The safety and health of our guests is our primary focus right now and we are taking all necessary steps to minimise the risk of Coronavirus at Cohort Hostel.
We have a Coronavirius policy in place and believe that: (1) regular cleaning of the hostel (2) encouraging all guests to adhere to good hygiene practises and (3) monitoring the health of our guests will be our best defence.
What we are doing…
Wherever possible we are spreading people throughout the hostel to minimise the number of individuals in any one room.
We are only allowing guests and staff into the building; it is no longer open to the general public.
For educational / group bookings we are closing off as much of the hostel as possible for the duration of their stay, therefore greatly minimising the risk of contagion to that group from members of the public.
We are putting in place hand washing or sanitising facilities in each bedroom.
Awareness posters throughout the building advising guests on best hygeine practices.
On top of our already thorough cleaning procedures we are regularly sanitising all handrails, bannisters and door handles.
A hand sanitiser unit has been installed by the entrance to the building.
Keeping an eye out for any guests who feel, or become unwell.
We have a procedure in place for any suspected cases of COVID-19.
Strict guidelines for staff on how they can protect themselves while on shift.
Keeping up to date on government and Public Health England advice so we can monitor and plan accordingly.
What you can do…
Call 111 if you have been to an effected country within the last 14 days or have been in contact with someone who has had the Coronavirus and if you have one or any of the following symptoms – fever, cough, shortness of breath.
Any guest who has returned from abroad in the last 14 days should avoid coming to stay at Cohort (and self-isolate). We will happily move your booking forward to a later date (see below).
Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds or sanitise your hands at regular intervals throughout the day, especially when you enter a building or before you eat.
Sneeze or cough into a tissue then immediately discard it. Keep tissues with you.
Keep up to date with Government advice – especially if you have been to an affected area within the last 14 days.
If in doubt or you feel unwell then please postpone your stay at Cohort, we are happy to move your booking forward to a later date (see below).
