All attendees for the meeting are requested to note that, due to Covid Safety requirements we have put the following measures in place:

 

      All attendees to this meeting are asked to have a Covid lateral flow test 24 hrs prior to the day of the meeting and show the results of a negative test. It’s important that you report the results of your test and that you get confirmation sent to your phone. Reception staff will ask to see this on the day of the meeting. If you have a positive test or if you develop any Covid 19 symptoms - high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste, you should book a test on GOV.UK and self-isolate while you wait for the results.

      You are required to wear a face mask at all times unless you are exempt. Social distancing rules remain in place.
