The Warwickshire COVID Secure Community Pledge is open to those operating community facilities such as community centres and places of worship in Warwickshire to sign up to.

The pledge seeks to promote COVID Secure best practice while providing reassurance to employees, volunteers and visitors to community venues in the local area. The pledge is a reminder of all of the things that should be done, and a way of making a positive statement that the venue is 'COVID secure'.

This is a voluntary pledge, and by signing up to the Pledge, and displaying the poster, organisations are taking a positive step to show that the necessary precautions are in place to safeguard the health and wellbeing of their employees and visitors.

  • Social distancing – measures to maintain 2m social distancing (or 1 metre with mitigating measures if not possible) throughout the premises
