Science Oxford and COVID-19 Information
Monday 16th March 2020
Due to the situation with regard to the global COVID-19 outbreak, we would like to reassure you that we are taking action to mitigate risks for those visiting the Science Oxford Centre and for our outreach visits to schools.
We are contacting schools direct who have visits booked to our Science Oxford Centre as well as those with bookings for outreach workshops and shows with up-to-date information. We are also contacting families with tickets booked for our Family Open Days and clubs.
We have done a careful risk assessment of the Science Oxford Centre. Modifications have been made to exhibits to reduce risk and we have a regular and effective cleaning process in place for the Centre. We are screening all our Science Oxford staff according to Government guidance.
We request that all visitors wash or disinfect their hands carefully on arrival before entering the Science Oxford Centre. We have sinks and hand sanitising stations provided at entry points on-site to assist with this. Our staff will, of course, do the same at the Centre and when visiting your school. We also ask that this process is repeated at lunch breaks and on leaving the Centre. Similarly, we ask that you inform us if any of your staff or children at school or family members could be at risk.
If you are a school and would like to change or postpone your Science Oxford Centre visit or outreach booking, or require any further information, please contact us on:
[email protected] (Outreach)
[email protected] (Science Oxford Centre visits)
T: 01865 810 000
For those booking our Family Open Days and clubs, you can cancel your booking via Eventbrite and we will issue a refund. Alternatively, you can transfer your booking to another date using the transfer option.
We would like to reassure you that we are monitoring the fast-changing situation carefully, taking advice from the relevant authorities and regularly updating our risk assessment. We will, of course, update you direct with any changes.
Thank you for your co-operation,
Science Oxford Team.
