Following the Governments announcement moving to Step 4, I am gradually gaining information from governing bodies on how to safely move forward with my face to face classes from 19th July I will also take onboard everyones feedback 🙂
Although restrictions are lifting, I as the instructor want to maintain a high duty of care for you and for myself. I want people to feel positive still about coming to my face to face classes, without questioning, “is it safe”?
Common sense and the general guidance from the governing bodies are continue doing as we are doing !!! So I will be making very small adjustments to my risk assessments …
Points to highlight …
Social distancing/class bookings – The capacity limits for indoor facilities are no longer in place, but we have been recommended to take a sensible approach to prevent overcrowding and allow space for those who wish to maintain some degree of social distancing. So I will need you to continue booking weekly and I will keep the dots for guidance. Good news it will give me a little more flexibility in some venues where I have been restricted!
Ventilation – poor ventilation is still a huge factor in keeping our classes safe, so fresh air ventilation is one of the best ways to reduce the risk of transmission indoors. So I will continue providing good air flow at the venues I teach at and hope the warm weather continues. I will of course re-evaluate as we move forward.
- Face Coverings – People have never been required to wear face coverings while taking part physical activity, but face coverings in enclosed areas when not engaging physical activity has been encouraged. So please individually decide if you want to wear one in enclosed spaces but it is no longer a legal requirement.
- I will continue to get people to complete my COVID questionnaire and ask you not to attend my classes if you have any coronavirus symptoms or have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19. More information on self-isolating and getting testing can be found on gov.uk.
