SU Community Officer, Alisha Lobo, has issued the following statement in response to concerns raised by the international Coronavirus outbreak:
“The current situation regarding Coronavirus has been concerning for many members of our community on campus; not just for their own situation but for any family and friends that may be living in affected areas.
“These kind of situations also tend to prompt all kinds of rumours and false stories, so we’re working with the University and Public Health England to make sure all of the information is up-to-date and to give everyone the relevant support they need.
“During this time, we want to remind you that ALL members of our community should be treated with kindness, tolerance and respect and that anything to the contrary is taken very seriously.”
If you have experienced or witnessed anything which has made you feel uncomfortable both on and off campus, please do report this via www.bath.ac.uk/campaigns/report-and-support/.
Following your report, the services you selected will be in touch with you to confidentially provide advice and support. You may also wish to report through SARI, a charity dedicated to Racism and Inequality: https://www.sariweb.org.uk/. If you would like to talk to anyone in person our SU Advice and Support Centre within The SU building, has Advisers to speak with Monday – Friday, 10:00 – 16:00., so please do pop in.
If you are a student that has not been able to leave China due to the travel ban and would like to get some advice and support, please do also speak with our SU Advice and Support Centre.
