Campus reopening: Mayor says unis 'pro-active' in their Covid plans

Marvin Rees, Mayor of Bristol, has replied to my letter urging the city’s pandemic planners to scrutinise the University of Bristol’s arrangements for reopening its campus. The university has meanwhile issued a statement setting out how it intends to make reopening safe for students, staff and the wider population (see links below). I wrote to the mayor on 12 August suggesting that he and Bristol’s director of public health, Christina Gray, should take a close look at UoB’s reopening plans to ensure community safety.
