Under level 2 there are some rules which you can read here:

We ask everyone to follow these principles:

1.  Ensure you adhere to the physical distancing guidelines . For example in CO219 you can only use every second workstation.
2.  Stay at home if you are unwell
3.  Regularly clean your hands—either with sanitiser and allow to air dry, or with soap and water, taking care to dry your hands thoroughly
4.  Disinfect and clean your workspace/s as  you need to take responsibility for your own space. This includes your keyboard, desk, and any other equipment you regularly use.  We will provide cleaning things in the room - if you run out please go to the School Office on the third floor of Cotton for more.
5.  Complete what is required for contact tracing while you are on campus: Also make sure you swipe in and out of the room with your card. Also keep a personal record.
6.  Please no guests in the room.
7. Strictly no drinking or eating in the room
