It remains important for everyone to be conscious of the continuing threat of COVID-19, and we must all do the best we can to ensure that we look after ourselves and our community. Here are the main things we need to do to keep everyone safe:
Wearing face coverings in College
- We expect everyone to wear masks in all communal areas in College and when moving through corridors and across communal rooms.
- Please do adhere to this guidance: masks continue to be a key pillar of protection, for yourself and others.
You can find the University's guidance on wearing masks on their website, and the updated government guidance on wearing masks in public spaces in England, as well as other measures to combat the new COVID-19 variant, on their website.
COVID-19 Testing and attending events
- Do not come into College if you test positive or if you have any COVID symptoms.
- Students please inform the Porters and staff should inform their Head of Department if they have a positive COVID test or have symptoms.
- If you’re not already full vaccinated, we urge everyone to do so as soon as possible.
- Pop-up vaccination centres are available in many places in Cambridge, and you can find details of vaccination centres here. The Grafton Centre is open daily for all jabs.
- If you are concerned or have questions about vaccinations, please contact the University Communicable Disease Helpdesk.
- Ensure you check the latest government travel guidance if you are leaving College and when you plan to return - things change fast.
- If you need to change your travel plans, then get in touch with the Accommodation Officer or your Tutor if you have concerns or need help.
There are key things we can do to keep each other safe while on site at the College:
- Face coverings help protect others: we expect you to wear one in all communal areas in College and when moving through rooms and communal areas.
- Shared spaces must be well-ventilated. Keep doors and windows open.
- Please keep the numbers in any space to a reasonable level; if a space looks crowded, or makes you uncomfortable, then do not go in.
- If a space becomes too crowded and makes you uncomfortable, you should leave. Ask for help to find alternative places to gather.
- Please always consider using the gardens to gather rather than indoors. Instead of the gym, for example, you could choose to exercise outside.
- Use hand sanitisers and wash your hands regularly.
