Coronavirus update

In line with current Government information, all classes and events at the School of Traditional Arts are running as normal.

Staff, students, and visitors are asked to be vigilant and up-to-date with this information as it is released.

The UK Chief Medical Officers have now raised the risk to the UK from moderate to high. As per the current advice, the most important thing individuals can do to protect themselves remains washing their hands more often, for at least 20 seconds, with soap and water. Make sure you cough or sneeze into a tissue, put it in a bin and wash your hands. We are asking anyone who shows certain symptoms to self-isolate for 7 days, regardless of whether they have travelled to affected areas. This means we want people to stay at home and avoid all but essential contact with others for 7 days from the point of displaying mild symptoms, to slow the spread of infection.
