Face coverings and moving around in College / University buildings
You should limit movement around College, limiting contact with other people, and stay in your College household as far as this is practicable. When moving around College outside your household:
- You must wear a face covering in enclosed or communal areas and when moving around the college, even outdoors.
- Suitable face coverings should cover your nose and mouth, fit securely against the side of the face and be secured with ties or ear-loops. Fabric face coverings should ideally consist of at least two and preferably three layers. Disposable surgical masks are a highly effective alternative. You may have seen healthcare workers dealing with COVID-19 patients using respirator masks - this is not necessary in the community. You should not use scarves / bandanas or similar items as face coverings: there is evidence to suggest that these make aerosol generation worse rather than better. Visors are not believed to be as effective and must not be considered to be an alternative to face coverings.
- You must wash and dry reusable fabric face coverings (in the same way as usual laundry, in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions) regularly. Disposable face coverings should be disposed of as household waste (not recycling). You should wash (or alcohol gel) your hands before putting on or after taking off a face covering. You should change your face covering if it becomes damp.
