Self Isolation and Quarantine Arrangements
If you or someone in your College household develop symptoms which may be coronavirus or have had a positive COVID-19 test result, everyone in your College household must self-isolate immediately.
You must alert the Porters’ Lodge straight away in this situation, so that they can inform the College Nurse and/or your Tutor. You should not go to the Porters’ Lodge in person. You may contact the Porters’ Lodge by telephone 01223 332100 or email email@example.com. You should report in this way whether or not you live in College accommodation or private accommodation. The Porters’ Lodge will contact each member of your College household instructing them on what to do. Each member of the household must stay in their room and follow instructions given by the duty Porter.
You should then immediately arrange to be tested, see Stay Safe Cambridge Uni - Get tested. Details as to arranging a test will also be supplied by the Porters’ Lodge.
If your test result is positive, you must self-isolate for 10 days from when your symptoms started; your household must also then self-isolate for 14 days from this date.
If your test result is negative, subject to the circumstances you may either be required to have a second test, or advised that no second test is necessary. Only when a second test is negative, or no second test is required, will the rest of the household be able to stop isolating. The Porters’ Lodge will inform the College household members when they are able to come out of self-isolation.
The College, along with any self-isolation supporters, will offer your support during self-isolation.
All students in self-isolation or household isolation will be offered the option of College meals being delivered safely to your accommodation.
The Porters will fix notices up in your household alerting others that you and/or your household are self isolating.
