At Lighthouse, our priority is to protect everyone's safety. The government has decided to lift most Covid-19 restrictions on July 19th 2021, with cases continuing to rise, we have taken the decision to keep the safety measures in place that we have been working to over recent months. This includes sticking with reduced room capacities to enable social distancing and avoid overcrowding. We will be reviewing this on a monthly basis.

Venue activity is currently limited to business-related events and meetings, whilst we continue to follow Covid-19 safety procedures we cannot accommodate parties, public facing events, events with physical activity, alcohol or loud music/noise.

Our safety measures in the venue include:
• Covid risk assessment of venue reviewed and ratified by external Health & Safety advisor
• Enhanced cleaning procedures, meeting rooms and touch surfaces cleaned and sanitised before each event
• Meeting room equipment sanitised before the event, flipchart stand, pens, tables chairs
• Room formats and occupancy numbers limited to ensure physical distancing of 2 metres
• Hand sanitiser as you enter the building
• Hand sanitiser available in the meeting room and throughout the venue
• Events team trained in Covid safety
• Events team will wear face coverings and take lateral flow tests twice weekly
• The Digital Lounge is in our basement area. The room is ventilated through a system that pulls fresh air in to the room and then back out, the air does not mix or recirculate between other rooms. There are no windows in the room.
• All building occupants are asked to sign up to covid safety charter & contact tracing

The health, safety and well being of everyone inside our building is our top priority. Please get in touch with Emma Wickham, Head of Operations if you have any questions.
