We are delighted to create a world-class stage where people make great things happen.
The health and safety of all visitors is our priority. Led by government guidance and supported by industry best practice, we are committed to providing a COVID-Secure environment for everyone, but we’re relying on you to play your part too:
- Wash your hands regularly and practice good hand and oral hygiene
- Wear a face-covering
- Cover coughs and sneezes
- Limit close contact with other people
Although wearing a face covering is no longer a legal requirement, it is still strongly recommended in our venues.
Visitors are asked to maintain social distancing where possible in communal areas.
Hand sanitising facilities have been provided at entry points and key locations throughout the venue.
Our cleaning partner Mitie are one of the UK’s leading cleaning service providers. Their highly trained team is at the heart of our COVID-Secure venue operations, providing an enhanced cleaning service to focus on high touch points with products that meet PHA guidance. We remind our patrons of the importance of washing your hands with soap and water when you can - this is the most effective way of cleaning your hands.
Our toilets will be cleaned regularly as part of our enhanced cleaning protocol, some bathrooms may have capacity limits and signage will be in place to provide direction.
ICC Belfast uses 100% fresh air which is heated or cooled as required by the air handling units to a temperature calculated and controlled by the building management system. Using the principle of displacement ventilation, air is extracted at high levels and discharged from the building. Following the latest guidance, there is no recirculated air used within the ventilation systems. Fresh air will be supplied to all areas at a minimum rate of 10 litres per second, per person. Toilets will be provided with extract ventilation at the minimum rate of 10 air changes per hour. Wherever possible we’re opening windows and doors to provide additional natural ventilation.
