Re-opening of the Hall.  Subject to current legislation some groups may now begin to return to the hall. Groups should check with their affiliated National associations (if affiliated) to ensure they are following their associations guidance. Non affiliated groups should research publicly available guidance to ascertain their position in regard to returning.

If partaking in permitted activities users of COVID-19 secure community facilities should limit their social interactions with anyone they do not live with. This essentially means partaking in the specific activity you are attending for and avoiding unnecessary social interaction with anyone in the group who is not a family or “bubble” member.

It is important for all parties to maintain socially distant, 2 metres or 1 metre with actions taken to reduce the risk of transmission (where 2 metres is not viable) between households. For example, use of face coverings and encouraging good hand hygiene on entering premises and throughout the visit. 

On entering and leaving a community facility everyone, including staff, should be asked to wash their hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds using soap and water or to use hand sanitiser if hand washing facilities are not available.

Track & Trace;- Every customer or visitor should scan the NHS QR code using their NHS COVID-19 app and also provide their name and contact details, to their group organiser.  The group organiser MUST use the BMVH log sheets provided for this purpose and leave them in the COVID Log letter box outside the office at the end of their session.

Please feel free to open windows to increase ventilation but ENSURE that they are all closed correctly at the end of the session.
