Third Circle Recordings
COVID-19 Policy

At Third Circle Recordings we are following government advice carefully to ensure that we are all kept safe during the Covid-19 pandemic:

Although we cannot take any rehearsal sessions until the national lockdown is lifted, we are open for business for recording and production services, albeit with a strict cleaning routine, limited capacity and a commitment to helping keep the public safe through encouragement of social distancing, mask wearing, and hand washing. If you have any specific concerns about visiting the studio, please email
and I will happily work with you to ensure that you feel safe and protected at all times.


A full risk assessment of the studio has been carried and provisions put in place in order to mitigate any risk of transmission. When visiting the studio you are asked to observe the following guidance. Please get in touch if you have any questions, or may not be able to abide by any of the protocols below:

First and foremost, if you are sick, stay home. We will happily reschedule your session without penalty.

If you have been diagnosed with Covid-19 (ever), please let us know immediately, and let us know when you received the positive result.

Masks are required when moving around the studio.

We request that you wash your hands regularly.

Musicians should set up and try to stay at least 1m away from each other, and from engineers and other users of the studio. 

Please use the toilet area conscientiously. Recommendations stipulate that you do not touch your mask or face in the bathroom and wash hands thoroughly with warm water and soap for 20 seconds.

 

Certain sites around the studio have been noted as “multi-touch” surfaces, meaning they are possible vectors for transmission due to multiple people touching them during a regular day at the studio (door handles, faucets, shelves, etc., etc.). Consider sanitising or washing your hands before and/or after touching these surfaces. Hand sanitiser dispensers are distributed around the building so that you can sanitise accordingly.

We will be regularly disinfecting pop filters and vocal mics, and providing a “reset” period of a day between use. Any musicians requiring mouth or facial contact with their instrument itself will follow this procedure.

Thanks very much, and please do get in touch if you have any further questions.

James.
