Wilstead Village Hall from 10th December 2021

Following the government guidance recently issued, it is now mandatory to wear a face mask at all times when inside Wilstead Village Hall, except when people are about to exercise, perform, sing as part of a service, eat and drink, and for those who are exempt. The Management Committee continue to strongly encourage all hirers and users to follow the government guidance listed below.

Keep a distance from people not from your household or bubble;

Use the hand sanitizer and/or wash your hands regularly;

Use the displayed QR codes to check in using the NHS COVID-19 app, and/or the hirer to continue collecting customer contact details to support NHS Test and Trace;

Keep the hall well ventilated, opening the windows for at least 10 minute sessions during the hiring in inclement weather;

Encourage the use of tissues to trap coughs and sneezes.  “Catch It, Bin It, Kill It,” Additional bins with bin liners will remain in place in the Hall for this purpose;

Disinfectant sprays and disposable cloths will continue to be provided in each area for hirers to wipe over tables before and after use and any surfaces they may wish to do;

COVID-19 continues to be a problem and there is a risk you could catch or pass on the virus, even if you are fully vaccinated. In general, the risk of catching or passing on COVID-19 is higher in crowded spaces, where there are more people who might be infectious and in enclosed indoor spaces where there is limited fresh air.

Please consider the size and make-up of your group and take sensible precautions to reduce the risk of an infectious spread.
