Laundrette use during coronavirus (COVID-19)

Council laundrette facilities are open as usual. As a tenant or resident, you can use the laundrette under the same terms as normal.

We have physical distancing measures in place to protect you when you are using them.

Follow these steps:

  • dirty laundry that has been in contact with an unwell person should be laundered separately where possible
  • make sure dirty laundry is kept bagged for 72 hours before taking it to the laundrette
  • don't shake dirty laundry to reduce the risk of spreading the virus through the air
  • use the warmest water setting and dry items completely
  • clean and disinfect anything used for transporting laundry as well as work surfaces and door handles
  • ensure you wash your hands thoroughly after handling dirty laundry.
