COVID-19 Response: Protect our community. Protect the vulnerable. Protect yourself
All staff and students are being asked to look after themselves and others as the University returns for Michaelmas term. A range of guidance has been developed, reminding us of our personal and collective responsibility for keeping the University and local community safe. In particular, you are asked to:
- Keep your distance
- Wash your hands
- Wear a face covering
- Got symptoms? Get a test
- Contacted by track and trace? Stay at home
Information about the guidance is now available on the University's coronavirus health pages, and a short video has also been produced. The materials have been developed with input from the University’s medical and behavioural experts, and in consultation with staff and students across the collegiate University.
