Developing Full Potential through Play & Learning

COVIDSafe Plan

Updated 8th September 2021

Please see below for Play Learn Bloom's COVIDSafe Plan so that you can make informed decisions for the well-being of your family.

Attendance:

Please do not attend sessions if you or your child is unwell. We require you to cancel your appointment if:

1. If you or your children have fever, cough, runny nose, sore throat or flu-like symptoms.

2. If you or your child have been in close contact with a confirmed or suspected COVID-19 case or 

3. If you, your child or close family member is in quarantine after returning from inter-state hot spots or overseas, or have recently visited close contact sites as part of Qld Health contact tracing. 

Play Learn Bloom will also cancel clinic sessions if Natalie becomes unwell or if someone in her family does, or if her children’s school becomes quarantined. 

If you are concerned, I understand your need to self-isolate and there are no cancellation fees, please just let me know with as much notice as possible. Telehealth sessions may be able to be offered if clinically appropriate.

 

Adherence to social distancing:

2 square metres per person indoors: Our treatment room is more than 16sqm, allowing for at least 4 people to be in the clinic room at one time. This allows us to cater for a child, their parent and the therapist and one sibling without concern for the social distancing rule.

Social distancing will be maintained between adults within the clinic. We will maintain social distancing with the children as often as appropriate, however as we know children do not always understand this, and at times manual handling may be required in sessions. If lots of assistance is required, the parents may be asked to assist the child. Masks are not required to be worn if social distancing is maintained. 

We will not be doing minimal High-Fives, handshakes and hugs as greetings or encouragement

Client sessions will also be spaced by 15minutes to allow for minimal contact between clients and to allow for adequate cleaning.

Infection Control & Cleaning:

Please know that your health and safety is our highest priority. However, please acknowledge there is a risk in attending a clinic that multiple people visit. As we continue to uphold our high clinical and sanitation standards by following our infection control policy, know that we engage in the following practices at Play Learn Bloom:

  • Completion of the Australia Government Dept of Health Infection Control Training - COVID 19

  • Disinfecting and wiping down surfaces between appointments as necessary

  • Cleaning equipment and toys after use as necessary

  • Providing hand sanitizer and handwashing with soap and water on entry

  • Please note PPE will not be worn during sessions, but therapists will engage in increased handwashing/santizing before, during and after session. Masks are worn as directed by Public Health Orders.

Reporting:
We are committed to supporting public health authorities so if we have confirmed cases in our premises, we will be alerting public health authorities and taking responsible steps.

Client attendance records are kept as part of the clinics standard documentation procedure, those who attend with the child will be documented in the electronic record along with their attendance. This is kept on a secure elecronic database as outlined in our privacy statement. No client health details will be released, however contact details may need to be released in the event of contact tracing. 

 

 

If you have any concerns, would like something wiped down, or would like to discuss how we are proactively dealing with the outbreak please just ask. Your health and well-being is our main priority.
