Each practice is required plan, prepare and execute a Covid safe business plan, which should cover :
If you’re seeing clients from home there must be a clear delineation between work area and home, otherwise they would be deemed a house visitor and come under domestic scrutiny (different criteria)This is already in place.
No waiting area. Stagger sessions to allow sufficient time between clients (communication to clients, not to arrive earlier), and important to keep to time. This is in place
No glasses or water currently offered in the practice room as this is deemed unsafe. This is in place.
Cleaning / wipe down / disinfect between sessions. Already in place.
Social distancing (Remaining min 1.5 m apart at all times). Practice area must also adhere to the four square meter rule. In place.
Temperature checks and back ground health checks for all clients and employees to logged and recorded. I have a thermometer and can check temperature on arrival.
All clients with any health concerns must stay at home (With no concern about penalty) and session to be provided remotely. Call me and cancel if in any doubt and get tested.
If you would prefer a session via Zoom please ask and it can be arranged.
If a client is from a “Restricted Post Code Area” or should be in isolation, then you cannot see them face to face and remote session is the only option. Currently in place
Use of good hygiene, including clear advice on hand washing and provision of sanitisers is essential. Currently in place.
Contact tracing is critical, so keep good records of all interactions and phone details - I am currently using the COVID SAFE APP
Financial transactions should adhere to social distancing and contactless transactions are encouraged. All financial transaction will be via Funds Transfer as per usual.
Usages of face masks is unclear, as there is section regarding when it prevents clear communication – such as for teachers; however the use of masks is strongly recommended, and is essential when clients arrive and leave. I strongly recommend you wear a mask and I can work with a mask also.
If in any doubt get tested.
Zoom sessions are available for anyone who would prefer to work in that environment
