Christmas vacation travel testing for students

The University is reminding students of the importance of performing LFD tests before they leave for the Christmas vacation. Students are expected to take two LFD tests (and report the results) three days apart, before they leave Oxford– as part of their regular testing. If they test positive in any LFD tests or develop COVID-19 symptoms, they must self-isolate immediately and book a confirmatory PCR test preferably through the Early Alert Service. If that is positive, they will need to stay in Oxford and self-isolate. Students have been notified of this information via today’s Student News; and more detail is available on the student page of the University coronavirus site.

Students have been advised via today’s (29 November) Student News that if they planned to leave the UK during the vacation to a country that has recently moved to the ‘Red List’, they should speak to their college about any changes to their arrangements.
