COVID measures

At London County Hall, we have various Covid safety measures in place, including a brand new air ventilation system, large and spacious front of house areas, and more regular enhanced cleaning across the site. You are required to wear a face covering when inside London County Hall.

Our new mechanical ventilation system introduces fresh, filtered air into the Chamber. All air is extracted at roof level, pulling air away from audiences. Used air is extracted straight to the outside and is not recirculated. Filters are changed as part of regular, routine maintenance and we have full control over the air system. Our lobby and bar areas provide audiences with large, spacious areas which are serviced by natural ventilation methods.
