Updated 2 April 2020.
I understand that at times many in College – students and staff – will be worried, anxious, possibly ill and I undertake to act at all times with the awareness that we are a single community, determined to support and sustain one another to the best of our ability, no matter how difficult the circumstances.
I am aware that large residential institutions are at higher risk for the rapid spread of infection and I agree to follow all guidance issued by the Government, the University and the College in order to minimize the health risks to myself and others.
I have read the Full Guidance on Staying at Home and Away From Others, and I undertake to follow its instructions faithfully as long as they remain in force.
I agree to keep myself up to date with current guidelines from Public Health England and the University by checking them daily.
I agree to inform the College by phoning the Porters (01223 335900) and by emailing my tutor should I become unwell with symptoms of coronavirus as set out here and to update the College on changes in my health or College residence by email to: email@example.com
I have completed the online College Census and listed there the names of two current Wolfson residents who are not members of my College household (i.e. with whom I do not share a bathroom, toilet or kitchen) who will be my Supporters if I or my household need to isolate. If I do not know two people in College who can assist me, I will ask the Tutorial Office Manager to identify two volunteer Supporters.
I will email COVID19@wolfson.cam.ac.uk if any of the following information changes: my plans to remain in Cambridge (in College-owned or private accommodation), my address, my previously reported status about any vulnerability to more serious COVID-related illness, my status in terms of self- or household-isolation, and the names of 2 nominated self-isolation supporters.
I understand that if someone with whom I share a kitchen, bathroom or toilet develops symptoms, then I and my entire household are required to self-isolate for 14 days. I have read the Government’s ‘Stay at home guidance for households with possible coronavirus infection’.
I understand that the College site grounds and buildings is closed to all guests, including non-resident partners. In order to prevent infection of my household, I will not invite guests from outside College or from other households within College into my bedroom, flat, staircase, corridor or group house.
I understand that Social Distancing is necessary and will maintain a distance of at least 2 metres from everyone outside my own household at all times, and I accept that the current ban on all gatherings of more than 2 people on public grounds applies to the College gardens.
I understand that services available from the College will be restricted and I accept that as a result of the ‘stay home’ order repairs may be made slowly or not at all; cleaning inside residential blocks will become students’ responsibility; and catering services will be restricted.
I understand that it is imperative for the good of all to follow the rules set out above and that failure to observe them may have disciplinary consequences.
Finally, I promise to do all I can to take care of myself during the weeks and months ahead, but also to ask for assistance whenever I need it, understanding that even in difficult times the College will do its best to support me.
