Wearing of face coverings at City College Plymouth
To protect the health, safety and wellbeing of our students, staff and the wider community, the College has taken the decision to introduce the wearing of face coverings in all internal communal areas. From Thursday 3rd September, the new rule will be in place at all City College Plymouth sites and will apply to all students, staff, contractors and other visitors unless they are exempt in line with the Government guidance.
The College strongly believes this is the best course of action to allow us to safely return to onsite teaching.
Please read through the following drop-down sections for more information.

Clear face visors or shields may also be worn, but they must cover the face around the sides and beneath the chin.
Where must I wear a face covering?
Face coverings must be worn in the following internal communal areas, settings and occasions:
