The health and safety of my clients is especially important to me, therefore I have set out the following guidelines for photoshoots and bookings:-
Social Distancing: Every effort will be made to keep the 2m social distancing advice at all times where possible both in clients' homes/office space and on location. This includes shaking hands and moving/adjusting hair or clothes. Parents may be asked to help move their children and babies as requested by me. During the sessions, instructions to the clients will be given from the distance stipulated by and in accordance with the social distancing rules. All consultations will take place via Zoom or another video conferencing site.
Handwashing: I will ensure that my hands are clean at all times. I will also ensure that hand sanitiser or antiseptic wipes are made available in places where it is difficult to wash your hands.
Covid 19 Symptoms: Pleased do not come to a photo shoot if you think you have picked up the virus and are suffering from any of the following symptoms:-
• fever or a high temperature (i.e., above 37.8° C)
• new, persistent cough
• a loss of, or change to, your sense of taste or smell
...then you should stay at home, rest, and follow the advice of Public Health England and the NHS. Remember that for most people, Coronavirus (COVID-19) will manifest as a mild infection. There are groups of people for whom things may well be more serious, and if you are in one of those groups, you may need to take more action, such as going online to https://111.nhs.uk or calling 111, which is your first step if you do need more guidance or clinical advice and are more unwell. Obviously, in an emergency, call 999.
Cancellations: If you are feeling unwell and worried about having Corona Virus, I will postpone the photoshoot until you are feeling better. I will also postpone the photoshoot if I find that I have Corona Virus symptoms.
