If you have symptoms of coronavirus (Covid-19)

If you feel unwell and have flu-like symptoms, you should contact your local GP – but most importantly - in the first instance only by phone. The doctor will tell you what happens next. This is to prevent the spread of possible infection to other patients in the GP surgery waiting room. If you are ill, stay at home.


Hygiene Measures

You should wash your hands regularly with plenty of soap and water and make use of the hand-sanitiser and surface disinfectants stations available in the washrooms and at the University entrances. If you don’t have a tissue, you should cough or sneeze into the crook of your elbow rather than your hands. Employees, teaching staff and students are also expressly requested not to shake hands at present and to keep distance from one another, which should, of course, not be interpreted as unfriendliness.
