Covid 19 Policy

Coppicewood College will comply with all Welsh Government rules concerning Covid 19 as and when they are introduced.

All persons visiting the College from outside Wales will be advised of the latest Welsh Government rules and asked to comply.

All Students, Instructors, Volunteers and Visitors gain access to the woodland venue by a single-track path.

All persons using this access will be asked to maintain social distancing of 2 m.

The campus consists of open woodland and a large airy workshop; the maximum number of persons in the workshop at any one time is 12.

There is sufficient room to maintain the current social distance of 2m between people.

All people entering the woodland will be asked to maintain current social distancing.

Hygiene

Hand-sanitisers will be in use around the workshop area.

People will be asked to use these in the following situations:

  • Using the compost toilet.
  • Prior to picking up a tool they are using for the first time that day.
  • Prior to entering the workshop.

People visiting are requested to bring their own utensils.

Gloves are needed for many tasks. People should bring their own or take a pair from the College stock to keep for the duration of their course, or in the case of volunteers, for the day of their visit.

Anyone wishing to wear a mask may do so but it will not be compulsory unless the Welsh Government rules change.

Anyone with possible symptoms ie loss of sense of smell or taste, high temperature and continuous cough will be asked not to attend the campus, and if this develops whilst on site will be asked to go home and self isolate/ arrange to be tested immediately.

The nearest testing station is the Carmarthen Showground drive-through.

A log will be kept of all visitors to the campus each day to assist track-and-trace.
