Covid-19 guidelines

We’re very excited to bring back in-person events but our top priority is to keep our community safe.

The Scottish Government has issued new Covid-19 safety information that came into effect from Monday 18th April which includes the wearing of masks moving from a legal requirement to guidance only. With this in mind, from the 18th April CodeBase tenants, staff and attendees are no longer required to wear face coverings in common areas.

Scottish Government advice remains that mask wearing remains ‘strongly recommended’ and any member of our community or event attendee who continues to choose to wear a face covering will be fully supported in doing so. We ask that everyone respects individual decisions. We’d also ask everyone to respect the personal space of those who choose to continue to wear a mask.We are also supportive of the Distance Aware campaign for people who wish to show others they would welcome additional space and extra care while out in public.

Posters are displayed through the building explaining the campaign, and visitors and event attendees can also collect a sticker from reception with the Distance Aware yellow shield logo.

If you meet someone wearing a sticker, please be respectful of their wishes and maintain a 2m distance.

Hand sanitation stations will remain in place and we encourage people to continue to use these.

If you have any queries or questions, please do ask a member of the team or email #BeDistanceAware

Please note these guidelines might change by the time the event takes place.
