March 21st, 2020 - Green Pop - Response to COVID-19 pandemic

Due to the presently unfolding medical pandemic across the world, I have chosen to suspend my normal format of public community workshops. I will continue to facilitate small private group bookings with a heightened focus and diligence on cleaning and sanitisation before, during and after each workshop.

You can discover these 'Sanity Sessions' over here by clicking this link.

At a time like this, it’s really important that we all do our best to continue on with our day to day lives as best we can, while supporting and looking out for ourselves and each other. Your health and wellbeing is highly important to me, as well as that of my own and my family. From reading and listening to as much of the advice provided by our local and national government as possible, I’m of the understanding that small activities such as creative sessions can happily continue as long as we follow the principles and guidelines provided.

The social distancing guidelines are about “new ways of interacting” that are sustainable. This means that for at least the next three to six months we will no longer be shaking hands, hugging our friends, we will be mindful of the surfaces we touch in public and of course washing our hands regularly for 20 seconds or more, and using hand sanitiser. These measures are sustainable in the sense that they “keep our society functioning” and we “keep going as a nation”.

The social distancing measures also recommend that we maintain a 1.5 meter distance between each other where practicable. With the purpose of this measure, being to avoid contracting the virus from the person next to us. With that being said, most importantly, these rules and guidelines are about slowing the spread of the virus. If anyone who is due to attend a privately booked session with Green Pop, and has returned from international travel in the past two weeks, had close contact with a person who has travelled internationally in the past two weeks, or shows signs of feeling unwell including the following, then please do not attend the session:

 

  • Fever

  • Cough

  • Sore throat

  • Shortness of breath

 

 In terms of the space and the operation of our workshop, here’s what I’ll be doing to keep all of us safe:

  • The space is over 17 meters squared, allowing up to 4 people at any time

  • Spacing the chairs further apart to provide more room between each participant

  • You have the option to leave the door open to allow greater ventilation

  • A hand washing station is available with antibacterial soap and paper towel

  • All surfaces, tools and materials will be thoroughly cleaned and sanitised before your arrival

Here's some additional information from the Department of Health and Human Services about reducing your risk. You can also click this link for further details.

 

What can I do to reduce my risk of coronavirus infection?

  • Wash hands often with soap and running water, for at least 20 seconds. Dry with paper towel or hand dryer.

  • Try not to touch your eyes, nose or mouth.

  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t have a tissue cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow.

  • Stay at home if you feel sick. If you take medication make sure you have enough.

  • Phone your doctor or the hotline – 1800 675 398 – if you need medical attention. They will tell you what to do.

  • Continue healthy habits: exercise, drink water, get plenty of sleep.

  • Wearing a face mask is not necessary if you are well.

  • Buy an alcohol-based hand sanitiser with over 60 per cent alcohol.
