COVID-19 STRATEGY

On 5th Jan 2021 England entered its 3rd national lockdown . 

We are sad to say that the studio is closed for member access and for courses until 12th April 2021 but we are in full support of whatever is necessary to prevent unsafe working conditions, pressure on the NHS, illness and death as a result of Covid-19. 

All being well we will re-open the studio on April 12th 2021 with the following strategy in place:

 

  MEMBERSHIP

 

  • We will be limiting the number of members in the building at any one time to 5 members and 1 member of staff. There will be maximum of two people in the glaze room at any one time and 2 people per making table.  This is to ensure that adequate distance between people can be achieved. 

  • We will be changing our opening hours to 24 hour access Tuesday-Sunday. There will be four sessions a day of 9am-1pm / 1pm-5pm / 5pm-9pm and an all night slot of 9pm-9am, all with a maximum of 5 places. You will need to book into the sessions you want online, using the booking system accessed through the "studio booking slots" tab on the website home screen. 

  • Members will be able to open up and close the studio out of staff hours using the key and fob kept in the key safe. The key safe is located to the left of the yoga entrance door tucked around the side of the building. Contact Col for key code.

  • Please do not come in to the studio for at least 10 days if you have any symptoms. 

  • Please bring and wear your own face mask when in the building. 

  • Please wash hands thoroughly with soap and water on arrival and continue to do so throughout your session. 

  • Please thoroughly wash and sanitise any equipment and tools that you use, dry and put back again. there should be nothing left on the drainage board. 

  • Please use your own tools if you have them. If you don't, we have cleaned all tools and arranged tool kits that can be used, cleaned after use and kept on your shelf. 

  • Staff will be sanitising backs of chairs, door handles and taps twice a day. We will also provide wipes so members can wipe any surface they need to, before throwing the wipe away.

  • Please do not come in when there is a course running.

 

 

COURSES AND COMMUNITY SESSIONS 

All courses and sessions will be going ahead again from 12th April 20201 with the same expectations and restrictions as for our Members plus these additional points:

  • Please wear a face mask 

  • Please don't come to your session if you are showing any symptoms. Le us know and we can make arrangements. 

  • Course participants will need to complete a short social distancing induction on arrival at first session. 

  • Maximum capacity for any session is 8 persons for short courses and 10 persons for long courses allowing for adequate social distancing as participants get used to the space

  • Please observe and respect the one way system in place in the studio for movement around the studio.

  • Maximum 3 participants in the cafe area at any one time 

  • If you need to miss your one off session due to the implications of Covid-19, you can rebook your session at no additional cost but no refund can be given. 

  • If you contract Covid 19 whilst on a long course, please notify us immediately as it will need to be postponed for all participants whilst essential self isolation takes place. 

 

 

Any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to ask and I will do my best to facilitate.
