Guidance on coming to the centre.
Our current advice is not to come to our office if you’ve been in close contact with someone who has tested positive and you’re not fully vaccinated.
You should always check GOV.UK for the most up to date advice on coming to our building.
Key points to remember
1. Do not come to our building if:
you test positive for COVID-19
you have COVID-19 symptoms
you're waiting for a test result
you’re quarantining after returning from travel abroad
you've been in close contact with someone who tested positive, and you’re not fully vaccinated
Contact us directly to let us know to make alternative arrangements.
2. Follow the self-isolation rules
You may no longer need to self-isolate following contact with someone who tested positive, for example, if you’re fully vaccinated. Even if you think you do not need to self-isolate, before coming you should:
get a PCR test
wait for the result
contact us and let us know
3. Take tests if you do not have symptoms
You can take free, rapid lateral flow COVID-19 tests, available in your local area, or to order online. We encourage you to take a test before coming to our buildings to help manage your risks. You can also get a PCR test if you’ve been in close contact with someone who tested positive.
