You can reduce the risk of catching and passing on COVID-19 by:

Getting vaccinated – We all have a responsibility to help slow the transmission of Covid-19 and protect our community. Having your vaccines and a booster is one of the best ways of doing this.

Taking a test – Taking a test if you have COVID-19 symptoms, and staying at home and avoiding contact with other people if you test positive

Ventilating spaces – Letting fresh air in if meeting indoors or meeting outside. We have procedures in place to assess ventilation levels in internal spaces on campus. Capacities are based on ventilation and air quality and enable us to be considerate of everyone in our community and respect each other’s space.

Wearing a face covering – Wearing a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces, especially where you come into contact with people you do not usually meet, when rates of transmission are high.

Washing your hands – Washing your hands and following advice to ‘Catch it, Bin it, Kill it.’

Staying at home if you are unwell – For more information on the symptoms of Covid-19, please visit the https://www.dur.ac.uk/coronavirus/
