Attending in-person events

Some attendees may continue to have concerns about returning to in person events, and we ask all members of the University to be considerate and continue to take steps to reduce the risk of infection. This includes: 

  • avoid contact with others if you might be infectious (see the advice on our website for what to do if you feel unwell or might have COVID); 
  • respect other people’s space; 
  • let fresh air in when indoors (find further guidance on ventilation on the Safety Office website); 
  • keep up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations; 
  • respect those who choose to wear a face covering; and 
  • cover coughs and sneezes and wash your hands regularly. 

Please see the Oxford University health webpage for further details.
