IMPORTANT INFORMATION DURING THE CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) OUTBREAK:

WE TAKE OUR DUTY OF CARE TOWARDS PARTICIPANTS IN OUR PROGRAMMES VERY SERIOUSLY. AS THE NATION COMES OUT OF LOCKDOWN AND WE ARE STARTING TO OFFER OUR IN-PERSON WOODLAND EARTH COURSES AGAIN, WE HAVE PUT IN PLACE VARIOUS SAFETY MEASURES TO MINIMISE THE RISK OF TRANSMISSION OF DISEASE. PARTICIPANTS ATTENDING OUR EARTH COURSES WILL BE ADVISED OF THESE MEASURES PRIOR TO STARTING A COURSE AND WE WOULD ASK THAT ALL PARTICIPANTS RESPECT AND COMPLY WITH THESE MEASURES. THESE INCLUDE SOCIAL DISTANCING AND MORE STRINGENT HYGIENE MEASURES.

IF YOU ARE DUE TO ATTEND AN EARTH SESSION AND YOU KNOW YOU MIGHT HAVE CORONAVIRUS, OR YOU ARE EXPERIENCING ANY SYMPTOMS SIMILAR TO THOSE RELATED TO CORONAVIRUS (PERSISTENT COUGH, FEVER, LOSS OF TASTE/SMELL) PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND AND CONTACT US TO LET US KNOW SO THAT WE CAN INITIATE ANY NECESSARY TRACK AND TRACE ACTION.

AS WITH ANY ACTIVITY THAT INVOLVES A GROUP OF PEOPLE AT THE MOMENT, THERE IS NO WAY TO COMPLETELY ELIMINATE THE RISK OF CONTRACTING CORONAVIRUS. WE WOULD ASK ANYONE WHO IS IN A HIGHER RISK GROUP FOR CORONAVIRUS (E.G. PEOPLE WHO ARE, OR HAVE BEEN, SHIELDING) TO CONSIDER THEIR PERSONAL HEALTH RISK VERY CAREFULLY BEFORE JOINING ONE OF OUR EARTH GROUPS. TO SUPPORT PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT ABLE TO ENGAGE IN OUR EARTH PROGRAMMES, WE ARE ALSO CONTINUING TO RUN OUR ONLINE AIR COURSES - CURRENT AVAILABILITY FOR AIR COURSES CAN BE FOUND ON OUR BOOK A COURSE PAGE.
