Fuse Coronavirus measures

Lichfield Arts will follow national government guidance regarding the management of safe events in the planning and running of Fuse. We are busy planning Fuse with coronavirus restrictions in mind and will ensure all relevant procedures and precautions are in place by August, in line with national, regional and local authorities guidelines.

We hope that Fuse can go ahead largely without Covid related restrictions in place, and as the situation unfolds closer to the time we will have a clearer idea of how to proceed with the various procedures. However we are sure you will still be able to enjoy a fun filled, fantastic Fuse 2021! With the situation set to change rapidly over the next few weeks our Covid measures are of course subject to change. As things stand our intention is to implement the following for Fuse:

All visitors will be asked to register via Track & Trace before they enter the event.

Entry will be contactless (no physical contact will be made with the general public and no fliers will be handed out).

Social Distancing: Staff and volunteers will follow all safety protocols as directed by the local authority.

There will be managed seating and standing areas where staff and volunteers will monitor adherence to social distancing guidelines.

There will be a one way system in place throughout the event.

Lichfield Fuse Festival will use cleaning chemical that are effective against the Coronavirus with all tables/booths/seating areas disinfected between sessions.

Hand gel will be available onsite.

Contactless card payments will be accepted and encouraged.

Lichfield Arts takes its Coronavirus response very seriously and this included protecting our visitors, performers, volunteers and vendors as much as is possible and within the guidelines we are asked to respect at the time of the event. Meantime, lets all play our part in ensuring Fuse and other events can go ahead with minimal disruption this summer by practising social distancing, washing our hands regularly, wearing a mask where appropriate and respecting the guidelines. Together we can play our part in having a great Fuse this summer and leaving the pandemic behind us.
