WAIVERS RELATING TO SPECIFIC ISSUES

COVID-19

Following the outbreak of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are doing everything we can to protect you, our other customers, the community generally and our staff. To this extent, we will be following UK government advice with regard to social distancing practices and sanitation. We ask that our customers disclose their health history and help us with comply with our safety practices.

Symptoms of COVID-19 include:

  • Fever

  • Fatigue

  • Dry Cough

  • Difficulty Breathing

I agree to the following:

  • I have not, nor have any members of my household, experienced any of the symptoms listed above within the last 14 days.

  • I do not, nor do any members of my household, believe that we have been exposed to someone with a suspected and/or confirmed case of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

  • I have not, nor have any members of my household, been diagnosed with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) within the last 30 days.

 

If any of the above apply to you, please do not come to the studio for the next 14 days. Following that time, the next time you come to the studio, please provide a medical certificate showing that you are now free from Coronavirus (COVID-19). If any of your memberships, passes or dates for drop-ins have been affected by this, we will extend these on receipt of a medical certificate that we approve.

We are following specific practices to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).  These include but are not limited to:

  • Customers must comply with all social distancing guidelines posted on notices at our venue, communicated by our staff, guidance we let you know of via email or otherwise and all other government guidelines.

  • Each customer is required to wash or disinfect their hands upon arrival.

  • Attendance in each class needs to be booked online on our website.

 

We operate limited class sizes, which may affect the availability of classes on certain days and times.

We cannot be held liable for any exposure to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) at our venue – this could be caused by several factors outside of our control; and despite our best attempts to sanitise our venue and prevent all people from attending our venue who might be ill, it is not possible to guarantee this. 

 

For example, people who attend could be asymptomatic. We live in a world with many viruses, such as the common cold and influenza and it is not always possible to avoid infection with these – we will do our best to make sure you are not exposed, but we cannot guarantee this.

I hereby release and agree to hold the Company (and its directors and employees) harmless from any and all causes of action, claims, demands, damages, costs, expenses and compensation or loss to myself or others,that may arise in any way in connection with attendance at the studio. In particular, I agree to release you from any and all such liability for the unintentional exposure or harm due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Should any person not comply with any of the rules above, or instructions reasonably given by our staff at the venue, we may first give a verbal warning, which may be escalated to a ban with repeated breaches (except in serious cases, when immediate removal and/or banning may be appropriate). At our absolute discretion we will determine whether someone should be removed from the premises or banned from the venue and the length of the ban.  No refunds of any sort will be given.
