Covid-19 Safety Measures

unnamed (1)

At Co-Decode we take the safety of our visitors and colleagues very seriously.
We have implemented a number of Covid-secure measures to ensure we operate in a responsible manner.

Changes from 19th July 2021
Although lockdown restrictions are easing, safety remains a priority for us and so most of the operational changes we have made at our venue will stay in place (such as enhanced cleaning after games, staggered game times, and provision of hand sanitising stations).

FACE MASKS: From 19th of July the indoor wearing of face masks is no longer required by law in England, but it is still recommended. Our staff will be wearing face masks and visitors are required to do the same during our face-to-face briefings before and after the game. Once inside the game room we recommend that masks continue to be worn, but we will no longer be enforcing this. Our new ventilation system is capable of 3 full air changes per hour, continually pumping in fresh outside air and mitigating the risk of any potential Coronavirus aerosols.

Team bookings

  • The maximum permitted team size is 6 players. 
  • As usual, all game bookings are private – it is only ever you and your team in the room together.
  • Game times are now more spaced out and staggered to prevent two different teams arriving at once.

Face masks

  • Visitors aged 11+ are required to wear a mask during face-to-face briefings before and after the game (unless medically exempt).
  • Once inside the game room, mask wearing is recommended but will not be enforced.
  • Games hosts wear face masks and maintain a safe distance. In-room story briefings are now delivered via pre-recorded video.

Ventilation & hygiene measures

  • Brand-new mechanical ventilation system, capable of 3x full air changes per hour, to remove airborne Coronavirus aerosols.
  • Visitors are expected to use our alcohol-gel hand sanitising stations before and after their game.
  • Enhanced cleaning is taking place between each game with a special focusing on touch-points. Communal areas are also disinfected regularly.

Please also take note of the following Covid-19 safety measures:

  • If you or any member of your team is displaying any Covid-19 symptoms, you MUST NOT visit. We can re-book your game for another day at no additional charge, subject to availability and with at least 12 hours notice.
  • To support NHS Test and Trace, each team member over 16 years old will be required to sign in using the NHS app (by scanning our QR poster) or provide their contact details to our staff prior to entry. These requirements may change after 19th July and will be updated accordingly.
  • Teams should arrive at the time stated on their booking confirmation email or no more than 5 minutes beforehand.
