Take this opportunity to plan ahead and have a conversation with your family, friends and neighbours to see how you can help each other if required. Consider how you would access food? Who would walk your dog? Who would pick up your prescription? And can you work from home?
Call our COVID-19 helpline on (01983) 823600 for support with food and medicine. They can help if you don’t have a support network around you.
Some extra measures will be in place to allow visitors to use the museums safely, including additional cleaning and hand sanitiser stations at regular intervals across the sites.
You will need to wear a face covering, unless exempt, sanitise your hands and maintain social distancing. One-way routes will be in place and not everything will be open. For instance, many ‘hands on’ activities and exhibits will not be available.
Many of the attractions will require advanced booking.
