Lincoln Cathedral certified ‘Good to Go’

Lincoln Cathedral has been awarded the ‘Good to Go’ status by Visit Britain.

The Cathedral re-opened for individual prayer on 15 June, and services for mass prayer began again on 5 July.

Directors are finalising plans for re-opening to tourists.

An announcement is expected in the coming days.

The UK-wide industry standard and consumer ‘Good to Go’ mark demonstrates to visitors that an organisation is following public health guidance in relation to coronavirus.

It confirms that specific processes are in place to safely open to the public.

The Revd Canon John Patrick, Subdean of Lincoln said:

“Over the last four months we have wanted nothing more than to welcome everyone back into Lincoln Cathedral.

“During that time, the whole team have been working hard to ensure that we can do so safely and that the Cathedral is a place of peace, sanctuary and comfort.

“The ‘Good To Go’ award signals to anyone wishing to visit, whether for individual prayer, worship or to take in the beauty of this magnificent building, that they can be confident that we are taking every opportunity possible to ensure their wellbeing.”

Practices and procedures are continually being reviewed by the Cathedral team, in accordance with national guidelines.

Current measures include a one-way system, hand sanitiser stations throughout the building and an enhanced cleaning regime.

There is also a limit on the number of people that can enter the building at any one time.
