We can refund your ticket up to 5 days before the event if you can provide evidence of a positive test result or instructions to self isolate if we manage to re-sell the ticket. We will do our best to do so, but cannot guarantee a refund.

Do I need to self isolate if someone who was in the same class tests positive for COVID-19?

No. Unless you have had close contact.

According to the government guidelines you only need to self isolate if you have come into close contact with someone. The environment we provide is covid secure, meaning that if you follow the rules you will not come into close contact with another participant.

Close contact, as defined by the guidance, is when:

You had face-to-face contact with someone, within one meter, including:

Being coughed on

Having skin-to-skin physical contact, or

Been within one metre for one minute or more

Or, you were within 2 meters of someone for 15 minutes or more

Wearing PPE does not mitigate the above factors.

Someone being behind a screen does not count as close contact.

If someone tests positive they must notify NHS Track and Trace, which will inform other people. Additionally we ask that anyone who tests positive lets us know, so we can keep other people well informed.

The final decision about self-isolating must come from you, and given all the information you will need to make an informed decision yourself.

*********COVID 19**************

We have taken every possible step to ensure this class is run safely.

Household mixing is not permitted - please only book tickets for and attend with members of your own household.

Social distancing measures are in place

We ask that everyone who enters Makes premises uses the NHS track and trace app, signs in and wears a face covering, if not exempt.
