Resources and advice for staff

We have all had to learn COVID-awareness, affecting almost every aspect of our life and behaviour, and a huge amount of work has gone into our plans for this academic year to ensure continuity of College life.

The welfare of our staff, fellows and lecturers is our absolute priority, and we will continue to provide as much advice, care and support as we can. The information and resources below will ensure you understand the measures Wadham and the university are undertaking to keep you safe, while allowing you to work and take part in college life as much as possible.

Key information for all staff

The main Oxford University COVID19 response pages for staff contain the most up to date and detailed information for college and university staff, including guidance on the university’s face coverings policy and information about the Early Alert testing service. For Wadham policies on home-working, return to work and wellbeing support, and information about teaching and supporting students please contact the Human Resources Department, your Head of Department or the Senior Tutor.

What to do if you have COVID-19 symptoms

If you are concerned about possible COVID symptoms, please see University guidance

If you have a high fever, a new continuous cough and loss of taste or smell please contact College and remain in isolation until you have been tested and test results are confirmed. 

Staff members can arrange tests through the NHS/Government or the University testing service

Staff members should remain in isolation until the test results are known, contacting and your line manager/HR/Senior Tutor with the start date of your self-isolation. Please let us know whether you are self-isolating because you have developed the symptoms, a member of your household has developed the symptoms or you have been told to self-isolate by a doctor or NHS 111.
