Students were given wristbands to attend the University of Bath's fresher's week events based on their vaccination status.
Depending on the color of the wristband, admission to the nightclubs or events would be easier and more convenient. On Twitter, the University of Bath posted on September 14 that students could buy the fresher's week bands from the SU. Wristbands were given to first-year students that signify whether they had been vaccinated, with unvaccinated students wearing a different color. Students with wristbands different from vaccinated were allowed to enter, but they had to wait in a separate line.
Unvaccinated students had to utilize the National Health Service(NHS) App to prove a negative Lateral Flow test on each event night. The students were asked to show the NHS SMS message indicating a negative Lateral Flow test result. For the entire seven days, wristbands were checked at all entries in the nightclubs or events.
