Accessing our sites (updated 17th Mar 2021)

Following the Prime Minsiter's national address (4th Jan) with the announcement of the national lockdown in England, everyone must 'stay at home'. Our sites will only remain open and operating in a COVID-19 secure manner for those for whom it is not possible to work effectively from home.

If you require access to Thornton Science ParkRIC or NoWFOOD, you must email: commercialoperations@chester.ac.uk with the subject line “Access during lockdown” to inform us of dates and staff numbers. This will allow us to resource and staff site operations appropriately. You MUST also have a test to have access to our sites.

Any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact us: commercialoperations@chester.ac.uk

Reporting cases of COVID-19

As always, please also inform us if any of your staff develop any symptoms (new continued dry cough, temperature or loss of taste/smell) or test positive for COVID-19. You must not access our sites if you are feeling unwell or if you are required to be self-isolating.
