Update and guidance on Coronavirus
Updated: Tuesday 24 March 2020
During these unprecedented circumstances, our first priority continues to be the health, safety and welfare of all our students, course attendees, staff tutors and visitors. We are following the latest advice from the UK government, Public Health England and the NHS.
We continue to review our schedule of activity in light of government directives. As the situation evolves and we take decisions around training, courses and events, we are directly contacting anyone affected, and we will update our website.
Please see the information below for more details, and visit the links on the right for the latest guidance.
Thank you for your understanding and support during this time.
In light of the most recent government guidance, we have postponed our courses until 31 May 2020 and we will contact you if this affects your booking.
In the meantime, we are still accepting online bookings for course dates after 31 May 2020. Please continue to check the relevant section of our website for further updates.
We have postponed face-to-face coaching with our tutors until 31 May 2020 and we will contact you if this affects your booking.
Wherever possible, we are offering our clients a digital coaching alternative.
In the meantime, we are still accepting enquiries for coaching dates after 31 May 2020. Please continue to check the relevant section of our website for further updates.
We are monitoring the situation closely and working on contingency plans across all areas of activity. We will keep our staff and students informed via e-mail communications and Sharepoint; please make sure you check these regularly. Tutors can also access more information on the Chubb Travel Smart portal.
We are supporting staff with working from home wherever possible. Please check the RADA Sharepoint for helpful information and speak to the IT helpdesk, the RADA Business Operations Director, your line manager or HR if you have any issues or concerns.
We know members of our staff community may have concerns about the current situation and about their family and friends. Please do support your colleagues, and contact your line manager about any concerns.
We ask all students and staff to familiarise themselves with the latest public health guidance and follow the advice around self-isolation if necessary.
How to avoid catching or spreading coronavirus
- wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
- always wash your hands when you get home or into work/school
- use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
- cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
- put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards
- try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell
- touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
Check if you need medical help
If you live alone, stay at home for 7 days if you have either:
- a high temperature
- a new, continuous cough
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.
If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill.
Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:
- you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
- your condition gets worse
- your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
