Keeping you safe at Short Stay

Short Stay is open! Our top priority at Short Stay is making sure you have a safe stay while having as much fun as possible. We have a COVID-Safe Plan and follow strict safety procedures.

Here’s just a few of the changes we’ve implemented:

  • Health screening for guests before and during a stay.
  • Full assessment of all areas of the centre to ensure we provide ample space for physical distancing.
  • Signage throughout the centre with marking for physical distancing.
  • Additional signage to notify people of maximum occupancy and prevent overcrowding.
  • Increased cleaning at the centre to include a minimum of twice daily cleaning of all high touch surfaces.
  • Increased hand sanitiser points have been installed.
  • Training for staff in COVID -19 and infection control.
  • Support for staff to recognise COVID-19 symptoms and ensure they do not work if unwell.

Tom’s first stay was a great success. He didn’t want to come home. He is already asking when he can go back so I will be in touch about booking him in again soon.
