COVID-19 FAQ: Can I use the hall garden?

By Adrian 19 Jul 2021

If you are in self-isolation with symptoms or a positive test

Please do not go out to the garden if you have symptoms of coronavirus or have tested positive for COVID-19. You should stay in your room as much as possible. If you smoke regularly, we recommend buying nicotine replacement products (e.g. gum or patches) for the period of your self-isolation. Going out to smoke is not an allowable reason to leave your room during self-isolation with symptoms or a positive test.

´╗┐If you are in travel quarantine or contact quarantine

You may use the hall garden area, during the normal opening times for that space. You must: 
  • wash or sanitise your hands immediately before leaving your room and again when you re-enter the building from the garden area;
  • wear a face covering the whole time you are out of your own room (including when outside);
  • go straight to and from the garden, not using any other social areas or visiting other residents;
  • keep the time outside your room to a reasonable minimum;
  • not have face-to-face interaction with anyone else;
  • not socialise with other garden users.
