RULES GOVERNING ACCESS TO DUBLIN CAMERA CLUB PREMISES 2020-21 URING COVID-19 PANDEMIC

 These rules operate and apply to all Club Members until the Covid-19 pandemic is declared over.

 PLEASE NOTE THAT

  • DUBLIN CAMERA CLUB ACCEPTS NO LIABILITY FOR THE HEALTH OR ILLNESS OF ANY MEMBER WHO VISITS OR USES THE FACILITIES AT THE CLUB’S PREMISES AT 10 LOWER CAMDEN STREET, DUBLIN 2 DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC

 AND THOSE ENTERING THE PREMISES DO SO AT THEIR OWN RISK

 

Unfortunately, we have to close access to the DCC building for the foreseeable future (apart from maintenance visits).  A fire risk assessment has produced recommendations regarding the electrics, and we feel it would be irresponsible to allow people to use the building until these electrical repairs have been made.   Thank you for understanding.

Should entry to the building be required for maintenance purposes, please follow the protocol below to minimise Covid-19 risks.

 

  1. Club Members MUST NOT enter the building if they have any symptoms of Covid-19, have tested positive for Covid-19 or are awaiting a test result, or have been in contact with a suspect or confirmed case of Covid-19, within the previous fifteen days.
  1. Unfortunately, due to Covid-19 risks and while we await advice regarding the health and safety of the upper floors, it is not currently possible to use the studio.  However, the darkroom and ground floor may be used according to the protocol outlined below.
  1. Users should refer to current HSE guidelines regarding principles for protection from the Covid-19 virus.  You are asked to follow these rules and the protocol below carefully and to report to Ruth Bridcut (mobile 085 7394932) if there are any difficulties or suggestions.
  1. To ensure social distancing and to facilitate contact tracing, every Club Member or Council Member planning to enter the Club premises, even for a short period, MUST pre-book his/her attendance using the link HEREstating which facility they intend to use (e.g. dark room or gallery).  This allows users to be aware if others will be in the building at the same time and allow appropriate intervals between usage.
  1. To reduce social contacts, a limited number of people should enter the building on any one day. 
  1. In accordance with GDPR, Members are advised that the key fob system records the time of entry and identity of key holders entering the premises.
  1. Having prebooked the use of the building, the Club Member must respect the following protocol:

Conduct during visits to Dublin Camera Club

  • Users must provide themselves with gloves and a facemask and are encouraged to wear them. Hand sanitiser is available at the entry point (through the red side door).
  • The user should take a plastic bag at the entry point and keep it with him/her for holding any waste generated during his/her time in the Club. This must be removed and disposed of safely elsewhere. No waste-paper baskets are available in the Club at present.
  • Following use of the toilet/sink, disinfectant should be sprayed on tissue and used to wipe the sink, the toilet flush handle, seat and the rim of the toilet bowl. This tissue should be put in the user's plastic waste bag and removed when leaving.  The tissue provided for this purpose should not be flushed down the toilet as blockages will occur.  Toilet bleach should be squirted into the toilet bowl.
  • On leaving the building, each item touched, either with bare hands or gloves, should be wiped with tissue which has been sprayed with disinfectant. (items will include work surfaces, taps, toilet flush, door handles and light switches)
  • All waste generated during the visit is to be deposited in the user's waste bags, removed when leaving and can be taken to home waste or put in the street bin outside.
  • Users should apply sanitising hand gel on entering and exiting the building.
  • Should a user of the facilities or a close contact of theirs develop Covid-19, please inform Ruth Bridcut (mobile 085 7394932) immediately.
