Speak Up London statement on Coronavirus

Jan 31, 2020 Announcement

We take the welfare of our students and staff very seriously at Speak Up London. With the developing situation in China, we would like to communicate the precautions we are putting in place to ensure our students and staff are safe.

The risk in the UK is currently classified as low. However, we are aware of the spread of the Coronavirus is escalating and we are monitoring the situation closely. Direct flights from Wuhan in China have now been suspended and advanced monitoring has been added at airports with direct flights from China.

The China Travel Service Association (CTSA) has announced the suspension of business travel, group tours and package trips for the present time.

The UK Government has introduced advanced monitoring at airports with direct flights from China. A team of public health experts has been established at Heathrow to support anyone travelling in from China who feels unwell.

We are taking extra precautions to ensure our students and staff are safe by raising awareness of the symptoms of the virus and how it is spread. We will be introducing anti-bacterial hand sanitising gel in the school and providing recommended guidance for avoiding exposure to any potential infection.

Please refer to the following government websites for regular updates and further guidance on the situation:
