Coronavirus (Covid-19): advice and updates

In light of the government’s advice yesterday evening and in response to University guidance, I am writing to let you know that the Andrew Wiles Building will be closed from 5pm today, 24 March 2020.This is a final step to restrict any contact between individuals as far as possible. Our research and teaching continues remotely where possible.

This is an unprecedented and challenging time for our University and department community. Please continue to support each other. MI staff and students should also continue to follow University guidance, and check the departmental Covid-19 webpage and their emails regularly.

Mike Giles, Head of Department, 24/3/2020
