Advice for University students
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advise against all but essential travel to Wuhan city, Hubei Province. More information is available on their Travel Advice web page.
If you’re travelling to Wuhan, you should maintain good hand, respiratory and personal hygiene, and should avoid visiting animal and bird markets or people who are ill with respiratory symptoms.
If you develop respiratory symptoms within 14 days of visiting Wuhan, either in China or on your return to the UK, you should seek medical attention.
Call 111 to contact the NHS 111 Service. The operator will be able to give you advice and support and help you take appropriate action if necessary. Make sure you tell your health service about your recent travel to the city before you attend any appointment.
