Working and learning safely

Information for all users of the History Faculty and Seeley Library

During the Covid-19 pandemic, the History Faculty will take special precautions to ensure that all its members can stay safe. Much of our work has moved online, though some seminars and college supervisions will be face to face. We ask that everyone does their best to observe the regulations and treat all around them with patience and respect, despite the challenges we face.

    All using the building, including students attending face to face seminars, must 

    • Scan the NHS QR code when you enter the building.
    • Sanitise hands on entry
    • Wear a face covering when moving around the building and for all teaching longer than 15 minutes, unless exempt
    • Leave the building promptly at the end of teaching and maintain 2m distance from others at all times
    • Observe the one way system in the Faculty building

    Wearing a face covering during teaching is compulsory for all sessions over 15 minutes - this is new guidance issued on 15th October 2020. They may be removed for very short meetings under 15 minutes, at the discretion of individuals.

    If you have any symptoms, please don't attend any face to face sessions, but follow the instructions issued by the University about testing and self isolation.

    The following links will give you some further detail about our new procedures, and who to contact if you have any concerns.
