How many confirmed cases of COVID19 at your uni would it take before YOU refuse to go on campus, to your lectures, seminars, workshops, tutorials, etc.

Ngl, I'm not sure.
there has been 80 confirmed cases at my uni and im still going in, however, as someone who is diabetic, severely asthmatic, and a weakened immune system (im a commuting student), i dont really feel safe anymore with that many confirmed cases. was wondering wht number of confirmed cases at ur uni it would take until you'd refuse to go on campus and attend uni

My uni has hundreds of cases and I’m still fairly happy going in (although they’ve actually paused face to face for a couple of weeks). The classes are all socially distanced small groups with masks, and I feel they’re fairly low risk.

The people who are shouting the most in group chats about how dangerous in person classes are, seem to be the people who were posting party pictures on social media in freshers week and plan to ignore local lockdown rules :rolleyes:

****, mine too. With your vulnerabilities, I would stay well away. You should call student support about this.

No, because you catching COVID would not just be you getting sick it could be life or death, and some university lectures and seminar events that could and are being done online are not worth risking your life for. It is far too precious to gamble with.

A bit of a cough, slightly dry throat and a bit of a fever/weakness. On the other hand; it seems to not be affecting me very badly compared to some common colds. I've not yet booked a test; I'm away from where I live atm cause I've been on a training course for work

I don’t know how your conditions affect you so I don’t really want to answer.

FWIW I also have a chronic illness and take steroids so my immune system’s not great, but I’ve kind of developed an attitude of “I just want to live my life while I can”. Like sometimes I can’t go to class or see friends because I’m in hospital or too ill, so I try to make the most out of the times when I can do things, even if that’s a bit risky.
