensure that you are up-to-date with local restrictions in the Liverpool City Region, and adhere to all the current regulations.
Find out more about socialising safely on the Campus Safety web hub.
Before you return to Liverpool, we strongly encourage you to take a COVID-19 test at home prior to travelling. We recommend that this be done either at a local test centre, or by requesting a Government at-home testing kit.
Liverpool City Region are also running a testing programme whereby all those, even those without symptoms, who want a test can access one quickly and easily.
By all working together we can keep the virus under control and pave the way for a return to normalcy in 2021.
If you are spending New Year in an area where local restrictions allow, you may choose to go out to celebrate. We wanted to remind everyone of some key safety tips to help you enjoy the New Year safely:
If you’re looking for inspiration for New Year and the rest of the winter break, visit the Support and Activities hub for many virtual and in-person activities and events to get involved with.
And if you haven’t already done so, we also recommend that you download the new ‘My Liverpool’ app. On the app you can view events, create a personalised planner and access information and support. If you turn on the app notifications and location tracker you will be sent new information as it announced.
We have been immensely proud of our #TeamLivUni community throughout this year and wish you all a happy and safe New Year. We look forward to welcoming you all back in 2021!
