Village Hall Covid-19 Update (24th June 2020)

The latest Government guidance on the further easing of coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions from 4 July 2020 gives more details than yesterday lunchtime’s announcement from the Prime Minister.  It would appear that “The government strongly advises against community centres opening for indoor fitness and sport activity.  Further guidance coming soon.”

The Government has announced that Nightclubs are to remain closed and have issued guidance to pubs & social clubs regarding playing of music:

“All venues should ensure that steps are taken to avoid people needing to unduly raise their voices to each other. This includes, but is not limited to, refraining from playing music or broadcasts that may encourage shouting, including if played at a volume that makes normal conversation difficult. This is because of the potential for increased risk of transmission, particularly from aerosol transmission. We will develop further guidance, based on scientific evidence, to enable these activities as soon as possible. You should take similar steps to prevent other close contact activities, such as communal dancing.”

The Village Hall would not be surprised if this guidance appears in the guidance for Community Centres, which hopefully will soon be issued by the Government.
