Creatively Improving Mental Health

****Service update (Jan 26th)***


From Thursday, 27th January, face coverings will no longer be a legal requirement in any setting. However, the government also "recommends that people wear coverings in enclosed or private spaces, but this will be a personal judgment". Therefore, from Tuesday 1st February our policy will change per these new guidelines.

This change in government guidelines will mean that member's attending the studio are no longer expected to wear masks. Still, as a service that supports a wide range of vulnerabilities and personal views on the subject, we expect everyone to be considerate of others, and if choosing not to wear a mask, then please respect the concerns of others who still wish to, and maintain a suitable distance wherever possible.

Finally, Chilli Studio strongly advises anyone showing any Covid related symptoms to avoid coming into the studio (staff will monitor this and request that they leave), please also follow the government guidance and take a lateral flow test as soon as possible (free tests are available to take home now from the studio, however, do not come into collect whilst having symptoms).
Though we are approaching a safer situation, the risk still exists, and as a community, we will continue to promote a safe and happy space.
