COVID and classes

Calmbirth will be adhering to the current heath orders in each State and Territory affected by COVID-19 outbreaks, including, but not limited to, social distancing and mask-wearing orders.
 
Social distancing: As social distancing recommendations vary, depending on current health orders, the numbers of attendees per Calmbirth Program may vary depending on the capacity of the venue where the Calmbirth course is held. Couples will be required to maintain the current social distancing recommendations.
 
Mask Wearing: Educators and attendees alike may be required to wear face masks in accordance with the current health orders in their local area.
 
A Participant must not attend a Face-to-face Calmbirth course if:

  • In the last 10 days they tested positive for COVID-19

  • In the event you or your partner have been a close contact, you will need to do a RAT test each day your Calmbirth course and present a photograph of your negative result to the facilitator, and wear a mask during the course. 

  • If you or your partner are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 such as a temperature, cough, sore throat, running nose, difficulty breathing, changes to taste and smell, diarrhoea

  • If you or your partner are awaiting a COVID test result

 
Please note that Educators have the right to turn away any attendee that appears to be symptomatic.
 
An alternative arrangement will be made for the participant/s to attend a ZOOM course or reschedule to a later date if time allows.
 
If an Educator falls under the above restrictions, they will contact attendees and make alternative arrangements. 
 
If your facilitator tests positive for COVID, and they are well enough to teach, then this scheduled course will be conducted via ZOOM. Or alternate arrangements will be made by the facilitator if time allows. 
 
If you or your partner have started Day 1 of the Calmbirth course and get COVID and are unable to do Day 2 of the Calmbirth course, we will endeavour to find an alternate course date, be it face to face or via Zoom to accommodate you.  
 
Venues: Educators who hire venues to conduct their Calmbirth courses are subject to the COVID requirements of the venue. In some cases, this may include vaccination requirements. 
 
At times, during the pandemic, Educators may request that attendees undertake a RAT before attending their Calmbirth course.
 
Change of circumstances - Face to face courses will move to ZOOM if any lock down health order is implemented or Calmbirth believes there is sufficient risk of COVID transmission to the attendees in a particular area. In the event the facilitator has COVID it will move to ZOOM. ZOOM courses will be available as an option for those couples not wanting to do a face to face course during these uncertain times.  All courses are subject to our cancellation policy & our Terms and Conditions regardless of how the course proceeds. 
 
REFUNDS
 
All courses are subject to the Calmbirth Pty Ltd Cancellation Policy & our Terms and Conditions regardless of how the course proceeds. If your Calmbirth face to face course moves to the Zoom platform you will be subject to the Calmbirth Pty Ltd Cancellation Policy as your course will still be going ahead as planned. If you get COVID and are unable to attend, you will only be eligible for a refund, if an alternate course, face to face or ZOOM, cannot be arranged and you have provided a medical certificate and proof of a recent positive RAT/PCR.
