COVID-19 Precautions for Workshops and Classes
Wildroot Botanicals’ COVID-19 precautions are informed by WA State Department of Health guidelines and can be subject to change.
Classes are held in-person and are a blend of in-the-field and classroom-style learning. At present all classes are held outdoors, with the potential for some indoor time depending on the activity and the weather.
We ask students to be prepared by bringing a mask in case we shift from outdoors to indoors. At present we ask students to use a mask while indoors.
Cleaning/disinfecting supplies readily accessible at our school location. Additionally, each person is asked to bring their own hand sanitiser because we will also be out in-the-field and at off-site locations during many of our classes.
Before each class, we ask participants to self-screen for COVID-19 by asking themselves questions 1-4 taken from WA State Department of Health website:
- Do you have any of these symptoms, however mild or severe, that are not caused by another condition?
- Fever or chills
- Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
- Muscle or body aches
- Recent loss of taste or smell
- Sore throat
- Nausea or vomiting
- Within the past 10 days, have you had contact with anyone who you know had COVID-19 or COVID-19-like symptoms? Contact is being 6 feet (2 meters) or closer for more than 15 minutes with a person, or having direct contact with fluids from a person with COVID-19 (for example, being coughed or sneezed on).
- Have you had a positive COVID-19 test for active virus in the past 10 days?
- Within the past 14 days, has a public health or medical professional told you to self-monitor, self-isolate, or self-quarantine because of concerns about COVID-19 infection?
If participants answer ‘yes’ to any of the above screening questions, 1-4, we ask you to refrain from attending classes and to consult with your health care provider.
WA State Department of Health has the most current guidelines regarding what to do if you show symptoms or if you have recently tested positive for COVID-19. Additionally, they provide recommendations about how to wear a mask properly (e.g. over nose and mouth) and what types of masks are recommended.
