  • Hygiene:​​

    • NO lesson if either party ill, use “assessment” below for each lesson

    • cough or sneeze into sleeve or tissue + avoid touching face

    • hand sanitizer, tissues + garbage can provided in-car

Cancel lesson if instructor or client sick for ANY reason. Use assessment questions below:

1. Are you experiencing any of the following:

  • fever, chills, cough, sore throat, painful swallowing, stuffy or runny nose/eyes, headache, muscle aches, fatigue, loss of sense of smell, loss of appetite, rash?

  • difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, speaking in single words, chest pain, hard time waking up, feeling confused, losing consciousness, inability to lie down because of breathing issues?

  • any chronic health conditions or difficulty managing these due to breathing?

2. Have you travelled in last 14 days? Where to? Where from? Conveyance used?

3. Have you provided care or had close contact w/ anyone sick or “COVID-confirmed”?

4. Has any public health official ordered you to self-isolate or quarantine?

5. Please explain your “bubble” & extent of your social activities...the risk is never zero

Cancel lesson if “yes” to any questions 1 through 4, use common sense to judge answer #5.
