NOTE: U3A CLOSED Wed 15th — Fri 17th Feb
New carpets are being installed in Room 4. Due to the disruption, noise and dust that this will cause, we have to close the Box Factory for the 3 days above. Please note these dates in your diary.
COVID Policy Update
The Board has decided that, consistent with practice across the community, the requirement for people attending at the Box Factory to be vaccinated will no longer apply from 1 January 2023. In taking this decision, the Board draws the attention of members to the advice from government health officers that vaccination is strongly recommended; for our members this will generally mean that four doses are received. While vaccination cannot guarantee protection from contracting COVID, it is clear that it can reduce the impact of the disease if you do catch it.
The Board has also reiterated an earlier decision that mask-wearing is no longer mandatory.
Again, members should consider their own circumstances when deciding whether or not to wear a mask. Factors to consider are the ability to maintain a social distance, the level of ventilation/air low at locations where you are, and consideration of the needs of others.
Finally, please do not attend courses if you are feeling unwell, particularly if you have any flu-like symptoms.
