A return to face-to-face meetings?
« on: Fri, 24 Jul 2020, 12:18:54 »
I've been contacted by the Barn with news that they plan to reopen from September 1st, and have been asked if we wish to retain our bookings. Clearly, that is dependent on our membership and its appetite for meetings in person.

If we are to resume meetings, I need to provide the barn with a "risk assessment", although I don't yet know what form that will take.

I believe the Jubilee room that we use offers ample opportunity for social distancing, and as long as we adhere to the government guidance in force at the time and take a register for "track and trace" (such as it is), we'll be OK. I also recognise that I'm probably one of our youngest members and that my perception of the risk may not align with those of the wider membership, so...

Well I've been told not to visit my parents at the start of September for my mother's 80th birthday. So I guess I'm out for September but as soon as the doctors say my immune system would cope I'm game. Would be happy to wear a face mask or anything that would help ;)

Next update I'll get from the doctors will probably be early October.

Nudging this so that it appears with unread posts on the offchance that people will read it and see the poll at the top that's asking for your input.

Only 6 positive responses to date mean that getting back to the barn doesn't look like a viable proposition.
