Oxford Friends Meeting House: Coronavirus

As coronavirus is hitting the headlines, we wanted to reassure you, our visitors and customers, that we take measures to protect you and your group members and delegates. Our cleaning team follows strict procedures and always aims to ensure that we achieve high levels of hygiene and cleanliness in our meeting rooms, kitchen, toilets and public areas. We would like to kindly remind you that we cannot curtail the spread of coronavirus without your help.

Before your meeting or event:
If you know or are aware that some of your delegates may be coming back from high-risk areas, ask them to call 111 and follow their instructions. If a delegate lets you know they may have coronavirus (symptoms include coughing, high temperature, shortness of breath), they should call 111. You can find more information on the NHS website: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/.

During your meeting and event: 
In the toilets, we have put signs to remind people about the best way to protect themselves and others from the virus:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water, or use a sanitizer gel, regularly throughout the day.
  • Catch your cough or sneeze in a tissue, bin it, and wash your hands with soap.
  • Some groups and individuals are finding other ways of greeting each other without shaking hands.
