What to do if you need to self-isolate or stay at home or care for a dependant in relation to Covid-19 (Coronavirus).
Primary page content
The government has said to stay at home for 14 days if you or anyone in your house have either:
- a high temperature
- a new continuous cough
If you need to tell Goldsmiths about this
You don't need to tell your department if you are staying at home or self-isolating and still able to study as normal. If you are concerned your studies have been impacted contact your department or tutor.
If you live in Goldsmiths accommodation email firstname.lastname@example.org (no matter who manages your accommodation). Accommodation services will provide advice about self-isolating in halls.
We expect that the majority of Goldsmiths staff will now be working at home until further notice.
You should still notify your line manager of your situation if you are unable to work due to sickness, whether you are suffering from Covid-19, suspected Covid-19 or another illness. You must also keep in regular contact with your line manager.
If you are self-isolating but able to continue to work from home please fill out a declaration form
If you unfit for work you should report this as usual in line with the sickness absence policy by recording your absence on Business World. Use the 'Remote Working' from the quick links section of Goldmine to access Business World from home. If you cannot access this then your line manager should do this for you if possible.
HR will be monitoring the self-isolation and sickness absence reports submitted in this way. You do not need to notify HR outside these processes.
