Our guidelines for reduction of spreading of infection
- Stay at home if you have any symptoms of respiratory infection of other illness.
- Keep a distance of at least two metres from other visitors. Do not enter the building if it is crowded. Try later instead.
- Avoid touching surfaces
- Wash your hands thoroughly and regularly.
- Follow our staff’s intructions.
Those of you that have visited us before know that our buildings are small and narrow. We will have to be inventive and adaptable to avoid crowding on sunny days and we need your help to stay open. Please be understanding and patient if you have to wait for service or change your plans for the day. If we all pull together, we can keep our distance, stay safe, and stay open. Thank you!
