After Claire Redfield explores the S.T.A.R.S office, she will come across Sherry Birkin being chased by a zombie. The door leading to the Lounge is initially locked though, requires Claire and Leon to find the Precinct Key in order to unlock it.
Jill Valentine also traverses this corridor while trying to gain access to the S.T.A.R.S. office. The door leading to the Lounge is boarded up though and she will only come across a set of Red Herbs near the bench of the door if they didn't appear in the Conference room corridor.
This is the room where Leon and Claire find Sherry for the first time, Sherry runs off upon seeing the duo, there are 3 enemies in this area which are all Lickers. The door to the S.T.A.R.S office can be seen, though it's never entered in the game.
