Update: How to report COVID-19 self-isolation and test results

The University has introduced changes to how you report any COVID-19 isolation periods and how you inform us about your COVID test results.

How to report that you are self-isolating

Firstly, the place where you currently report that you are self-isolating will no longer be on Liverpool Life, and will now be on the COVID student intranet page.

You should use this form to report any time you need to self-isolate, which could be due to being a close contact of someone with COVID-19, waiting on your own test results or receiving a positive result.

How to report your test results and test information

The COVID Response Team has also launched a new Case Management System.

This system allows staff and students to self-report that you are symptomatic and have booked a test, as well as positive COVID-19 test results from either asymptomatic tests (lateral-flow tests) or any symptomatic PCR tests.

The data will be accessed by the University’s Contact Tracing Team, who will then be in touch to follow track and trace protocol.

For the majority of students, reporting on this system will mean that you do not need to also contact your School or Department to advise them of your test results. The exception to this is any students who are studying a clinical course; please continue to report to your local area as you currently do.

We would also like to remind you of our COVID-19 helpline, where a member of staff can assist you with any queries that you have with the self-isolation reporting, the COVID Case Management System or any other COVID related questions you have. The helpline is available Monday to Sunday 10.00am to 4.30pm by calling 0151 795 9500.

Once again, thank you for your co-operation during these times.
