2021 PARK PRE ARRIVAL INFORMATION

Having considered the Government guidance for step 4 and the current infection numbers, we still feel it best that some measures remain in place as we need to help continue to protect customers and staff on the Park. Therefore in practical terms not too much will change on Monday 19th July 2021. This will be reviewed regularly.

TRACK AND TRACE & NHS TEST AND TRACE

To help support NHS Test and Trace and reduce the spread of the virus if you wish to check in on the QR poster it is still displayed in the poster box outside the shop and in the shop/reception. If you choose to scan the QR code please scan on every day of your stay. If you wish to check in but do not have the app please ask for our paper form.

 

SOCIAL GATHERINGS/ VISITORS / FACE COVERINGS

The more people you have interactions with, the more chance the virus has to spread. The risk of transmission is higher indoors, so you should take extra care to ventilate indoor areas.

Please do not invite or entertain visitors at the Park. No Visitors are permitted on the Park. While cases continue to rise in the area and the Park is at full capacity we have decided not to allow additional people onto the Park. This is to help reduce exposure to our staff, family and customers and to be able to help control use of the facilities. This will be reviewed regularly.

 

The government guidance: “Although face coverings are no longer required by law, but the government expects and recommends that people should continue to wear them in crowded and enclosed settings, to protect themselves and others. Where worn correctly, this can reduce the risk of transmission.”
