1st July 2020
Decorum NI is following the NI Executive’s ‘Pathway to Recovery’, the document of which NI is taking its guidance.
The Committee are monitoring the situation and continue to meet weekly by remote. Only when a decision is made and a date decided on the way forward will the premises be open to members.
The NI Executive’s ‘Pathway to Recovery’, is the document from which the committee of Decorum NI will be taking its guidance https://www.executiveoffice-ni.gov.uk/publications/coronavirus-executive-approach-decision-making . It has been confirmed that Decorum NI will be at Step 5 on the guidelines and it has been agreed that the priority will be to ensure that the members feel comfortable and secure in attending.
IN THE MEANTIME, ALL EVENTS & ACTIVITIES AND DROP IN CENTRE AT DECORUM NI REMAIN CANCELLED AND CLOSED as the government guidelines only allow 6 to meet inside and 30 outside (not those shielding). The only exception to this is the progression of the allotment project where volunteers are working under social distancing guidance with the aim of having it operational by the end of July for the Horticultural group. It is hoped – if nothing changes – that other Personal Development groups will be returning later in August in a very controlled way.
