Wasps Guidance August 2021

Please find below information regarding the latest Scottish Government’s COVID-19 restrictions and how they relate to Wasps tenants and building users. From Monday 9 August remaining Scottish Government-imposed restrictions have been eased. However, for the safety and security of our tenants, visitors and staff Wasps is maintaining some of the policies we have been following thus far.

Regardless of an individuals’ vaccination status, or region’s restriction level, while at any Wasps building we request that the following measures be continued so that all tenants, staff and visitors have the confidence in continuing to use these facilities.

To stay safe, to protect others and to save lives, all tenants, workshop & event organisers, and visitors should follow the FACTS while using Wasps buildings:

  • Face coverings in enclosed communal spaces
  • Avoid crowded places
  • Clean your hands and surfaces regularly
  • Two-metre social distancing
  • Self-isolate and book a test if you develop coronavirus symptoms

Moving through the buildings

  • All visitors and studio users must use the Eve Pass Track and Trace system.
  • Tenants are fully responsible for any visitors they invite into the building.
  • Tenants must escort visitors to studios/workshop spaces in a safe and responsible way.

Wasps also encourage testing twice a week for those using the buildings on a regular basis. You can order free lateral flow tests at www.gov.uk/coronavirus.

Please carefully read and understand this Guidance before you enter the building and ensure that building users adhere to all measures in place. We have a dedicated helpdesk should you have any questions: coronavirushelpdesk@waspsstudios.org.uk

The Scottish Government has published guidance for the creative industries, in particular for providers and users of creative studios in Scotland. You can read this on the Scottish Government website by clicking here. The particularly relevant section for Wasps’ building users is titled Operational Guide for Studio Users.

Wasps’ priority is to continue to provide access to its buildings for you to work in safely. Please note that Wasps adheres to the guidance provided by the Scottish Government, and that this is subject to change, in response to the fluctuating progress in combating the pandemic.

It is important that we have your correct email address, so we can keep you up-to-date with any changes. You can check if we have your correct details by emailing us: info@waspsstudios.org.uk

Wasps staff are operating a blended pattern of working from home and from the office. The office staff remain on hand, either in person or remotely, to respond to your enquiry during office hours, Mon-Fri, 9.30-5.30. During periods where we receive a high volume of enquiries it may take a little longer to respond than usual, so we appreciate your patience during this time.

Thank you for your continued support in keeping our studio buildings open and safe for you to use.
