In case you missed it, we've officially been back at the studio since the 25th July! Since then we've had a lot happen, so why don't I explain it all to you? Grab a seat and buckle up for information influx!
COVID-19 safety measures
To ensure the safety of our students and our staff there are a lot of new procedures and rules in place to ensure the best (and safest!) aerial experience. Here's a list of things we've done:
-There's a new Par-Q and Covid-19 Waiver form that need to be filled in and signed before attending any lesson
-Our 24-hour cancellation policy remains the same, however we do have a new sickness policy. If a student were to feel ill or show symptoms in the 24 hours before a class, a credit refund will be issued. However, the student is then required to not return to the studio for 14 days, unless they get a Covid-19 test.
-If a student were to feel sick in the days following being in the studio, they MUST let us know as to enable Track&Trace amongst our students and staff.
-If an instructor deems you to show symptoms of Covid-19, you will be turned away from the studio to ensure everyone's health.
-Guests/vistors are no longer allowed in the studio.
-Minimal baggage is required to be brought to class. You are expected to come fully dressed and ready for lesson, with you own grip and phone.
-Class numbers have been reduced to 1 person per piece of equipment until October, at which point (situation dependent) we will return to full capacity.
-Memberships and discount codes have been put on indefinite hold due to the current situation.
-Our hoops are no longer wrapped to ensure all of the equipment can be safely disinfected, therefore ensuring the safety of all students and teachers. We therefore recommend you wear shorts instead of leggings.
-Spotting will be done if requested by the student, however if you do not wish to be touched the instructor will respect that. The exception to this (as per CIMPSA advice) is that if the risk of falling supercedes the risk of Covid-19, you will be spotted to safety.
-There is now a 15 minute gap between lessons during which the instructors will clean and sanitise the studio.
-No forms of touching are allowed between students nor students and instructors (except spotting).
-Before your class you will be asked to remain outside the studio until the instructor allows you inside. You are expected to follow social distancing when outside.
-Once entering the studio, all PPE must be removed.
-Upon entry you will have to sanitise your hands with the hand sanitiser provided (unless allergic)
-After sanitising you will be given your own personal flanel to use throughout the lesson. This flanel must be dropped into the hamper when leaving.
-There is a one way entry and exit system in place in the studio.
-Use of the changing rooms has been indefinitely prohibited.
-All equipment has been moved (if necessary) to compy with safety distancing.
Phew! That was a long list! Of course these measures are always been checked and rechecked to make sure we're doing the best we can and following Government guidelines. Do you feel like we've missed anything? Comment below or email us to let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
