Almost all the COVID restrictions have now been lifted at the Atkins Centre as there is no longer a requirement for social distancing or wearing a face covering in an indoor setting.  We will however continue to ensure that all rooms are well ventilated, ensure there is more regular cleaning and encourage regular hand washing / use of hand sanitiser.

If for any reason you have not taken up the Covid-19 vaccination, or remain clinically vulnerable, we would advise the following:

• TKAT employees who have disclosed non vaccination status should make us aware of any additional control measures that they need in place in order to stay safe.

• Other visitors should disclose any additional needs related to Covid-19.

If you experience any of the main COVID symptoms, you must not attend the Atkins Centre and arrange for a COVID PCR test. You should then follow Test and Trace/Government guidance.
