COVID guidance (applicable for all Respiratory Communicable Diseases)
Updated March 2022
COVID remains prevalent in the UK and WRCH has a duty to ensure all those entering the building – including audiences, performers, volunteers, and staff – are kept safe. Whilst domestic government COVID restrictions in England have now been removed, we must all continue to take steps to minimise the transmission of COVID and other respiratory communicable diseases.
West Road is well equipped to mitigate against transmission through use of ventilation and provision of sanitiser throughout the building.
We ask all those visiting the building to contribute to our community’s safety by being fully vaccinated where possible and not attending if they feel unwell.
Although not currently mandated, the government suggests that you continue to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces where you may come into contact with people you do not normally meet.
Sanitiser dispensers are located in the foyer and around the building. All visitors are encouraged to use these on arrival and exit.
The concert hall auditorium has a mechanical ventilation system providing predominantly fresh air. We recommend wearing an additional layer in cooler weather!
The foyer and ancillary spaces have CO2 monitors to indicate air quality and natural ventilation that users can adjust.
Official advice on how to stay safe and help prevent the spread of coronavirus is available here.
