Can Serrat covid protocol


 We at Can Serrat have been and continue to follow closely the latest updates and news concerning the ever-changing current events.  For this reason, we have established the following protocol to ensure the health and safety of all without losing sight of our aim to provide a space in which to work and enrich the lives of the community residing within the house.  These guidelines will continue to be updated in accordance with the Ministry of Health of Spain and will include the following measures.

We kindly remind you that in order to ensure the health and safety of all we require the involvement and responsibility of everyone



Before arriving at Can Serrat, it is necessary for all new arrivals to present a negative PCR test, taken within the past 72 hours. We also ask that newcomers observe safety best-practices by wearing a mask at least for the first 7 days in communal spaces.  


Communal spaces:

We remind you that it is important to ventilate rooms and communal spaces from time to time to let fresh airflow in the house.

It is recommended to not share communal spaces with too many people at the same time.  We encourage you to take this opportunity to enjoy the garden and the areas surrounding the house.

We encourage and advise everyone to wash hands with warm water and soap regularly to help maintain the area as safe as possible.

You can find hand sanitizers at the entrance of the house.

For those who have passed through the 7 days without symptoms, the use of masks is optional.  Please note that since summer 2020, we have rented out rooms to those living at Can Serrat for the longer-term.  As CS has become their temporary home and all have already passed the 7-day safety period, many choose not to wear their mask while in the house.  We inform you of this so you are aware of the communal living ambiance within the house. 



When each person has finished using the kitchen for preparing meals and drinks, you must clean up.  Put used dishes and utensils in the dishwasher and disinfect surfaces.



It is recommended to use the cleaning supplies you can find in the bathroom.  We recommend you use them for cleaning the toilets, showers, sinks and faucets after each use.  For additional safety, consider turning the lights on and off with your knuckles or elbows to avoid unnecessary contact with frequently-used surfaces.


What do I do if I think I’m experiencing symptoms?

Inform the Can Serrat staff immediately.

Please isolate by remaining in your room and keep the door closed to avoid contact with others.

If you must go to a communal space, please observe the strictest hygiene measures (gel, mask, physical distance in every room).  Have your phone nearby so you are able to communicate any needs that may arise and so you can maintain contact with your loved ones.

If you experience difficulty breathing or any other serious symptoms, call 010 or 012 or 061 and inform the Can Serrat staff.

In the case you need medication, the Can Serrat staff can help to facilitate access.
