TMT Coronavirus (COVID-19) Protocols

Given that TMT workshops and events involve physical proximity and bodily contact, we feel it is necessary and responsible to offer a protocol for participants.

Whilst we do not wish to contribute to a culture of fear and separation, or create unnecessary alarm, it is important that our participants are empowered to make informed choices that make sense for them personally and others collectively.

Please take the time to educate yourself and assess your own level of risk and act accordingly. For example, have you travelled to the UK from somewhere with a higher risk of coronavirus?

It is important to remember that the situation is changing rapidly, and you should do your own research and fact finding to keep abreast of the current situation.

 

What to do if you have had cold- or flu-like symptoms or stomach upset within 48 hours of a workshop

If you are experiencing cold- or flu-like symptoms or have a stomach upset in the 48 hours before a workshop, please let us know. We will honour you taking care of yourself and others, and will transfer your place to a future workshop (within one year).

If you arrive at a workshop presenting with symptoms, you will be requested to leave and no refund or transfer will be offered.

The symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19)are:

  • a cough
  • a high temperature
  • shortness of breath

But these symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness.

The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu.

What to do at the workshop

At our workshops we encourage a high level of hygiene awareness and provide hand sanitizer, tissues, baby wipes and latex free gloves as standard.

We recommend the following health and hygiene protocols:

1) On arriving at the workshop, after taking care of your personal items, wash your hands and wrists for at least 20 seconds using soap and water. Hand sanitizer will also be available. Drying your hands thoroughly is essential.

2) Please continue to wash and dry your hands frequently throughout the event in particular:

  • After using the toilet
  • Before and after touching someone
  • Before interacting with the food or drink areas

3) Cough or sneeze into a tissue or your elbow, not your hands

4) Dispose of your own tissues and wipes into the bin bags provided

5) Minimise touching your face (eyes, nose and mouth)
