Here is the explanation of the new hygiene measures that will also be in place:
We know that hand hygiene is the most important factor in terms of mitigating the spread of infection. Therefore, we are doing all that we can to ensure the best possible conditions for optimum hand hygiene in LEGO House with many hand sanitiser dispensers available in all the zones. Moreover, we are encouraging all guests to take care of themselves and to ensure they maintain good hand hygiene.
General cleaning at LEGO House has been greatly intensified to ensure that all surfaces which are frequently touched by many different people are thoroughly cleaned – for example handles, toilets, handrails, check-in stations, debit/credit card terminals etc. We have a permanent cleaning team, looking after the building both during and outside opening hours. In addition, we have introduced clear hygiene procedures for all LEGO House employees.
We use a disinfectant product which is approved by Statens Serum?Institut. All bacteria are killed within 2 minutes. All surfaces are sprayed with the disinfectant product to reduce the risk of infection.
We introduces 72-hour LEGO bricks quarantine. All the brick containers are emptied and cleaned every day before being refilled with bricks which have been in 72-hour quarantine.
