VILLAGE HALL HAS BEEN OPEN FOR BOOKINGS FROM 19TH JULY
THE HALL IS ‘COVID-SECURE’ FOR A MAXIMUM OF 30 PEOPLE
13th October Update
This update is intended to summarise our understanding about hiring the Village Hall under the current Covid-19 guidance and regulation and replaces previous updates. We regularly check a number of sources in order to try to provide the most accurate and up-to-date information for Hall users: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-guidance-for-the-safe-use-of-multi-purpose-community-facilities
Local Covid alert level
Ryedale is currently categorised as “Medium” under the government’s three tier local Covid alert level. Our understanding is that this does not impose any additional restrictions on activities that can take place in the Hall. If this level is raised, then additional restrictions may apply. https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/local-restrictions-areas-with-an-outbreak-of-coronavirus-covid-19
Please ensure that neither you or anyone from your household enters the Hall during a period when required to self-isolate. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance
Hand washing and sanitising
Anyone using the Hall is asked to use sanitiser or wash your hands when entering and leaving the building and at any other time after touching a surface that could be contaminated. There are hands-free sanitisers just inside the entrance and exit. They are battery operated and consume batteries quite quickly, so please let the organiser of your activity know if they are not working.
Maintaining social distance
It is imperative to maintain two metres distance from other people (from outside of your household), whenever this is possible. If at any point you cannot avoid being closer than two metres to someone else, move away to a safer distance as quickly as possible.
Wearing a mask
Generally you must wear a mask inside the Hall. But there are some exemptions.
Some people are exempt from wearing a mask for health or other reasons. Someone who is exempt is not required to give the reason https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/face-coverings-when-to-wear-one-and-how-to-make-your-own
Government rules also allow you to remove your mask when actively involved in certain specific activities. (if unsure please enquire).
“Rule of six”
The application of the “rule of six” to Community Centres and Village Halls is complex. Put simply, some activities are not allowed to take place, some may only have six participants (or six groups of participants, where each group is formed of people from the same household) and some may have more than six participants or groups of participants. Please contact us if you are unsure what applies to your activity. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-meeting-with-others-safely-social-distancing/coronavirus-covid-19-meeting-with-others-safely-social-distancing
Test and Trace
In compliance with the legislation we require that all hirers request and keep a record of contact details from at least one member of every household undertaking their activity. If you are asked for your contact details you are urged to co-operate, however you are not compelled to do so.
The QR code for the Hall is prominently displayed I the entrance hall and foyer. If you have the NHS App on your phone you can log your presence in the Hall by scanning this code.
