Let's keep safe together.
With many of the people who use our services being vulnerable, or young people (who are not yet eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine, we are supporting the NHS Confederation's #NotTooMuchToMask campaign.
The remaining lockdown restrictions in England have lifted and alongside that, legal requirements around wearing face masks and social distancing are being removed. The Coronavirus vaccination programme has been a phenomenal success, and for those fully vaccinated has significantly reduced infection, ill health and death. However, not everyone has received both doses of the vaccine yet and for some, their immune systems still make them vulnerable to infection.
We hope the public join us by doing the following when attending our services:
1. Wearing a face mask or covering, unless exempt.
2. Supporting us as we continue to keep our indoor spaces well ventilated.
3. Cleaning your hands regularly.
4. Getting tested, continuing to Track & Trace and self-isolate when required.
5. Getting both doses of the Coronavirus vaccine when offered.
After all, it is #NotTooMuchToMask.
How we are staying COVID-secure.
Although face coverings are no longer a legal requirement, we encourage you to continue wearing one.
Hand sanitiser is continuing to be available throughout our venues for you to use.
Frequent cleaning using hospital-grade cleaning equipment, proven to kill COVID-19 on surfaces.
Where possible, we are continuing to allow for social distancing at desk spaces at our services.
We are keeping windows and doors open to allow ventilation.
We encourage you to continue to scan the venue QR codes to Track & Trace on the NHS COVID-19 app.
