We're pleased to announce that the National Jazz Archive is re-opening from Monday, 13 July 2020.
This follows the temporary closure over the past few months in line with Government Guidance around Covid-19. Following a safety risk assessment that takes into account the on-going issues with Covid-19, mitigation actions have been identified by the archive and approved by the Loughton Library manager.
This includes the following newly introduced safety measures, which will apply to all visitors:
- Visitors will only be admitted by pre-arranged appointment;
- The maximum number of individuals in the room at any time is restricted to 4;
- Hands must be sanitised upon entering the room. Sanitiser is available. (Wearing a mask is not obligatory);
- 2 metres social distancing must be observed so far as practicable throughout the building;
- Face to face contact in the Archive room is limited to 15 minutes;
- Any items brought into the room for the Archive must be placed on the clearly marked ‘Quarantine Trolley’ as per the instructions on the trolley. Similarly, with any items that require refiling after use.
To make an appointment, please contact the archive by telephone or email using the details contained in our contact page.
Our staff and volunteers will be happy to answer any questions regarding these new rules and look forward to welcoming you to the archive.
