Reopening Guidelines – 21st May 

Last week the UK Government announced some changes to the lockdown restrictions to control the spread of Covid-19 Coronavirus in England. Whilst it may be a while until live gigs happen again, we are still open to work with solo artists, session musicians and voice over talent, as well as mix and master your music.
The rehearsal room remains closed, we will let you know as soon as we feel it’s safe to allow rehearsals again.

Traveling to and from the studio

The government has published detailed guidance on travel to and from work which is available here

In brief summary the guidelines state that:
– When traveling in taxis or private hire vehicles follow the advice of the driver. For example, you may be asked to sit in the back left hand seat if travelling alone. You may want to check with your taxi operator before travelling if they have put any additional measures in place.
– If driving, you should anticipate more pedestrians and cyclists than usual, especially at peak times of day. Allow other road users to maintain social distance, where possible. For example, give cyclists space at traffic lights.
– Consider all other forms of transport before using public transport. Travel may take longer than normal on some routes due to reduced capacity and social distancing measures. Allow sufficient time if your journey involves changes between different forms of transport. There are some circumstances when wearing a face covering may be marginally beneficial as a precautionary measure.

Managing Risk

We will be cleaning and sanitising any equipment used, and all touch point surfaces after every session to keep everyone involved safe.
It is important to understand that no amount of measures can completely eliminate risk. The goal is to mitigate risk to an acceptable level. We will be doing all we can to protect our clients.

Social Distancing

Because of the size of the studio, we are able to implement social distancing, maintaining a 2m distance between clients and staff wherever possible.

Hygiene

It remains essential to keep hands and face as clean as possible. People should wash their hands often, using soap and water, and dry them thoroughly. We are encouraging all visitors to the studio to wash their hands on entry and exit. Other measures we have put in place include: frequently cleaning objects and surfaces that are regularly touched, such as headphones, microphones, pop filters and door handles. We will also be limiting the use of high touch items and equipment such as microphones and stands / musicians may only handle their own equipment.
