Face coverings must be worn when inside Lakeside. However, there are several reasons in line with Access and Equality that would mean individuals cannot wear face coverings.

Below is a list of face covering exemptions:

  • Children under the age of 11
  • If you have a physical, neurological, mental or emotional condition that means you cannot put on, wear, or remove a face covering
  • If putting on, wearing, or removing a face covering would cause you severe distress
  • If you are travelling with, or providing assistance to, someone who relies on lip reading to communicate
  • If you are entering Lakeside to avoid injury or escape the risk of harm, and you do not have a face covering with you
  • If you need to remove it while at Lakeside to avoid harm or injury or the risk of harm or injury to yourself or others
  • If you need to eat, drink, or take medication you can remove your face covering
  • If you are asked to remove your face covering by a member of staff
  • If you require First Aid assistance or need to signal for urgent assistance from staff
