A range of measures have been introduced at access points across the estate to support social distancing. These include the use of managed queues, booking systems, signage and the use of face coverings where it is harder to maintain social distancing e.g. during search functions.

Access to the estate has been restricted to essential business visitors only, which ensures a minimal number of visitors.
