From the 28th of January 2022 the Covid alert level is 0. This is the lowest alert level, but there are still things we need to do to stay safe and limit the spread of the virus. 

TAPE is taking the following key Covid measures for the comfort and wellbeing of everyone coming to our workshops:

What we ask of you:

Please do not attend workshops in person if you are showing any symptoms of Covid.

If you have tested positive for Covid please follow government guidelines and self-isolate.  Please only come back to join sessions in person once you have had 2 negative Lateral Flow Tests (LFTs) 24 hours apart. You can start testing from day 5 of self-isolation.  You can still attend sessions online from home and if you need any additional support whilst self-isolating, please let us know. 

From the Monday the 20th of June you will no longer have to wear a mask whilst at TAPE. We will continue to support you if you choose to wear a mask.

You do not need a COVID pass to come into our workshops. 

What we are doing:

We have set up most workshops to be delivered online as well as at the centre, so that you can join in from home if you prefer to do so or are isolating. 

We are keeping a limit on the number of people in workshops, to help maintain social distancing. 

We are making sure that workshop spaces remain well ventilated.

If government guidelines change, we may change the things we are doing, and the things we are asking you to do.

These are just some of the steps we are taking to keep TAPE safe and accessible to everyone.

Our full COVID Risk Assessment is available here
