MSPs Urge Student Caution as University and College Students Return

North-east MSPs have urged students returning to university and college campuses across the region to listen to advice from Scotland’s most senior clinicians.

An open joint letter has been written by Dr Gregor Smith, Interim Chief Medical Officer, Professor Fiona McQueen, Chief Nursing Officer, and Professor Jason Leitch, National Clinical Director.

In the letter they also urge students to get tested if they experience any of the three main symptoms of COIVD-19 including a new and continuous cough, a fever or high temperature, or a loss of or change in their sense of taste or smell.

Commenting, Gillian Martin MSP said:

“It’s really important that new students and those returning to campuses are vigilant about any symptoms they develop.

“In order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 at universities and colleges we must ensure students are sticking to Scottish Government guidance at all times.

“I know these are different circumstances than many students would have envisaged but the more we do now to follow these measures and to get tested early will benefit us all.”

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said:

“This letter clearly sets out the guidance on detecting signs of the coronavirus.

“It is up to us all to stay alert and to look out for symptoms of the virus. We know colds and flu-like symptoms are common at this time of year, so it is important we know what symptoms to look out for.”
