The RAFYC & Riverside House have put significant effort into making our operation COVID-Secure. This has changed the way many parts of our facilities and services are operated. Some of the changed operations affect our members and users and some affect internal operations – enhanced cleaning for example. See sections below for details of changes to operation affecting club users.

All Riverside House users must wear a mask unless they are seated in the bar or are in their workplace

QR codes for use with the NHS Track & Trace app are displayed by the entrances to Riverside House, on tables in the bar and on the terrace. Continued use of this is recommended
