About Coronavirus:

 

There is currently an outbreak of a novel coronavirus. The risk to people living in the UK is considered low and there are no specific precautions that are required in the school/college community.

 

The majority of cases report a mild illness, from which they make a full recovery. However, some people have developed a more serious illness. Symptoms include fever, cough, chest tightness or shortness of breath.  

 

If you have visited any of the above countries and you feel well then no action is required. If you are a Goldsmiths student you may continue to attend classes as normal.

 

We would encourage you to maintain good hygiene practice.  Coughing and sneezing should be into tissues that are promptly disposed of in bins.  Hands should be washed with soap and water or using an alcohol hand rub even if hands are visibly clean.

 

Further guidance is in preparation and guidance documents are being regularly updated.
