  • Social distancing is still important to keep everyone healthy, so we will ask you to limit the number of people in common spaces at any one time.
  • For your safety, we have added floor stickers showing you the right distances to be apart and reconfigured layouts to maximise use of communal areas, whilst maintaining a safe distance.
