Measures you can take if attending MUA in-person

Our priority is to protect our customers and employees. If you are attending our salerooms and offices, we ask that you pay attention to your own personal hygiene. As the government and NHS advice recommends:

  • wash your hands with soap and water frequently

  • use hand sanitiser gel when entering the premises and during viewing and auctions

  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze

  • put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards

  • try and avoid contact with people who are unwell

  • do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean

We also ask that if you have visited one of the specific areas detailed on the government website in the last 14 days you should self-isolate and call NHS 111 whether or not you are showing any symptoms or even mild symptoms. If you have visited MUA within the last 14 days and are subsequently diagnosed as having contracted Coronavirus or have been in close proximity with someone who has been diagnosed, please contact MUA immediately.
