VAS POLICY COVID-19: AS OF AUG 27 2020
We have been monitoring the situation and advice from all government departments on a daily basis.
Our premise is currently closed due to the Victorian Covid Lockdown. We hope if all goes well we will return to the studio on the last week of Term 3.
All our classes are currently online.
We have also all completed official government certified training to learn and ensure our practices are up to date about Covid-19 for our workplace including a Covid workplace safe plan.
Once we do resume classes inside our premises, as per our rules during Term 1, ALL students and visitors upon entering the studio must use the hand sanitiser at reception and at different points within the studio. All of our rooms are cleaned and wiped after every lesson. We are also have an infrared temperature thermometer where temperatures can be taken upon entering VAS.
We have signage to remind everyone of the restrictions within our entire building.
We also ask that we limit the amount of people in our waiting area. We would prefer where possible that students are dropped off and limit the amount of parents/siblings/visitors waiting in reception in between classes or sit in our courtyard area. The mandatory 1.5 metre distance applies to everyone that comes to VAS during these times.
The welfare of our entire community is of the utmost importance and we are taking all advice in line with the Department of Health as a safety measure. If you develop a fever, a cough, sore throat or shortness of breath or contact with a person with confirmed coronavirus, you should immediately isolate yourself from other people. Contact your GP or your emergency department or call 1800 675 398.
A Reminder to all our team, families, students, studio visitors and children that everyone can protect against infections by practising good hand hygiene and respiratory hygiene. Here are some tips that everyone at VAS can follow
