This is how I am ensuring that classes are as low risk as possible for covid-19 transmission.

Classes will continue to run on the basis that everyone observes the social distancing rules.
Karine discloses that she has not yet been vaccinated. There is no stipulation on whether or not people can attend based on vaccination status. This is personal preference.
All mats face in the same direction so that that no one is face to face with anyone else.
Where possible and dependent on weather, windows will be opened to assist with ventilation.
You must not come to the class if you, or anyone you are in close contact with, has a temperature or any possible symptoms of covid-19.
If you develop symptoms following a class, you must inform me so that track and trace measures can be taken.
If someone tests positive who has attended a class, you will receive an email from the teacher to confirm this and you will then need to follow Government guidelines.
Unless exempt, you must wear a mask whilst in any indoor areas at the centre, and whilst not on your own mat space.
Students must maintain social distance guidelines at all times.
Should the teacher be concerned about a students general health and wellbeing they may be asked politely to leave the class.
West Heath Community Centre has its own Covid 19 Risk Assessment and set of cleaning measures. Should you wish to see this please ask Karine or a member of centre staff.
