General procedures

1. Social distancing

Class sizes have been limited to allow ample space between desks. The number of courses being delivered daily has been carefully managed to ensure that social distancing can be respected both in the classroom and in the common areas. Course start times have been staggered to limit the number of people entering the building, breaking for lunch and leaving for the day at any one time. You can help us with this by arriving promptly (not late but not too early) for your class.

During break times, we encourage you to take advantage of the variety of open spaces that are located at the Hotel. If you are unable to go outside due to the weather, we’ll ask you to stay in the classroom to restrict the number of people moving around/gathering in the corridors, stairwells, and bathrooms.

2. Sanitization

The hotel ensures extra sanitization will take place throughout each day of frequent contact spaces including the reception desk, the lift, entrance doors and handrails, bathrooms, tables, and seats. Our team will use cleaning products and protocols which are approved to effectively fight against viruses, bacteria, and pathogens on all equipment and surfaces. We’ll continue to explore additional sanitation tools and stay abreast of the most effective methods and products to use. Where possible, doors and windows will remain open to increase fresh airflow.

3. Keeping our team safe

Our employees will undergo regular training on COVID-19 safety and sanitation protocols. Our team is here to support you, so please feel free to ask any questions throughout your course. All we ask is that you follow social distancing guidelines when speaking to our staff, particularly before and after sessions when there can be a temptation to gather in larger groups.

4. Stairwells and corridors

If you are able, please use the stairs (rather than the lift) when moving around the building, keeping the lift available for those who need it. If you do need to use the lift, please do so one person at a time. Students and staff will be discouraged from pausing for too long on the stairs or landings, to allow everyone to respect social distancing. If you need to cross someone on the stairs, please do so on the landings where there is space for you to keep a safe distance from the other person.

5. Fitness Classes

The classroom has been rearranged to meet social distancing guidelines and our class capacities have been adjusted to reflect this. Upon arrival, please choose a desk and take a seat. Just because you have a desk to yourself, don’t let this stop you from saying hello to the people around you!
