Health & Safety

COVID-19 Information for visitors and schools

The safety and wellbeing of our visitors and staff is our priority and we will take all necessary precautions to ensure their continued welfare. As with many businesses, we are actively monitoring the situation regarding the outbreak of Covid-19 (coronavirus) and are reviewing and following the guidelines from Public Health England.  The advice from the health authorities has not changed since the first UK case, so our business is operating as normal and standard terms and conditions on bookings continue to apply.

 

If you are planning on visiting Godstone Farm from an area that has been directly affected by the coronavirus AND if you are showing symptoms similar to those associated with the virus (for example:  fever, cough, breathlessness), we please politely ask that do not visit and instead call NHS 111 for further advice and instruction. For further information, please refer and adhere to the advice given by Public Health England.

 

During your visit, we wish to reassure you that Godstone Farm is taking all possible steps to minimise the risk of contagion, including the implementation of enhanced cleaning regimes throughout the Farm.  Rest assured, we will continue to act quickly should we be required to do so and will take all necessary precautions to protect the welfare of our visitors and staff.

 

There are simple things you can do to help prevent the spread of the virus, including:

–          Covering your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze.

–          Putting used tissues in the bin or flushing them away immediately

–          Washing your hands with soap and hot water regularly (for approx. 20 seconds)

–          Trying to avoid close contact with people who are unwell

–          Avoiding touching your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean.

 

Throughout Godstone Farm we have hand washing stations in convenient locations for visitors, and we politely ask that you use them regularly and particularly after touching animals. With regards to hand washing it is important to note that we do not encourage the use of hand sanitiser gels as a replacement for proper handwashing as only the thorough washing of hands will help to prevent ill health through contact with animals.

 

The majority of activities at Godstone Farm are outdoors, with ample space between other groups/visitors, therefore currently we feel there is a very little risk in continuing with your planned trip. This along with our extra cleaning measures and already stringent protocols means we will currently remain open and welcome our customers as usual.

 

If you do feel unwell during your visit, please contact a member of staff immediately.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
