Coronavirus guidance

This page contains information for students, Fellows and staff. Please familiarise yourself with the information that relates to you so that we can all help Cambridge stay safe.

It remains that washing hands is an effective way to combat the spread of infectious diseases and, while wearing a face-covering is no longer a requirement anywhere in College, those who wish to are welcome to do so.

Stay up-to-date with the latest guidelines on Coronavirus on the Government website.

If you test positive for Coronavirus

Although the Government advice is to treat this as any other respiratory infection, and there is no legal requirement to isolate, we believe we should all look out for each other as a community. As such, if you test positive for Covid-19, we strongly encourage you to advise your line manager (for staff), the Senior Tutor (for Fellows), and the College nurse (for students) and to remain at home for five days and until you test negative.

Key principles

  • Wash your hands regularly – hand sanitising stations remain in place around College.
  • Consider social distancing when you go out.
  • Stay alert to minimising the risks of virus transmission in all aspects of your life.
  • If you or anyone you live with has symptoms, follow the Government guidance to stay safe.
  • We also strongly recommend College members become fully vaccinated and boosted.
  • If you are self-isolating do not attend meetings or supervisions in person.

Vaccination

Vaccination remains one of the best methods of defence against the further spread of COVID-19.

Pop-up clinics are available in Cambridgeshire. For more information on them see the NHS Vaccinators webpage. For more general information from the NHS on Coronavirus vaccinations see the NHS website.

  • a high temperature
