Coronavirus safety

The College continues to prioritise keeping people safe and maintaining confidence in our risk management measures. We want you to have a good experience on site and for our staff to remain confident in working here. We will continue to monitor the risk and adapt our plans in response as needed.

We have planned this event to take place outdoors where possible. Therefore please come prepared for changeable weather!

These are some of the measures we will take to minimise risk:

a) There will be a slightly lower capacity in Hall to allow for some social distancing. We may ask you to wear a mask until you have reached your seat, and in other areas where you may be indoors with large numbers of people.

b) We may control the number of people entering the Boathouse if deemed necessary.

The college reserves the right to amend its policies in response to the changing situation and to put in place appropriate measures to manage any risk to our community or the operation of College. We will communicate this to attendees, as necessary.
