Our number one priority is the health and wellbeing of our visitors, volunteers and staff. To make sure that we’re doing everything we can to maintain our COVID-secure building, we’ve introduced a number of measures to help everyone stay safe.

Here's what you need to know…

All JW3 staff, volunteers, teachers and presenters are required to show proof of a negative lateral flow test when coming into JW3. This helps us better protect you, our visitors and participants.

Here's how we need you to help too:

Before you visit JW3

All visitors to JW3 aged 18 and over will need to demonstrate their COVID status by providing one of the following, in order to be allowed entry:

  • Either: Proof of a negative NHS Rapid Lateral Flow Test by showing your NHS text message or email, taken within 24-hours prior to entering the building. You must report your test result here. Please do not bring your lateral flow test with you.
  • Or: Proof of full vaccination - both doses received, with the second at least 14-days prior to entering the building.

Proof of full vaccination will only be accepted through the NHS App or by downloaded PDF from the NHS website.

If you are exempt from vaccinations or tests, please self-declare to the team on arrival. 


During your visit

  • All visitors are required to wear a mask in the building
  • All visitors are encouraged to regularly use hand sanitiser which is located around the building
  • We encourage you to register your visit with NHS Track & Trace 

We’ll continue to review and manage any risks and inform you of any changes to our procedures. 

Keeping others safe

Please stay at home if your lateral flow test result is positive, or if you have symptoms of illness such as a cough, sore throat or fever. We reserve the right to refuse entry to anyone who does not show acceptable NHS proof of vaccine, negative flow test or natural immunity.

Access information

You don't have to wear a face covering if there is a legitimate reason why you can't do so.

For example:

  • you don't have to wear a face covering if you can't put on, wear or remove it because of a physical or mental illness, impairment or disability
  • you don't have to wear a face covering if putting on, wearing or removing it will cause you severe distress
  • you don't have to wear a face covering if you are providing assistance to someone who relies on lip reading to communicate.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation which will help us keep everyone safe.
