The University of Cambridge's COVID Community Statement

As Cambridge continues to adapt to the challenges of Covid-19, and as we begin the process of welcoming back staff and students to onsite work and study, it has never been more important to look after ourselves and others.

The University and Colleges will do all they can to minimise risk to staff, students and visitors, and to make sure they are appropriately supported. But safety and wellbeing in these extraordinary times is ultimately the responsibility of us all. We must recognise that our behaviour has consequences – for the people immediately affected by it, for our collegiate community, and the local region, including vital public services such as the NHS and police.

Each of us has had, and will continue to have, different experiences of the pandemic. And for many, those experiences are challenging and stressful. We must be alert to this and respectful of people who may have particular vulnerabilities.

In summary, and to ensure that our people and community continue to thrive, each one of us has a responsibility to:

  • Behave in a way that minimises the risk of infection
  • Treat each other with dignity and respect
  • Keep up to date with public health guidance and follow it at all times.

Further information and guidance are available for students.

Wolfson College COVID-19 Commitment

This Commitment sets out expectations for standards of behaviour for all Wolfson members. 

So long as the risk of COVID-19 infection continues to threaten our Community and others, we the members of the Wolfson Community commit to:

  • Behave in a way that minimises the risk of infection
  • Treat each other with dignity and respect
  • Keep up to date with public health guidance and follow it at all times

We will follow the College’s guidelines and protect ourselves and others: #StaySafeWolfson

It is up to all of us to model and encourage these behaviours. Whilst we may all remind each other of the importance of honouring the Commitment, it is not the responsibility of Wolfson staff to 'police' our community. If a member of our community fails to honour the Commitment, and puts others at risk, procedural rules will apply. We hope however is that disciplinary action will be uncalled for and that any minor incidents of non-compliance can be resolved quickly and without risk to others.
