Staying Covid-19 Secure in 2020
Cheeki Monkeys are committed to creating a safe environment, we have taken reasonable steps to protect our event organisers, stallholders, event attendees, venue staff and others from the risks of coronavirus.
We have carried out a comprehensive risk assessment and put in place a number of guidelines and measures which will be reviewed and updated as necessary. This document demonstrates how as a business we are acting in accordance with the latest UK Government guidance and working to ensure the safety of all involved with our events.

COVID-19 CUSTOMER RESPONSIBILITY/GUIDELINES
All bookings are on the basis that the customer will, at all times, observe the safety regulations set by the event organiser and adhere to safety instructions where given by the event organiser.
All customers should take responsibility for their own safety and that of any under 18’s accompanying them.
All customers should attend on their own where possible. Do not bring young children who would find social distancing difficult.
All customers should respect the environmental responsibilities of the venue and other customers and follow any social distancing measures, single-direction traffic systems and one out-one in policies in place at the venue.
Event attendees should respect the limits on gatherings for indoor venues which are limited to members of any 2 households (or support bubbles).
On entering and leaving the venue everyone should wash their hands thoroughly for at least 20 seconds using soap and water or use hand sanitiser if hand washing facilities are unavailable. Follow the Catch It, Bin It, Kill It campaign to help prevent the spread of the disease. Always carry tissues and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Germs can live for several hours on tissues. Dispose of your tissue as soon as you can in the bins supplied.
NO ONE should attend the event if they have symptoms of cough, fever, high temperature, sore throat, runny nose, breathlessness or flu like symptoms now or in the past 14 days prior to attending an event.
NO ONE should attend the event if they have been in close contact of a person who is a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 now or in the past 14 days (i.e. less than 2 meters for more than 15 minutes altogether in 1 day) prior to attending an event.
NO ONE should attend the event if they have been advised by a doctor to self-isolate at the time of the event.
Prior to the day of the event, stallholders should freshly launder all clothing items, all other items should be wiped down with anti-bacterial wipes.
If you can, you should wear a face covering in enclosed public spaces where social distancing isn’t possible and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet, such as a community facility. This is most relevant for short periods indoors in crowded areas.
Evidence suggests that wearing a face covering does not protect you. However, if you are infected but have not yet developed symptoms, it may provide some protection for others you come into close contact with. If you have symptoms of COVID-19, you and your household must isolate at home; wearing a face covering does not change this.
Face coverings do not replace social distancing. Even if a face covering is used, staff, event organisers and users of the space should continue to wash hands regularly and maintain social distancing. If users of the space choose to wear one, it is important to use face coverings properly and thoroughly wash hands before putting them on and taking them off.
Please note, a face covering is not the same as the surgical masks or respirators used by healthcare and other workers as part of personal protective equipment. These should continue to be reserved for those who need them to protect against risks in their workplace, such as health and care workers, and those in industrial settings, like those exposed to dust hazards.
Face coverings should not be used by children under the age of 3 or those who may find it difficult to manage them correctly. See a list of individuals this might apply to.
NHS Test and Trace Service
To support the NHS test and trace team respond to any local coronavirus outbreaks, businesses like ours have been asked by the government to collect basic contact details from their customers (name and contact number).
This information will be requested upon arrival. Your details will only be stored for 21 days, in a GDPR safe environment and not be used for any marketing purposes. The only time it will be accessed if requested by the NHS test and trace team. After 21 days your contact details will be removed securely.
Symptoms of Covid-19
If anyone becomes unwell with symptoms of COVID-19 (a new continuous cough or a high temperature) at the venue they should go home and be advised to follow the stay at home guidance. If they need clinical advice they should go online to NHS 111 (or call 111 if they don’t have internet access). In an emergency, call 999 if they are seriously ill or injured or their life is at risk. They should not visit the GP, pharmacy, urgent care centre or a hospital.
Other people who may have been in contact with a person who has become unwell should wash their hands thoroughly after the interaction, but they do not need to take any other specific action unless they develop symptoms themselves or are advised to do so by NHS Test and Trace. If they do develop symptoms they should follow the stay at home guidance.
