Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in the UK and around the globeDr Shafiq
We are committed to providing quality counseling services and admission support for our applicants and potential applicants. Boost Education Service is concerned about our prospective applicants and all our associates due to the coronavirus (COVID 19) outbreak. Still, we accept applications but are not making any face-to-face appointments. We want to assure our students that their health is most important to us.
As the COVID-19 situation continues to develop in the UK and around the globe, Boost Education is concerned about students, university staff, and our staff to keep safe from this virus. Therefore, we must follow government and NHS guidance to protect ourselves and others around us.
Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms
- a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
- a new, continuous cough – this means you’ve started coughing repeatedly
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.
Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you’re staying at home.
How long to stay at home
- if you have symptoms, stay at home for seven days
- if you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms
If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant, or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days.
If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.
