SC4: You will ensure that no more than the current government guideline number of people attend your activity/event in order that social distancing can be maintained. Please also be aware your booking may be cancelled should government guidance change with regards to number of participants or type of event permitted.

SC5: On entering the village hall facility users will be required to wear a face covering, and will be required to keep it on, unless covered under a ‘reasonable excuse’. This could be for a gym class, if users need to eat or drink something, or if they have a health or disability reason to not wear one. Face coverings can be removed if users are undertaking exercise or an activity where it would negatively impact their ability to do so.

  • the name of the customer or visitor

  • a contact phone number for each customer or visitor. If a phone number is not available, you should ask for their email address instead, or if neither are available, then postal address

  • date of visit, arrival time and, where possible, departure time

 

SC7: You will make sure that everyone likely to attend your activity or event understands that they MUST NOT DO SO if they or anyone in their household has had COVID-19 symptoms in the last 14 days, and that if they develop symptoms within 14 days of visiting the premises they MUST use the Test, Track and Trace system to alert others with whom they have been in contact.

SC8: In the event of someone becoming unwell with suspected Covid-19 symptoms whilst at the hall you should remove them to the designated safe area which is the ladies bathroom and then leave the premises, observing the usual hand sanitising and social distancing precautions.
