COVID-19 STATEMENT FROM PILATES TEACHER ASSOCIATION
The Pilates teacher Association are thankful that many of our members closed promptly and moved fairly seamlessly to an online platform having confirmed insurance was in place. We continue to seek clarification on the maximum number of participants are covered in any single session. This will be clarified as soon as possible. Maintaining such strong contact with existing customers within a few days of restricted movement is to be commended.
We continue to receive a number of enquiries from Studio owners, freelance teachers on opening their studios. The Government stated that if the occupation cannot be carried out elsewhere, and 2-meter social distancing can be observed, they should go to work. Comprehensive Pilates studio owners cannot teach online. They have to be in premises equipped with the apparatus. We are seeking clarity on whether they can open subject to deep cleaning and any other guidance. For now they must remain closed. Insurance questions are still being received and are being addressed. If you have a mortgage, loan or any other form of credit please check if you purchased payment protection as these policies may pay out after the appropriate deferment period.
Further clarification is being sought on the challenges of the studios on the furlough of employees on the 80% and VAT and duty relief on any orders of equipment in transit.
We ask that you all continue to remain vigilant for any Government Guidelines on COVID-19 and act promptly. We must protect our Frontline workers. Thank you for your response to date. Updates will be made via Members FaceBook page and email. Stay safe.
