Our Covid-19 Policies

To ensure that Infinity Circus comply with Covid-19 government policies the following changes have been made to the running of our company:

 

  • All staff are required to wear their face masks when performing roaming entertainment in high traffic areas indoors. During performances where social distancing is difficult due to performance area size and during workshops outside where the instructors are needing to be in proximity to participants such as stilt walking, peddle-gos and tightrope.

 

  • All staff are required to always have hand sanitiser on their person and to be used frequently throughout the day. During circus workshop activities such as stilts, peddle-gos and tightrope where hand to hand contact is necessary for safety reasons hand sanitiser is to be used before and after EVERY individual.

  • Stilt walkers are required to always wear their masks when indoors and outdoors in areas of high public congregation and non-ventilated areas. Hand sanitiser is to be carried upon their person and used frequently throughout the day. High fives, handshakes and other hand contact with the stilt walkers is prohibited and social distancing is to be always maintained. The public and performers are to keep to the recommended social distancing guidelines when posing for photographs and interacting.

 

  • Circus workshop arenas will now need to be larger to ensure social distancing. Hand sanitiser stations are to be placed at the arena entrance with instructions for everyone to use BEFORE they enter the arena. Workshops will now run on an hourly rota for public events to ensure that social distancing rules are followed appropriately. There will NOT be a booking system unless required by the event organisers, instead once the maximum number of participants have entered, the arena will then be closed off with the time of the next hourly slot displayed. Smaller, more localised, events will be run as a come and go attraction as usual with regular cleaning being done throughout the day.

  • All equipment both public and personal is to be wiped down with an anti-bacterial cleanser by staff members before and after every event and after every hourly slot within the workshops. There will be a half hour break between each hour to ensure correct cleanliness is followed. For private and smaller events, equipment will be regularly removed from the arena, wiped down and placed back out ready for use again with a Cleaning Logue present within the gazebo at events.

 

  • If any staff show signs of Covid symptoms they are to isolate for 10 days, and replacement staff are to be assigned. In the unlikely event that no replacements can be found, or multiple staff need to isolate a full refund of the deposit will be given. Every staff member attending the event will need to take a Lateral Flow Test 24 hours prior to the event start time to ensure that we are safe to work.  

  • If lockdown restrictions are tightened once more meaning that your event cannot take place, we will hold your deposit until a replacement date can be made even if that date is the following year. If requested, we will of course refund the deposit however that will mean that your event will not be held against another potential booking for the same date and instead will resume our first come first served basis. Those that hold their deposit will get priority booking over any other events.

  • We understand that policies and restrictions have the potential to change at short notice and we will be as flexible as possible however we do ask that our clients be patient with us whilst we change our policies and working conditions accordingly. In busy periods it may take us a little longer to get in contact, but we will make sure we get round to everyone and thank our clients for being understanding.
