Pie’s Covid-safe summer policy

Posted on: July 28th, 2021 by Steph Dickinson No Comments

We hope you’re all safe and well as we embark on the summer holidays. We’re really happy to be running in-person events and activities again after not being able to last year. Ahead of that, we wanted to share with you what Pie’s Covid-safe policy is over the coming months and what you can expect, to keep everyone safe.

The safety of our young people and staff is our highest priority, always. With that in mind, we’re keeping certain safety measures in place. These include:

Mask wearing
We recommend the wearing of masks during our indoor sessions, even though this is not mandatory. We respect every individual’s choice. There are disposable masks available at Pie HQ at all times, for anyone to use. Our staff will be wearing masks where practicable.

Social distancing
We’re staying mindful with distancing in the set-up of our indoor sessions and recommend that anyone attending our sessions is also mindful of this, as far as possible, for everyone’s safety.

High-level hygiene measures
Covid-safe practices are in place, including regular, high-level cleaning procedures and ventilation in shared spaces. Sanitising stations are situated throughout the building – we encourage regular hand washing and sanitising and proactively mention this in our sessions.

We continue to move mindfully through the lifting of restrictions, widening capacity at events and sessions at a slow pace to ensure that everyone feels comfortable and safe.

We can’t wait to see you!
