Kashmeera Gorecha, Broxtowe Council Communications Team writes: The Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government has published guidance for those managing community centres, village halls and other community facilities on safely re-opening multi-purpose buildings.
The government will allow community centres and other multi-use community facilities to open on 4 July.
Managers of community facilities will have discretion over when they consider it safe to open for any activity permitted by legislation and may decide to remain closed if they are not able to safely follow the advice in the relevant guidance to make the space coronavirus secure.
The guidance covers some key considerations for safely reopening community facilities, such as:
• Social distancing and capacity
• Hygiene and face coverings
• Vulnerable people
• Track and trace
• Travel and parking
Advice is also provided on the permitted activities in multi-use community facilities, with links to relevant guidance for each use. The guidance also provides information on enforcement.
