Coronavirus and College

1 month ago

The Warden is committed to keeping College open – however with a stringent raft of hygiene and social distancing measures for current residents. In everything we do we need to be extremely vigilant in the precautions we take as the risks are high. As has been reiterated in the media, we must practise good hygiene to protect both ourselves and our wider community. To that end, the College has taken the unprecedented step of implementing a policy of closure to all guests and visitors, to the greatest extent possible. This means that there are to be no visitors to the College during this period, reducing the risk of guests unintentionally transmitting the virus to our students, whose safety is paramount, and vice-versa.
