Covid-19 Hygiene Measures

Home / Welcome to Peterborough House / Covid-19 Hygiene Measures

The following hygiene measures are in place whilst staying at Peterborough House

In order to operate in a secure environment, we have made a few changes to our guidelines. Please familiarise yourself with these.

General guidelines

  • If at any time during your stay you think you may have coronavirus symptoms, call the helpline immediately: +44 (0)1534 445566 and then report it to the residence caretaker. You can also find useful information on the Jersey government website.
  • Physical distancing of 1 metre should be maintained with anyone from outside your household (especially on public transport) .
  • Wearing of a mask is recommended within confined spaces.
  • There is a hand sanitising station by the front door. Frequent and thorough hand washing and avoiding touching your face are also recommended.
  • Before your arrival, our staff have carried out a thorough clean of your room with regulated products, according to government guidelines.

Communal areas

  • Please use the hand gel provided whenever entering the residence or using the communal areas (kitchen, dining & lounge).
  • Please try to minimise your time in the communal areas. The following limits apply to each room:
    • Dining room (maximum 5 persons, 30 minutes)
    • Lounge (maximum 4 persons, 1 hour)
    • Kitchen (maximum one person or two people from the same household, 30 minutes)

Meals / Laundry

  • You will be allocated space to store your food in the dining room. Please ensure that you clean your hands before and after handling food.
  • In order for the kitchen to be shared we ask that guests keep their time to a maximum of 30 minutes. If the kitchen is busy there is also a microwave in the dining room for preparing hot meals.
  • Please clean your area thoroughly using the disinfectant spray when you are finished. Dirty dishes should be placed in the dishwasher.
  • Please arrange with the residence caretaker if you wish to use the laundry facilities at Fairholme (next door).
