COREhealth takes the current restrictions seriously; to prevent spread of COVID 19 / SARS CV2 there is both a risk assessment and an action plan:

It is the responsibility of the Lead Coach to ensure the various measures and recommendations are adhered to during Tai Chi indoor sessions. While these reasonable precautions are taken to minimise the chance of infection, all students take part in classes at their own risk.

This is a risk assessment has been prepared to help reduce the LIKELIHOOD that Tai Chi classes will spread the Covid 19 Virus should a student or coach become infectious. It presumes that NOTHING can be done to reduce the Severity of the Impact should an infection occur as that is in the hands of the treatment centres, The impact of a COVID 19 infection always remains as a 4 (high).
