***July 2021 update***
Full training may now be resumed by students of all ages! However we still have safety measures in place at the academy. *********** The safety of our students, parents and
instructors is a priority here at AEGIS. Please make sure to fully read this guidance before attending your classes. Signs and Symptoms The NHS currently identifies common symptoms of COVID-19 to include: High temperature over 38˚C, new and persistent cough, loss of taste or sense of smell These may be signs an individual has been infected by COVID-19, and it is vital that you do not attend the academy if you or anyone you have been in contact with recently is displaying any of the above symptoms General procedures to ensure safety
Wash your hands – regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with soap (for minimum of 20 seconds) and an alcohol-based (minimum 60% ethanol or 70% isopropanol) hand rub. Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.
Respect personal space and maintain a safe distance wherever possible
Avoid touching hands to face, mouth or nose - Hands touch many surfaces and surface to hand transfer can spread the virus. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth.
Catch it, bin it, kill it - Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze.
At the academy
Ensure that you (or anyone in your household) are not showing positive COVID-19 symptoms. If you are, do not attend class and please follow the government guidelines for self-isolation and testing. Inform us via email immediately so that we can instigate any track and trace protocols if necessary.
Currently class attendance is controlled by mandatory class booking. Students who arrive late for class or have not booked will not be permitted into the academy under any circumstances.
Any persons entering the academy, either student guest, will be required to comply with our safety measures which include (but are not limited to):
Use of hand sanitiser
Optional but recommended: use of masks
The entire academy will be sanitised before and after every class, and deep cleaned at the end of every training day.
We look forward to relaxing these measures however will only do so when we feel it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we thank you for your cooperation and compliance with our policies.
