Will guests need to wear a face covering at Warner?
The latest Government directive states that face coverings are mandatory in all indoor settings from 8 August 2020. To ensure we comply, all guests will be required to wear face coverings inside public areas around the hotels (reception, corridors, staircases) and for nail and hair treatments and massages. They’re not necessary in bars and coffee shops, restaurants, bedrooms and anywhere outdoors.
There is no legal requirement for face coverings for our team members at work. However, for extra safety, they have been given the choice to wear Government-advised PPE in public areas, for check-in, and when serving food and drinks and carrying out beauty treatments.
When are face coverings not necessary?
Aside from restaurants, bedrooms, bars and coffee shops while eating and drinking and anywhere outdoors, guests do not need to wear a face covering if they have a valid reason not to. This includes (but is not limited to) physical or mental illness or disability, wearing a face covering will cause severe distress, and assisting someone who relies on lip reading.
We recommend that guests print the exemption from face covering badge from the government website as a useful way to demonstrate to others that they are exempt. Learn more about guidance on face coverings
