I hope this note finds you well and healthy. With the omicron variant out there, I felt I needed to check in with you about in person classes and make some updates to ensure everyone’s safety.
In order to keep everyone safe, for the time being: masks will be required for the ENTIRE class-no matter distance. Please make sure you have your masks on prior to entering the studio and that it is close fitting to your face at all times. N95 and KN95 are the best, options if you have those available to you. Also, if you have ANY cough, sniffles or congestion, please stay home and switch to virtual. This variant is very sneaky.
I know many of our students/teachers are working with health considerations that put them in the ‘high risk’ category, or they care for an elderly parent or otherwise are practicing extra precautions. All of us are responsible for each other when we are in the same room together.
This latest wave has made many people nervous and as a business owner of a service-the nervousness is exhausting. The actions of us all is what is keeping the doors open and in person classes going-masking is what we all have to do to ensure the continuation of our yoga classes.
I understand the tone of this note is not very upbeat, but I hope that you can appreciate the intent on keeping some semblance of normal going.
Thank you for your help with this, I’m trying very hard not to move all classes back to online, but it takes all of us to do that.
Let me know if you have ANY questions.
