We are very aware that the unusual circumstances in which we all find ourselves are putting additional pressure on everyone and we want to reassure you that structures are in place to offer support.

This is a testing time, but we are confident that by looking out for each other and seeing new ways to work and support one another, we will discover new depths of strength and resilience within ourselves, individually and collectively.

If we all maintain these guidelines, we will stay safe and well and be able to provide a positive environment for study and work for all members of the College community.

The general guideline as to whether you should return to working in College, whether full-time or part-time, is that you should continue to work from home as far as possible, only returning to College if you cannot do your work effectively from home as discussed with your line manager.  You can take a COVID-19 Vulnerability Self-Assessment on the University’s Occupational Health website and we encourage all staff to do so: https://occupationalhealth.web.ox.ac.uk/covid-19-vulnerability-self-assessment#/.

Current government guidelines are available here, and University guidelines are available here.
