Sort out the Student Catastrophe

262 of 1,000 signatures

Everyone knew that the new university term was going to be the biggest movement of people since the virus started.

Students have been treated in a shabby way and let down.

The Scottish Government must take immediate steps to tackle the problem. They need to keep people safe.

Scottish Liberal Democrats have a plan to sort out the student catastrophe:

  1. Mass routine asymptomatic testing to start in universities to reach people who show no symptoms but who carry the virus.
  2. Students who test negative to be given the option to return home safely.
  3. Rent money to be returned to students who leave their accommodation, temporarily or permanently.
  4. Unwell students to get additional support from universities and local health professionals – including the option of being moved.
  5. New mental health support services to reach students who feel trapped.

This needs sorted now.
