As concern increases over the spread of Coronavirus, I have had a number of enquiries into the measures we are taking for Backwell Playhouse.  I want to reassure you that we are taking this very seriously and are keeping Backwell Playhouse as clean and safe as possible.
There is plenty of hand wash for use in the toilets and public sinks (please make use of before your children enter class) and boxes of tissues to be disposed of in the bins provided. Relevant posters are around the theatre to support and guide on best practice. In addition there is a video on the Playhouse foyer monitor with advice and guidance.
At the moment my understanding is that there is no clear rationale for ‘closing events’ and unless a specific scenario develops, the government encourages business as usual.
I have posted a link on the home page of my website that gives up to date data regarding Coronavirus in your area.  Please click the link to access this information.  I have also attached information regarding advice on preventative measures and who to contact should you have concerns.
If you feel unwell please stay at home and rest.  Perhaps we may even get rid of the attitude of ‘it’s just a cold’ and allow ourselves to rest up and get properly well.  The body is intelligent, it will tell us when we need to stop.  We just have to listen.
Please be assured I will continue to monitor the situation to make sure we are taking the necessary precautions to protect you all and my staff alike.
Thank you for taking the time to read this message, please take care of yourselves.
Very best wishes
