NEW rules have been introduced for schools amid rising concerns of Covid-19 and the Omicron variant.

All students now must wear a face mask or a visor in all areas of school - unless they’re exempt.

If they are exempt, then a sunflower lanyard must be worn at Barnsley College - these can be found at reception.

Students must also be taking lateral flow tests before returning to college.

A spokesperson said: “Face masks/visors keep all of our students, staff and visitors safe, and these rules MUST be followed at all times.”
