Updated Guidance

The Scottish Government has updated its Bookbug guidance (through the Scottish Book Trust).

- It is suggested that parents or carers who are booking to attend a Bookbug session take a Lateral Flow Test (at home) prior to attending.

- Face coverings must be worn at all times unless exempt (children under 12 are not required to wear face coverings but may choose to do so)

- Please do not attend a session if you feel unwell or are a close contact of someone who is unwell and has yet to get results of PCR

A few things will be different about this session in order to keep our staff and all families safe:

  • Our hosts, Pentland Community Centre, have some Covid Regulations in place. The usual distancing in both halls and rooms will apply and masks must be worn when not in your group area. There is a limit of two people at a time allowed in the Ladies and Gents. The kitchen area will be closed until further notice and no items in the kitchen area can be used.
  • Booking with Eventbrite is essential and your details will be securely held on Eventbrite for Test and Protect purposes.
  • Hand sanitiser will be available on arrival.
  • Windows and doors will be opened for ventilation, so you may want to bring warm clothing or an extra layer.
  • While at the session please follow good hygiene practices (avoid touching your nose, eyes and mouth. Cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue and dispose of it safely).
  • In the event the session is cancelled, you will be contacted via email.
  • Plastic seating will be provided for parents and carers
  • Please do not attend the session if you or your children display symptoms of Coronavirus.
  • Adults will be asked to remain 1m socially distant throughout the session (we use chairs to help with this). Children are not required to remain socially distanced during the session.
  • We are following advice in line with the Scottish Government's guidance on Singing, Music and Drama as part of Early Learning and Childcare Services, as well as Scottish Book Trust's guidance on the resumption of Bookbug Sessions.
