Covid-19 reassurance: In class there will be plenty of cleaning, ventilation, individually wrapped refreshments and social distancing for the theory aspects of the course. When seated you will be 2 metres apart so a face covering is optional, a face covering must be worn on arrival and moving around. When practising foot reflexology both learners will require a face covering. When we progress on to hand and ear reflexology later in the course a Type II mask and visor is mandatory (this may change). The college can provide all protection but learners may prefer to bring their own favourite comfortable face coverings and change them during the day. All these details and much more is in the college Welcome Pack that is sent when you have booked your place. This guidance received by the Association of Reflexologists will be followed at all times.
