Covid-19

Our Policy

In response to the current situation, the measures imposed by the government, other recommendations and what we see as common sense, the following policy has been drawn up. We ask all those entering our studio to please read and respect these guidelines.

We have restricted class numbers to ensure that social distancing will be possible in the space available. Windows will be open, in order for the air to circulate. Common areas are regularly cleaned, but you are advised to wash your hands whenever using any common facilities and to minimise use as far as possible.

Before coming to the studio:

  • only come to class if you are in good health and do not have one or more of the following symptoms:
    • high temperature
    • new, continuous cough
    • loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
  • do not come to class if you have knowingly been in contact with anyone who has tested positive for Covid-19 or shown any of the above symptoms in the past 14 days
  • bring in your sports bag:
    • a full water bottle
    • a small towel for cleaning the pole
    • a large towel to cover the warm-up mat, or even better bring your own mat
  • please, as far as possible, only bring essential items into the studio and leave all non-essential items at home or in your car

Upon arrival at the studio:

  • wash your hands with soap or use hand sanitiser gel
  • wear a face mask while waiting for the start of class

While at the studio:

  • avoid close personal contact with anybody who is outside of your social or family bubble
  • maintain a distance of 1.5m from anybody who is outside of your social or family bubble at all times
  • wipe down the pole with alcohol (provided) after each time you use it (when sharing the pole with a second person who is outside of your bubble)
  • only use the equipment you have been assigned to for the class
  • avoid touching any other equipment unnecessarily
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your arm when you cough and sneeze
  • put the used tissue in the bin immediately and wash your hands
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth while at the studio
  • avoid touching any ‘high contact’ areas where possible such as door handles

After class:

  • wash your hands again before leaving, or use sanitiser gel
  • wear a mask when exiting the studio
  • please inform us if you develop any symptoms within a two week period of being in the studio, or if you learn that you have been in direct contact with someone who has later tested positive for Covid-19 within the same two week period or travelled in the last 14 days to a Covid-19 risk area
