Leading Edge Covid response
We will be asking clients to transport themselves to and from venues in their own vehicles to avoid any close and confined contact between themselves and instructors.
Leading Edge can provide information on various options around the local area that will be able to provide self contained accommodation that meets the government guidelines for overnight stays. Campsite will become available from 25th July.
Any instructor employed by Leading Edge will complete the same Covid statement concerning symptoms and their possible contact to others with symptoms. They will strictly abide by current local and national government guidelines. Any possible Covid virus concerns will be referred to the company directors immediately and relevant actions will be taken.
Where possible we are asking clients to bring their own personal equipment as per the kit list on the joining instructions. (Leading Edge can provide personal equipment but will disinfect/quarantine as appropriate, see below.)
In addition clients are asked to bring a mask or suitable face covering and disinfectant hand gel to all venues. Utilising hand gel will be required pre and post activities.
Any technical equipment provided by Leading Edge will only be used by the instructed party for the duration of their course. All technical equipment will be washed/disinfected or have been quarantined for 72 hours before being used by another booking.
Leading Edge will endeavour to observe current guidelines for social distancing. From 11th July 2020 we are able to be in closer proximity to clients if the 2m distancing is impractical. In these situations the instructor will ask for masks to be worn and will endeavour to do all that is practical to limit any possible cross contamination.
