Health & Hygiene in village halls: COVID-19 and beyond

The risk of coronavirus (COVID-19) infection depends on many factors, including:

  • the type of surface contaminated
  • the amount of virus shed from the individual
  • the time the individual spent in the setting
  • the time since the individual was last in the setting

COVID-19 spreads from person to person through small droplets, aerosols and through direct contact. Surfaces and belongings can also be contaminated with COVID-19 when people with the infection cough or sneeze or touch them. The risk of spread is greatest when people are close to each other, especially in poorly ventilated indoor spaces and when people spend a lot of time together in the same room.

This session will cover the general principles of cleaning during the COVID-19 pandemic, where:

  • no one has symptoms, or confirmed COVID-19
  • there has been a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19

The main responsibility for ensuring community premises are adequate, well maintained, suitably equipped, clean and generally up to required legal standards lies with the village hall management committee. It is important that management committees take reasonable care and are ‘duly diligent’ in the management of the hall, especially during COVID-19 and in the future.
