International House: Creating a COVID-Safe Community

2020 has been a challenging year as the world learns to live with the global coronavirus pandemic. At IH staff and residents are being asked to do their bit to make our community a COVID-Safe living environment. Social distancing and attention to personal hygiene are two of the most effective methods for safeguarding our college.
