Keeping us Safe
Some of the key precautions we ask everyone to follow to keep everyone safe while at Wolfson College.
Working from home
Stay in your household and work from there whenever you can; limiting face-to-face contact whilst doing so.
When outside of your household maintain social distance. This means: 2 metres when outdoors; 2 metres, wherever possible, plus a face-covering (see 4 below) when indoor in shared spaces. If possible, never spend more than 15 minutes closer than 2 metres to others, even if you are wearing a face-covering.
Wash your hands frequently, regularly and thoroughly with soap and running water for at least 20 seconds, or use alcohol-based hand-sanitiser (see here).
Wear a face-covering at all times: indoors in shared areas (except in your household, or when eating or drinking in the Hall, Bar or café where special rules apply); outdoors whenever you are likely to come closer than 2 metres to anyone (e.g. on public transport, in crowded streets, in shops etc). This does not apply to those granted exemption: see here.
If you are displaying any of the symptoms of COVID-19, self-isolate in your room, flat or house, arrange to have a test and report immediately to firstname.lastname@example.org (see here for symptoms and how to arrange a test through the NHS. From the start of term, tests will also be available through the University.
