Pett Village Hall: Exercise Classes and Face Coverings

As already posted, from 8 August it will be a requirement for people using Pett Village Hall to use a face covering.

But there is confusion about whether this requirement will also apply to people whilst they are actually exercising in an exercise class. The Government has confirmed that there is currently no requirement for people exercising in a gym to wear a face covering  whilst actually exercising.

Pett Village Hall Management Committee have given careful thought to this issue, and have decided that the following will apply:

Until told definitively otherwise by regulation, Pett Village Hall Management Committee will NOT require people to wear masks when actually exercising in the village hall, but will ask them to wear them at other times, eg when entering or leaving the hall. All other users must wear a face covering at all times from 8 August.
