An Update on Covid Confident Reviews
Since 2013, Euan’s Guide has been helping disabled people find great places to go. Of course, since lockdowns were put in place this year, we focused on making sure disabled people feel safe and entertained at home by creating the Euan’s Guide Forum, which you can visit here. As lockdown restrictions are beginning to ease across the UK, we wanted to make sure that disabled people’s voices were heard as venues began to make changes that aligned with differing safety measures. Our Covid Confident feature for reviewers shows how important clear and up to date access information is for disabled people, or anyone that wants to know what precautions have been put in place to help stop the spread of COVID-19. We want to thank everyone who has submitted a review so far, and to venues who have updated their Covid information too.
In the YouTube video below, our Communications Intern and Euan’s Guide Ambassador Kayleigh explains how important Covid Confident reviews are to her when she is planning to go out and about again.
Recent Covid Confident reviews
Here are just a few examples of places people have recommended because of their good disabled access and appropriate Covid safety precautions:
A recent quick review of the Tea Rooms at the Pet Cemetery in Wales explains how helpful staff were, and what the hygiene standards are, when Percyuk1 visited.
In her review of Manna House Bakery, LIrwin describes the queuing system that is put in place to keep everyone safe when they order to take away or sit in.
TangoGolf16 reviews the accessibility and safety precautions of the trail and visitor centre at Whinlatter Forest Park and gives them 4 stars. They describe the one-way system that has been put in place at the entrance.
The review of Riverside Farm from RaeHewitt shows that they felt Covid Confident whilst visiting as the eating area was very clean and there were markers around the venue which clearly explained Covid precautions and directions.
We've selected three great examples of venues who have updated their listing to include information on their new safety measures.
Homelands Trust in Fife has updated their Covid information to reflect the key changes that are put in place to protect staff and visitors as it opens again. They now deep clean between each guest and installed hand sanitizing stations in each lodge.
Moat House in Annan has also implemented a stronger cleaning routine at each changeover to help stop the spread of Covid-19.
In Lymington, Our Bench Accessible Self Catering Cottages has updated their Covid information to explain they have completed the Visit England “We’re good to go” award. They are aware that disabled guests may feel more vulnerable than others and are happy to talk about any concerns.
