Updated 10th. December 2021

Full details are on the gov.uk website HERE

As a result of the Omicron covid variant the Government have imposed new regulations.

Ringshall village hall is covid compliant and guests should observe and comply with the information posted in the hall.

Government announced the tightening of selected Regulations, on 8th December. The first of these to come into law relates to face coverings. These changes were introduced to Parliament on 9th December and became law on 10th December.

Face coverings Community Centres (Village Halls) are now explicitly included in the list of places where face coverings must be worn unless the individual has an exemption. The responsibility is the individual’s not the building owner or organiser of an activity.

Singing The Regulations permit the removal of face masks for singing in the following situations: as part of a choir, service, performance or rehearsal for a performance.

Next steps in Plan B The overall intention of Plan B for village and community halls is explained in the following extract from the government general public announcement. As previously, references to theatres, cinemas etc can be regarded as referring to plays, pantos and films.

“From Friday 10 December, face coverings will become compulsory in most public indoor venues, such as cinemas, theatres and places of worship. There will be exemptions in venues where it is not practical to wear one, such as when you are eating, drinking or exercising. For that reason, face masks will not be required in hospitality settings.

The one way system within the hall remains and should be adhered to wherever possible.

Good ventilation should be provided, ideally by opening the french doors.

Hirers of the hall should continue to sanitise frequently touched surfaces before and at the conclusion of their event.

These recommendations will be updated as we receive guidance from Acre.

All users of Ringshall Village Hall are required to comply with our covid conditions of hiring (Appendix E) in addition to our standard conditions.
