COVID-19 Guidance for all Visitors

The UK Government has announced that from 27 January 2022 ‘Plan B’ Covid-19 measures will no longer be required in England. 

At Halsway the safety of our visitors, tutors and staff is of paramount importance to us, and we consider it essential that we continue to work together to keep everyone safe and happy. We have our own risk assessment in place, and we expect everybody – all visitors, course participants, and staff – to follow the measures outlined below. By working together we are not only helping one another, but also safeguarding the future of the charity.

  • First of all, please do not travel to Halsway if you have symptoms (high temperature, a new, continuous cough, or a loss or change to sense of taste or smell) or if you have been told to isolate.
  • We ask that all visitors – regardless of vaccine status – take a Lateral Flow Test within the 24 hours prior to arrival at Halsway (all staff are testing twice-weekly); do not to travel if your test is positive. 
  • Face coverings are no longer required, though you are welcome to wear one should you wish.
  • Please observe social distancing as a matter of courtesy.
  • Practice good hygiene: Wash your hands / use hand sanitiser regularly. Catch coughs and sneezes in a tissue and dispose in a bin.
  • Ventilation is important. Please open windows and doors in public spaces of the Manor and Mews to encourage airflow. In cooler weather, bring a jumper and be prepare to wear an extra layer.
  • We are running a cashless bar for residential guests; please open a tab and settle-up before departure. 
  • Should you feel unwell or develop symptoms of COVID-19 during your stay, you should self-isolate in your bedroom and contact our Duty Manager on 07843 966224. You should then call Public Health England immediately on 0300 303 8162 and follow their guidance.

We are pleased to have acquired Visit England’s “We’re Good To Go” Industry Standard mark which means that we have followed government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, have a Risk Assessment in place together with processes of enhanced cleanliness.

Our policies and procedures are under continuous review and are subject to change as we monitor conditions and receive guidance from health and government authorities. This page will be updated accordingly.
