PLEASE NOTE OUR COVID SAFETY REGULATIONS:
If you are feeling sick the day of class or have any symptoms of COVID-19, please stay home.
The building in which our class takes places requires masks to be worn when in the hallway and restrooms. Upon entering Ohm Chiropractic (the classroom space) mask wearing is optional but recommended by the CDC (note their guidelines at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/cloth-face-cover-guidance.html).
Brittany (your instructor) will not be wearing a mask while facilitating in order to be as audible and understandable for all participants. She will remain at least six feet away from participants unless individual participants request otherwise.
Partners will sit together with a six foot distance between others. All participation will be done with a six feet separation.
By attending class in person, you assume all risk associated with COVID-19 that could be attributed to participating in a group setting and in a space outside of your home.
