Health and safety information

We continue to prioritise the safety of our staff and visitors at our sites. Our current practices will remain in place after 19 July, to maintain reassurance and comfort for staff and visitors. This will be regularly reviewed and any changes will be communicated on our webpages.

It is important that we keep all our visitors, staff and volunteers safe. When attending Little Dragons, adults are politely asked to:

• Arrive at the Oriental Museum 5-10 minutes before the session starts and show your booking information to the front desk staff who will guide you to the session.

• Please wait outside until you are permitted to enter the building by a member of staff (be prepared for all weathers)

• Remain socially distanced on arrival, during the session and when leaving the session. Museum staff will facilitate this.

• Wear a mask or face covering, unless you are exempt.

If you are in an area where the new variant of Covid is spreading, Government advice says “you should avoid travelling in and out of affected areas unless it is essential". A list of areas this applies to can be found on the Government coronavirus restrictions website.
