Covid-19 Considerations

We all need to play our part, to keep us all safe. Here are some of the measures in place at the Allendale, relevant to the Minster Market:

  • Single public entry point – public entry to the Market is via the main front entrance.

  • Face coverings mandatory, unless someone has an exemption.

 

  • Hand sanitiser – there's a sanitising stand at the entrance and everyone is strongly encouraged to use this.

 

  • One-way system – signed one-way system to help with social distancing and avoid pinch points.

 

  • Signage – 'Keep your distance' etc. signage throughout the building.

                                                                                                                                     

  • Toilets – each block of toilets has a lock on the main door and is accessible by one person at a time. Within each block there's a dedicated female and a dedicated male cubicle. Where multiple sinks are in the toilet block only one is available, to allow focused cleaning.

  • General cleaning - the Centre is cleaned daily, with antibacterial products used throughout.

 

  • Tables, chairs and door handles sanitised regularly – once tables and chairs are set up, they're sanitised ready for use.

 

  • Airflow – subject to weather conditions, we aim to have room windows and doors open for airflow, with heating in the colder months.

  • A screen is used at Reception to protect our staff and volunteers.

  • A volunteer is present to manage entry to the Market, if necessary, to avoid excessive queuing or crowding.
