Some students have part-time jobs, and many will go home on the weekends to visit family and friends,” Dr Casey said.“With the onset of the dominant UK COVID-19 variant, which is more transmissible than the original strain, there is now a high level of risk of transmission in the student community,” she warned.“Because many young people will carry the virus without any symptoms, this presents an increased risk of infection to household, workplace and family contacts. Outbreaks arising out of household transmission is starting to become a worrying trend across the Mid-West, at a crucial time when we need to suppress the virus’ spread in the community.”“We are urging everyone in the region to avoid household visits and social gatherings of any kind, as we have seen far too many times how a single episode of social contact has led to serious illness and death,” added Dr Casey.Students at UL have been repeatedly advised to follow public health guidelines, to download the COVID tracker app and to self-isolate if they display any symptoms while they await a test.UL said that, overall, it has seen a high level of compliance on campus with the COVID-19 precautions it had put in place.Students have been contacted with full details on how to register online for an on-campus test.All tests will be processed by the HSE.

Faulkner leaves Villa

first_img Boss Paul Lambert has since appointed Roy Keane as his new assistant, but the loss of Faulkner serves as another blow to the midlands outfit. Although Lerner and Faulkner have worked closely together for many years, with the latter involved in a variety of roles in the former’s many businesses, the two have now gone their separate ways. It follows a failure to reach an agreement on Faulkner’s future as the club claim, via a statement, he had hoped to “re-engage with Lerner’s broader business while remaining involved with Villa in a non-operational role”. Faulkner has parted on good terms, and has offered his support to Villa to ensure a smooth transition. Robin Russell, appointed by Lerner in 2006 as chief financial officer, has stepped in as acting chief executive. Faulkner said: “I would like to thank Randy for the opportunity to become involved with Aston Villa and for the relationship we built over the years, which pre-dated my time at the club. “To the Villa fans, I am grateful for their support over the years, and for their passionate love for, and loyalty to, this great club which deserves the very best. “I would like to make particular reference to the wonderful Villa staff both at Bodymoor Heath and Villa Park. Aston Villa’s summer of upheaval continued on Tuesday with the club confirming Paul Faulkner has stepped down as chief executive. “They are an incredible group of people and it’s been a privilege to lead and work with them on a daily basis. “Villa is best in class in so many ways off the field, and I only hope that success on the pitch follows. “I feel very humbled to have been able to spend such a long period of time amongst such special people at such a special club and I wish them, Paul Lambert and the squad all the very best for the future as I look to embark on the next stage of my career and a new challenge.” In response, Lerner said: “Paul has been fantastic in his role at Villa and more broadly as a colleague over the years. I offer him my deepest thanks.” At the end of last season owner Randy Lerner had put Villa up for sale as the American decided he had spent enough in attempting to raise the club’s profile and fortunes. Several weeks ago the club also sacked assistant manager Ian Culverhouse and head of football operations Gary Karsa following an internal investigation into off-field issues.
