A message from your Activities Officer
2020 is hands down the biggest let down. The start to the new decade had so much promise, but each passing unprecedented event has made this year one of the most difficult for all of us. It’s easy to forget, but we must remember that we’re all in this together, and there are so many ways that we can help one another during these tough times.
It can feel like students are currently the scapegoat for the spread of Covid-19, but the virus doesn’t discriminate and we know that this isn’t true. We are proud of the students at Newcastle who are doing their best to stick to the guidelines and help reduce the spread of the virus, whether this is wearing a mask, organising virtual events, or simply staying at home. You’ll have heard this a thousand times by now, but doing these things, and sticking to the government guidelines, is so important and the more we adhere to the advice, the sooner we can return to normality.
You’ll be getting so much information regarding Covid-19 and it might be overwhelming, so we’ve put together this page. All the key information is here, such as the latest guidelines, information of accessing the SU building, and other handy links for useful websites.
This is a rocky start to the year for sure, but it won’t be forever. Stay safe x
Hannah Finney, Activities Officer
