You will also find our self-isolation and quarantine FAQs helpful.
If you self-isolate with symptoms of coronavirus or a positive test result, your flatmates must contact quarantine for 10 days from when your symptoms began. Please call, message, or email your flatmates to tell them this and refer them to our contact quarantine instructions at bit.ly/contactquarantineERHHM.
You may leave your room only for the following reasons, as infrequently as possible and returning to your room without delay:
No one else should enter your room unless it is to help in an emergency.
It is important to tell us your test result immediately, because this will guide our decisions about contact tracing and quarantine.
Please order food and other essentials online, for delivery to your hall, instead of going out shopping. You might find THIS LIST of delivery companies useful. Find out how to receive deliveries whilst in quarantine HERE.
You must wear a face covering over your mouth and nose at all times when outside your room.
Keep a safe distance of at least 2 metres from other people at all times.
Take care to wipe down all surfaces and other items in the shared bathroom before and after you use them, using the disinfectant wipes provided.
We will collect waste from your room every Tuesday and Friday morning, as well as leaving you with a new supply of bin bags. The housekeeping staff will knock on your door and stand back, leaving a trolley or bin outside the door. Please put your waste into the bin or trolley. If the staff knock and there is no answer, the collection will be attempted on the next collection day.
If your symptoms get worse, you should seek medical advice by calling NHS 111. If it's an emergency and you need help immediately, then call 999 for an ambulance. Any emergency care, including an ambulance, is always free of charge on the NHS.
After making the call for medical advice or help, please phone the reception desk in your hall and ask them to inform the duty Manager or duty RA that you are more unwell.
The police and public health authorities have powers to detain and/or fine individuals who do not comply with this guidance.
