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:
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.
