The Humber region moves to COVID alert level ‘High Risk’

As you will probably be aware, from 12:01 on Saturday 31 October all four local authorities in the Humber (East Riding of Yorkshire, Hull, North East Lincolnshire and North Lincolnshire), are moving to the COVID alert level 'High Risk', otherwise known as Tier 2.

There are some restrictions to social activity, but no major changes to business and education as a result. 

However, one of the changes we have made from this date is the introduction of wearing face coverings by all staff, learners and visitors to our centre and training salon, within communal areas and when moving around the building.

This requirement will not apply within offices or training rooms. 

We have made this change in response to government guidance, which advises that when an area moves to the local COVID alert level 'high' or 'very high', in education settings face coverings should be worn by adults (staff and visitors) and learners when moving around indoors, such as in corridors and communal areas.

We have a plentiful supply of disposable face masks available, for anyone who does have one when attending our centre.

We have also updated the guidance provided to anyone visiting our centre, as a result of this change, as follows:

All visitors to the centre must be notified of the centre requirements before their visit, including:

  • Arrive on time for your appointment and arrive alone
  • At the front door please either press the buzzer or call 01472 426624
  • A member of staff will greet you at the door.  Your temperature will be checked and if this is 37.80C or above you must return home and follow government guidelines
  • Your contact details will be recorded and retained for 21 days, to support NHS Test and Trace
  • You must keep any belongings with you throughout your visit
  • We will not be providing drinks, so please bring your own
  • Throughout your visit please refrain from shouting or unduly raising your voice
  • You must follow all instructions to ensure your safety and that of others during your visit
  • All clients, learners and visitors to the centre and salon must wear a face mask or covering on entry to the building and in all communal areas, (we can supply a disposable face mask if you do not already have your own)
  • If any of the following apply to you, please do not attend the centre:

We have made this decision to further protect staff, learners and visitors, providing peace of mind that we are conducting our services in the safest way possible.

Other than this change, it is 'business as usual' for us and we look forward to continuing to work with you. 

If you have any queries, or we can provide support please let us know.
