Covid-19 (Coronavirus):

Goldsmiths has returned to pre-pandemic ways of learning and working, but we can all help reduce the spread of Covid-19 by taking simple actions when using campus.

If have Covid-19 symptoms

If you have any symptoms of Covid-19, and have a high temperature or you do not feel well enough to go to work or do your normal activities please stay at home and do not come to campus.  If you are in student accommodation avoid interacting with other residents.

The NHS says you should not return to your normal activities until you:

  • feel well enough to do so
  • do not have a high temperature

If you have Covid-19

If you have tested positive for Covid-19 please stay at home and do not come to campus.

The NHS advises that if you have Covid-19, you can pass on the virus to other people for up to 10 days from when your infection starts. Many people will no longer be infectious to others after 5 days.

You should:

  • try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days
  • avoiding meeting people at higher risk from COVID-19 for 10 days, especially if their immune system means they’re at higher risk of serious illness from COVID-19, even if they’ve had a Covid-19 vaccine

Face coverings

In line with other service providers (TFL for example) face coverings are no longer compulsory or recommended to be worn indoors on campus and in public areas.

Individuals may feel more comfortable wearing a face covering on campus and our community is asked to respect people’s freedom to choose

Wash your hands regularly

There are hand sanitiser dispensers throughout our buildings.

Use these when you enter a building and regularly as you move around. Or wash your hands with soap and water.

Keep rooms ventilated

Where possible open the windows of the room you are in to help with ventilation.

Our air conditioning units will be switched on to assist with the airflow.

Vaccinations available at Amersham Vale

Working with our partners at Amersham Vale GP practice we have arranged for Goldsmiths students and staff to have their vaccinations and boosters at the GP practice close to campus. The practice is based in the Waldron Health Centre, Amersham Vale, London, SE14 6LD.

They are offering walk-in clinics (no appointment necessary). See nhs.uk for the opening times.
