Overview

COVID-19 and council-run facilities

Unless you are exempt, you must wear a face covering in most public indoor venues including libraries and community hubs.

For more information about where else face coverings are required visit GOV.UK.

For your safety, we will be maintaining enhanced cleaning in all our facilities and will continue to provide hand sanitisers for your use when visiting.

You will still be able to sign into our buildings using the QR code for track and trace although this is no longer a legal requirement.
