For your safety we will have strict Covid-19 precautions in place:
- Seamus O’Sullivan is a qualified Infection Control Instructor and will have very strict precautions in place to do his best to ensure the safety of all those attending the course.
- The Training room we will use is a very big room. It has lots of natural ventilation. Natural ventilation is strongly recommended by both the HSE and the WHO (World Health Organization ).
- The maximum number of people that will be allowed on the course will be 12.
- Each person will be allocated their own table and chair and will be kept at least 2 meters apart from each person. Tables will be wiped down 5 times during the day.
- While people are on the premises there will be no sharing of anything allowed , this will help to reduce the risk of spreading the virus by indirect contact.
- Several doors will be wedged back to avoid people having to handle door handles and latches. This is essential and good practice to help to reduce the risk of spreading the virus by indirect contact.
- Mask wearing will of course be compulsory, the mask/face covering must be the correct type of mask (3 ply masks are the best), face shields on their own are not acceptable. You can wear both a mask and a face shield if you wish.
- Given the current situation with Covid, we have decided that we will not serve Tea/Coffee/Breakfast/Lunch on the premises. We consider the risk of picking up the virus by indirect contact is just to high at present. Hopefully in a few months we will be able to reconsider this.
- For your own safety and the safety of your family, you are advised to bring your own refreshments with you and consume same in your car/van/outside area. You don’t want to pick up the virus from the handle of a milk jug etc.
- If you have concerns of any sort (no matter how small), or have any questions, or worries about the precautions we are taking because of Covid-19 or if you have any suggestions to give please send us an e-mail.
