Safety Guidelines at Standpoint

  • It is not necessary to book an appointment to visit the exhibition, however in order to manage the visitors’ flow only ten people will be allowed into the gallery at any one time.
  • You may have to join a small queue but we will be doing everything we can to ensure this is as short a time as possible.
  • We are asking all visitors to maintain social distancing measures when visiting.
  • We request that all visitors wear face coverings when visiting the gallery to protect our staff and others. Face coverings are mandatory for all visitors except those with health and breathing issues, and children under the age of 11, in line with government guidelines. We do not provide face coverings, visitors must bring their own.
  • There will be increased cleaning of Standpoint including toilet facilities, door handles, rails and other areas throughout the building.
  • There will be a hand sanitising point at the entrance of the gallery for your use.
  • Any children must be supervised at all times.
  • In order to help reduce the risk of a local outbreak we are asking for contact details of all visitors. In line with guidance issued by the government, we will keep your details for 21 days. We will only share them with NHS Test and Trace if asked, in the event of a fellow visitor testing positive for coronavirus.
  • Risk assessments have been carried out for both staff and visitors. These are regularly reviewed and take into account the latest guidance from the government and Public Health England.

We look forward to safely welcoming you back to Standpoint.
