Jersey Arts Centre has completed a detailed risk assessment for covid-19 and follows the government of jersey guiding principles for businesses and activities
  • ensure staff and customers are aware of COVID-19 symptoms and do not attend if they are experiencing symptoms or have a positive test result. Anyone with symptoms or a positive LFT result should immediately isolate, request a PCR test and not attend until they have received a negative PCR test result
  • continue to encourage the use of mouth and nose coverings for staff. It is recommended in settings where physical distancing and/or good ventilation cannot be guaranteed, when passing through shared indoor areas, in lifts and confined spaces
  • a clear plan outlining how to manage a customer, staff member or other visitor who develops symptoms or receives a positive test result while in the setting. This should include how they safely seek health advice if necessary and safely exit the setting without putting others at risk
  • maximising indoor ventilation and fresh air exchange or using outdoor spaces. The risk of respiratory droplets and aerosols can be reduced by using mechanical ventilation, HVAC or HEPA systems if fitted, keeping windows or doors open, and avoiding the use of rooms which cannot be ventilated
  • actively promoting cleanliness and personal hygiene measures. This includes use of clear signage, regular handwashing, ensuring adequate availability of hand sanitiser (minimum of 70% alcohol content), and continuing enhanced cleaning regimes with close attention to shared surfaces and touchpoints using EN 14476 surface sanitiser (or similar)
  • encouraging as much physical distancing between individuals and reducing crowding where possible to do so. Maintaining up to 2 meters of physical distancing remains the safest option. It is acknowledged that for many businesses this is not always possible and so space should be maximised where able to do so. This can include using outdoor spaces if available, using floor markers, one-way systems, splitting people into mutually exclusive groups/zones/cohorts, increasing high use facilities if you are able to (for example, number of toilets, break areas), or reducing capacity in some or all areas of the setting. Some settings should also consider how large crowds will enter and exit the area
  • continue to apply measures to prevent staff sickness and protect business continuity. You should ensure you are taking additional measures to protect your workforce by taking part in the workforce screening programme or home testing programme using regular LFTs at least twice a week, encouraging vaccination within your workforce, having a policy if staff become direct contacts, supporting remote working where appropriate, using flexible hours or team working, and strongly recommending the use of mouth and nose coverings in confined or busy areas, or when working face to face with visitors or customers
