We have been working with Birmingham City Council to provide testing facilities on our campus since August 2020, which provides testing for up to 300 people per day. This is one of the many activities Aston has undertaken to support the fight against Covid-19 in the city.
The safety of our students and staff are of the utmost importance at this time. The provision of these facilities means in the event of a student or colleague displaying symptoms, they are able to apply to have their test on campus. This means they would not need to travel a long distance to a testing centre when feeling unwell and when they may be carrying the virus.
From September 2020, all universities have been asked by the Department of Health to provide testing on their campuses.
