COVID-19 Secure Events at the Design Museum

As we navigate through the challenges the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has presented, the Design Museum is carefully following government guidelines to deliver its activities.

What can businesses do?

We are taking the following steps to reduce the risks of COVID-19:

  • We will carry out a specific COVID-19 risk assessment for every event.

  • People should not come to the museum if they need to self isolate (if they have been asked to self isolate by NHS Test and Trace; are required to isolate after travel; or because they are displaying any COVID-19 symptoms (a high temperature, new and persistent cough, or a loss of/change in sense of taste or smell), even if these symptoms are mild.

  • We encourage everyone to use hand sanitiser when they enter the building and wash their hands regularly. We provide sanitiser points at the entrance points and throughout the museum.

  • We encourage everyone to continue to wear a face-covering in crowded or enclosed spaces.

  • We continue to display an NHS QR code for customers wishing to check-in using the app, to help to reduce the spread of the virus and protect customers, suppliers and staff.
