University of East London Covid-19 Community Pledge


University of East London campus


Our priority is to provide a safe and welcoming inclusive environment. We are embracing and adapting to new ways of teaching, learning, working and having fun. This ‘new normal’ requires all of us to take an active role in promoting the safety, health and wellbeing of every community member.

The UK has started to issue Covid-19 vaccines to individuals in the vulnerable category. Therefore, it is imperative that everyone at UEL does their part to keep infection rates as low as possible. This will only happen if we follow government and University guidelines to the best of our ability.

We are therefore asking all staff, students and visitors to the University of East London to commit to the University of East London Covid-19 Community Pledge.

The pledge offers a set of simple steps we can all take to keep our community safer. While the pledge is voluntary, if you follow these guidelines, you will protect the health of yourself and others and, ultimately, you will help save lives. 


The University of East London Covid-19 Community Pledge

As a member of the UEL community, I am committed to keeping myself and our community healthy and safe from the spread of Covid-19. I pledge to take the following top ten actions:
  1. Stay home if I think I have symptoms of Covid-19, or if I have tested positive for the virus. I will follow government guidance on self-isolating.

  2. Complete UEL’s Daily 123. This means I will:

    • TEST - Before coming onto campus each day complete UEL's online health status questionnaire to determine whether or not you may attend campus that day. Access the questionnaire for students or staff. If you are going to be on campus, we ask that you first take a Covid-19 test at our SportsDock testing centre. You can book a slot, here; the testing process is easy and only takes about 20 minutes.
    • DISTANCE - Check-in when you arrive and leave campus using the free Safezone app. Download from any app store and sign in with your University credentials. This app helps keep you safe while on any of our campuses and allows you to be sent quick and reliable safety notifications, such as Covid-19 updates, wherever you are. Find out more, including data use.
    • TRACK - Download and use the NHS coronavirus contact-tracing. Find out more, including data use and privacy. 
      The Daily 1,2,3 is part of our Covid-19 Community Pledge. The Pledge offers a set of simple steps we can all take to keep ourselves and our community healthy and safe from the spread of Covid-19.

  3. Wear a face covering on campus, unless I have a health or disability exemption.

  4. Practice physical distancing of two metres, where possible, and avoid social gathering and parties of more than six people.

  5. Engage with all Campus capacity notifications and University health communications.

  6. Follow directional signage, including one-way systems.

  7. Practice good hygiene, including regular handwashing and use of hand sanitiser.

  8. Support & encourage other members of the University community to follow this pledge.

  9. Behave with kindness and respect towards others.

  10. Stay up-to-date on NHS and government guidance, and check my University emails for regular Covid-secure updates and guidance.
