Covid updates January 2022

Attending classes:

If you attend a class you confirm that:

  1. You do not to your knowledge have Covid 19

  2. You do not have a new or continuous cough

  3. You do not have a high temperature/ fever

  4. You have not experienced any loss of or a change in your normal sense of smell and taste

  5. You are not from the same household with anyone known to have a positive COVID - 19 test

  6. You have not been told to self - isolate

  7. You have not returned from travelling abroad within the last 10 days to any country not listed on the government safe travel list.


From Monday 19th July 2021 there is no requirement for you to wear a face covering into or out of class. There continues to be no requirement to wear a face covering during the class when you are exercising. If you feel more comfortable in doing so please feel free to still wear one. If having members without masks on for entry and exit concerns you please let me know - I am happy to be led by feedback.

Social distancing

With cases continuing to rise I am limiting numbers in my classes to 10 so we can keep with 2m distancing. Classes will only have 10 people in them at full capacity regardless of restrictions lifting. I will continue to teach and observe from the front and side, maintaining my distance from you.

Self isolation:

To add some flexibility to the 6 week course you have 8 weeks to take your 6 lessons. If you are required to self isolate or have another reason why you can not make a class these extra weeks are put in place for that reason.

In the event of a 4th lockdown:

Firstly... let's hope this doesn't happen! However, if we do find ourselves in this situation, classes will transfer to online using Google Meet. It is free to create a Google account or I can give you a login to use. I am happy to advise with technology and wouldn't want this to stand in your way.

If taking classes online is not possible for you your classes will be put on hold and you can take the classes when the Gateway Church is able to reopen. No refunds will be issued.

I would really like to keep the classes going online if/when required 1) In order for you not to lose motivation 2) receive the benefits of a consistent approach to training 3) To be able to support Gateway Church in a period of closure.
