Brighton Holistics COVID-19 Information page
Updated on July 6th 2021
You would have heard within the Prime minister’s Covid-19 Statement on July 5th that the wearing of masks is probably being relaxed as of July 19th. This is due to be confirmed on July 12th.
I would however like to make it clear that whilst attending Brighton Holistics masks will still be required to be worn even after this date. Professor Chris Whitty, Chief Medical Officer for England stated that he would wear a mask in the following situations:
– Any situation indoors and crowded, or indoors and with close proximity to other people
– If he was required to by any competent authority
– If someone else was uncomfortable if I did not wear a mask, as a point of common courtesy.
Sir Patrick Vallance, Chief Scientific Advise added:
– Masks are most effective at preventing somebody else catching the disease from you. They have some effect to prevent you from catching is as well. The situation you’re most likely to catch COVID in is indoors, crowded spaces so that the obvious place where mask-wearing becomes an advantage.
The World Health Organization still advises that masks continue to be mandatory on public transport, in shops and in crowded places.
With these statements in mind, Brighton Holistics will still insist that masks are worn within the treatment room. We have a responsibility and a duty of care to you our learners, to our team and to ourselves.
We also still actively encourage all our learners to continue to take a Lateral Flow Covid-19 test before they arrive on a training day, to help reduce the spread and the risk of everyone in the group needing to take time off work to self-isolate. We ask that you continue to be respectful of others by continuing to wear a mask and take a test before arrival at Brighton Holistics.
We would very much like to thank you for your understanding and continuing support in this regard.
This page will provide you with all the information you will need while attending a course at Brighton Holistics regarding Covid-19, during the current pandemic. You will be able to refer to this page during your training to help and advise you on hygiene, PPE and alterations you will need to make during your training and case studies. You will also find the Brighton Holistics health and Hygiene policy regarding Covid-19 which must be followed by anyone attending Brighton Holistics.
Please take the time to read this page to familiarise yourself with all the information contained within.
Brighton Holistics Health & Hygiene policy – Please click here. This may change following Government guidelines.
Attending a course or tutorial day at Brighton Holistics.
We require all learners and models to wear a type 2 surgical facemask, not just a face-covering during their time with us, but please note that PPE will not be provided to learners or models for the course. Before your first practical day with us, you will be sent a copy of our Hygiene Policy which you must agree to, sign and return to us before attending your course. If this is not completed, you will not be allowed to attend your practical day with us at Brighton Holistics.
We have been asked what happens if someone is exempt from wearing a mask. I’m afraid our priority must be the safety and security of all our learners and team members. If you are exempt from wearing a mask you will need to defer your course until face masks are no longer a requirement. We are not discriminating or singling anyone out but, are looking after the safety of all. Not wearing a mask potentially puts other learners and the Brighton Holistics team at risk. We are extremely sorry if this causes offence or upset, however, we must follow the government guidelines and think of the safety for everyone who attends Brighton Holistics.
Please remember that we have also been affected by this dreadful virus, and we are doing everything possible to accommodate all our learners. We ask that you be understanding of this and as much as possible, allow some flexibility.
