Covid-19 Policy and Declaration
Last updated 19/08/2020
Cocoon & Bloom is committed to keeping you, your baby and your extended family safe. Our Covid-19 policy incorporates the most up to date UK official guidance and works in partnership with the venue providers' risk assesssments and own Covid-19 policies.
Where possible, and as described in the venue outlines, entrance and exit routes are taken into consideration, along with open windows and ventilation, hygiene, equipment sterilisation, social distancing measures and the removal of shared equipment.
In all venues, there will be hand sanitiser stations as you enter the building - you must use this as you arrive. I will also have hand sanitiser readily available. All venues have toilet facilities which are open for you to use, and extra cleaning routines have been implemented by the venue owners.
There will be no refreshments provided in Hawkhurst KGV in line with hygiene standards. Classes at Gulliver's Play Cafe can be purchased before and after class.
All venues have extensive cleaning regimes in response to Covid-19 and floors/surfaces/high contact areas cleaned before and after each class. Mats will be cleaned with hospital-grade cleaning wipes after every use. For Baby Yoga and Baby Massage classes I recommend you bring your own blanket/towel for your baby to lie on. For Baby Confidence/ Cake & Confidence classes, please bring a blanket for the guided relaxation.. I would also recommend you bring your own cushion for your comfort, as current guidelines leave me unable to provide them for you. There will be no shared equipment.
Social distancing measures will be put in place in all venues, with your designated area clearly marked upon your arrival. Class sizes have been reduced to allow for social distancing. Only one parent per child can attend Baby Massage, Baby Yoga, and seasonal specials.
Please arrive on time (certainly no sooner than 5 minutes) and await invitation into the venue. If you are early, please can I ask that you waitin the car (if appropriate at the venue) to avoid queuing or crowding around the entrance.
Please limit the amount of personal belongings you bring to class.
Mask usage is an ever-changing guideline at the moment, so you will be informed closer to the time of your class what the requirement is, however the suggested guidance would mean that whilst you were at your 'station' on your mat, you would be able to remove your mask or visor. When moving around the venue, i.e. upon entry, visiting the toilet and when leaving, you would be required to wear a face mask or visor.
If you are unwell, or showing symptoms of Covid-19 YOU MUST NOT ATTEND CLASS and will need to isolate for the recommended time frame as per NHS guidance. Please refer the NHS Covid-19 website https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ for signs, symptoms and advice.
There will be no refunds for missed classes.
Should classes be closed down due to local or national lock-down, they will be converted to online classes via Zoom. There will be no refund for this conversion.
Cocoon & Bloom and partner venues fully support Track and Trace to stop the spread of Covid-19 and therefore will be keeping a record of class attendees, together with names, contact numbers, class dates and times. This information will be securely recorded for 21 days in accordance with Track and Trace guidance, after which time it will be destroyed.
If you test positive for Covid-19, you must contact Cocoon & Bloom's class provider, Henrietta immediately on 07803012084, or by email email@example.com.
Please now sign the Covid-19 Policy declaration below. If you have any questions prior to signing, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your continued support during these uncertain times. Please rest assured that yours and your family's health and safety is at the forefront of every decision made by Cocoon & Bloom.
