COVID-19 Precautions for in person classes

The government guidelines currently are not allowing in person classes. However, I have had communication from the Irish Society of Chartered Physiotherapists to say that in-person classes can resume, subject to certain conditions.

"Prior to resuming with indoor rehabilitation classes, consideration needs to be given to:

  • Purpose of the class – potential rehabilitation, therapeutic outcomes

  • Limit attendance to those with vaccine protection

  • Limit to provision by physiotherapists with full vaccination protection"

Therefore these classes are currently only available to those who are fully vaccinated. You must provide me with evidence of this prior to booking.

UPDATE 01/09/2021

From 20 September 2021:

Indoor group activities, like sports, art and dance classes, can take place with up to 100 people, provided everyone has been fully vaccinated or has recovered from COVID-19 in the past 6 months. Otherwise, pods of up to 6 people are allowed. The number of pods permitted depend on the size of the venue.

Current protocol

  • The instructor will take your temperature on entering the building.
