COVID Safety Protocol

Safety is still a priority and despite the encouraging signs of decreasing Covid cases and hospitalisations, the pandemic is still morphing and around us.  For this reason, we are requesting that EVERY PARTICIPANT be required to conduct a lateral flow test and present a -ve test result within 24 hours of attending our workshop.

We are aware that the science and guidance on this is constantly changing as we transition to a new normal with Covid. But at this stage, we still feel it’s important to know that you are safe and keeping others safe too. 

Failure to conduct a Covid test of any kind will mean you will not be able to participate in this workshop. 

We will be encouraging group mixing and contact.  You are welcome to participate with your mask on or off and we will be encouraging judicious use of hand sanitiser and maybe being a hand towel in case you get hot and sweaty.
