Dear customer, this is how we are helping to prevent the spread of the coronavirus

Here at the Culture and Leisure Division, we value your and our employees’ health above all else. This is why we are asking you to comply with the following instructions, which we also abide by, when visiting us:

Even mild flu symptoms are a good reason to stay home
If you have any symptoms of flu, i.e. a runny nose, cough, sore throat, headache or fever, please stay home.

We wash our hands
The best way to avoid contracting the coronavirus is to wash your hands. That is why we are asking everyone to maintain good hand hygiene. Hand sanitiser and hand washing stations are available in our premises.

We maintain safe distances
The virus is highly contagious in close contact. If you see that there is a line to our cash or information desk, please wait a moment and make sure to keep a safe distance from the person in front of you.

We cough and sneeze properly
Cover your mouth and nose with a disposable tissue when you cough or sneeze. Put all used tissues in the rubbish bin immediately. If you do not have a tissue, use the top of your sleeve. Cleaning has been intensified.

We are now paying heightened attention to the cleaning of our facilities and the cleaning of different surfaces in particular. The situation is being actively monitored.

We are constantly monitoring information issued by the authorities in relation to the coronavirus outbreak and will inform our customers of any changes to coronavirus guidelines without delay.

Thank you for your cooperation!
