1. Continue to wear facemasks in all communal areas (corridors, toilets, lift, kitchens) and keep to the social distancing rules that have been in place throughout the pandemic
2. Maintain the current entering and leaving protocols (attendees to wait outside and be collected by the leader on their way in and their exit from the building is similarly to be supervised by session leads)
3. Maintain their communications to attendees warning them about staying away if infected or may be infected
4. Maintain the session registers to be able to respond to Test and Trace if required

5.  Limit the number of individuals in the Kitchens to be no more than 2 in the Crypt Kitchen and 4 in the NC Kitchen

7. Make use of the hand sanitising facilities provided
