RRC Covid-19 update

Dear Members and Friends

From 5.30pm on Friday 31st July until Monday 17th August (inclusive) the RRC will be closed for staff holidays and training and we will not be checking emails or messages via social media.

From Tuesday 18th – Friday 28th August the RRC will be open at both Centres for RETURNS ONLY. Please note we will be open for REDUCED HOURS of 10:00-12:30 and 1:30-4:00.

All items currently on loan have been extended until 28th August.

From Tuesday 1st September the RRC will be open 5 days a week for LOANS and RETURNS as usual.

Safety measures will be in place to protect our members and staff. These include:

· Sanitising facilities at each site on entry and exit

· Social distancing – around the issue desk and the resource areas

· Protective PPE – staff will have masks and visors, all members and visitors are asked to wear a mask or visor in the RRC

· Restricted numbers at any one time (to preserve social distancing. This may lead to a small delay at some times)

· The temporary closure of study areas at both sites.

· A quarantine period for all returned stock

In all of our plans to reopen the RRC we will be seeking to protect our members, colleagues and ourselves and plans are subject to any changes that may come about from a second wave or any unforeseen difficulties.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Best wishes

Colette, Deborah, Karenza, Kate, Rachel, Sean and Simon
