Covid-19 information from Tyndale House
Last updated May 2022
At Tyndale House we are committed to fostering an evangelical research community, and to do so as safely as is reasonably possible. We recognise that members of the Tyndale House community will have different views on the relative risks of Covid-19 and the relative benefits of measures meant to mitigate it.
The guidance below is based on the information and guidance set out by the UK Government.
You are no longer required to test for Covid-19.
If you have symptoms of a respiratory infection, such as Covid-19, and you have a high temperature or do not feel well enough to go to work or carry out normal activities, try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people, until you no longer have a high temperature (if you had one) or until you no longer feel unwell.
If you have tested positive for Covid-19: There is no longer a requirement to test for Covid-19, however, if you do, and you test positive, the UK Government advises that you try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days after the day you took your test.
After 5 days, if you have a high temperature or feel unwell, try to follow this advice until you feel well enough to resume normal activities and you no longer have a high temperature if you had one.
Regular hand washing can be an effective way to reduce the risk of catching and spreading illnesses. We therefore ask that you wash your hands with soap and water or use hand sanitiser upon entering the site, as well as regularly throughout the day.
Fresh air and good ventilation can vastly reduce the risk of airborne transmission of respiratory infections. We therefore encourage that windows are being opened in the library and common rooms when used. Blankets have been provided for each desk in the library to facilitate this.
For security reasons, please do take great care to shut any windows when you leave the room/your desk and if you see any empty rooms with windows open.
We encourage you to being aware of the sensitivity of others, recognising that some may still prefer to wear a face mask when meeting in person.
We thank you for your continued patience and understanding at this time. Please get in touch with email@example.com if you have any questions/queries.
