Coronavirus: Notice for those attending our events

3 March 2020

Please find the following notice we have received from the Royal United Hospital staff regarding the coronavirus:

Despite press coverage, as yet there there have been no formal recommendations from Public Health England to curtail public freedom of movement. Participants do need to follow the latest Public Health guidance on their website, particularly if they develop symptoms or have traveled to affected areas listed. Usual good hygiene precautions apply regardless and the venue has good access to hand washing facilities. We suggest that we go ahead, but be mindful of the possibility of late cancellation should the advice from Public Health England change. Ultimately, the decision to attend is a personal one for each participant.

We are currently trying to obtain hand sanitiser to bring to BRSLI, but it is sold out in lots of places at present. If you do have some, we recommend you bring it with you.
