The situation regarding Covid-19 is that it is now largely accepted as a background risk in much the same way as flu, for example, although it does carry greater risks than flu especially for those people with other health vulnerabilities.
Individuals can reduce the risk of catching and passing on COVID-19 by:
At Jo Roberts Pilates:
We recommend that everybody should continue to bring their own mat, resistance band and, if possible, weights. This is to reduce the risk of transmission between people.
The decision to attend a studio-based class remains entirely with you. Zoom classes will continue so choosing not to come to the studio will certainly not exclude you from participating.
It is of course important that anybody who proposes to attend a studio-based class is not exhibiting any symptoms of illness whatsoever, whether these be the ‘classic’ Covid-19 symptoms that have been well publicised, or indeed milder symptoms, since people exhibit differently. This is especially important since later variants have been reported to cause no more than cold-like symptoms in some people.
Jo Roberts Pilates will reserve the right to refuse entry to anybody who is believed to be exhibiting symptoms.
When registering as a member you will be asked to formally accept that the risks associated with Covid-19 cannot be entirely eliminated in a studio-based class, however diligently any specified controls are applied by Jo Roberts Pilates.
Attending a studio-based class will, therefore, be at the clients’ own risk. *
