Covid-19 Safety protocols for hirers
We are working hard to welcome you to Hackney Showroom safely. Our newly renovated space has a high-spec ventilation system and we have introduced enhanced cleaning measures throughout the building, as well as sanitising stations and signage.
You are responsible for ensuring that you and all those involved in your hire are compliant with current Government and NHS Covid-19 guidelines.Please ensure that you and anyone involved in your hire does not enter the building if:
You have had any symptoms consistent with Covid-19 during the previous 14 days
You have had close contact with with or been contact-traced as being in the proximity of someone known to have tested positive for Covid-19
You are currently required to self-isolate for any reason
We kindly ask that all individuals wear a mask when moving around the building and when in communal areas (foyer and kitchen), unless they are exempt.
Please ensure that you adhere to the maximum capacity for each space.
Please wash your hands regularly and ensure that you leave your hire space and any communal areas clean and tidy.
The following protocols are not currently in place. However, we reserve the right to reinstate them, depending on changes in Government and NHS Covid-19 guidelines and the risk level in our area:
Temperature checks for all persons entering the building
A negative lateral flow test result from within 72 hours before entering the building
These protocols may be updated alongside government guidance.
