COVID-19 (coronavirus) update

  • 20 March 2020

This page has been set up to signpost people to the most relevant information about the University and College response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak.

The College is continually monitoring latest Public Health England, government and University advice about the virus. Please be assured that our focus is on managing this situation in the best way possible, keeping the interests, health and wellbeing of our members firmly in the forefront of our minds. 

As of midday on Wednesday 18 March the University has activated the Red Phase of its response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Regular updates about what this means for Caius students, fellows and staff are being sent out by email, and are being posted to The Venn. We ask that Caius members please continue to keep updated with these messages.

Many questions about what this means for next term from a University perspective naturally remain unanswered at this stage but the University will be providing updates as and when the situation evolves. University statements and further advice can be found at

Our highest priority for the Caius community is the welfare of students, fellows and staff. We ask everyone to follow the NHS advice regarding good hygiene practices. To protect our community on site, please think carefully about visiting the College and only do so if you have none of the risk factors listed by Public Health England. 

Please continue to look after yourselves, your loved ones and each other.
