o all of our valued clients,
Given the announcement from the Alberta government on Sept. 15th, we at Harvest Yoga Studio have made the decision to participate in the Restriction Exemption Program in order to continue our ability to run in-person classes. Not participating in this program would mean that we would have to close, so please know this is not a decision we take lightly. Below are the requirements of us and our clients in order to remain open.
How to attend in-person classes:
Option 1: Effective Monday, Sept 20th, all persons wanting to participate in in-person classes must provide a ‘Proof of Vaccination’ record. If you’re not fully immunized, if you provide proof of single dose, that will be acceptable until Oct 25th, at which point both doses will be required. PLEASE NOTE: Proof of a single dose is only acceptable if it’s older than 2 weeks before the date you’re hoping to attend class. Eg. If you get your first dose on Monday, Sept 20th, the first date you’re able to attend class is Monday, Oct 4th.
Option 2: If you are not vaccinated, and choose to remain unvaccinated, you must provide a negative PCR or Rapid test that is no older than 72 hours prior to the class
Option 3: If you have official documentation of a medical exemption, you can provide this to us in place of proof of vaccination or negative test results.
Other things you need to know:
If you are already vaccinated and can provide us with proof of vaccination before Monday, September 20th, you’re welcome to do so.
Masking will still be required in the studio until you get to your mat. Mats will remain 2m apart in the room.
If you’re feeling unwell, please do not come to the studio. Get a test, and isolate until you get a negative test result. If you need to ‘late cancel’ a class registration due to isolation requirements or illness, you will not be charged the $22 no-show fee. Please email or call to let us know this is the reason for a cancellation so that you do not get charged.
We are still asking those coming to the studio to keep your distance from others while in the hallways/changerooms and to pracitce good hand hygiene.
We know that these circumstances are far from ideal for everyone involved, and we understand that choosing whether or not you get vaccinated under these circumstances is very difficult. If anyone needs to reach out in regards to their membership, or any confusion about the requirements, please don’t hesitate to email us at email@example.com
