COVID-19 Policy

In September 2021 we will be returning to in-person classes. In order to do this, we have instituted some changes to ensure our learning environment is as safe as possible from COVID-19. Here are some of the steps we have taken to make your class informative, fun, and COVID-19-free:

  • Our classes will return to our home at 10C. Here we comply with all policies that they mandate. The 10C COVID-19 policy can be found here.

  • You will need to sign in upon entry into the 10C building, wear masks at all times while in the building, and sanitize your hands as required 

  • We will be hosting our classes in a large teaching space to ensure it’s easy to distance appropriately from others while in class

  • Everything you will need during the course will be in a bag waiting for you, all sanitized and ready for class. This bag will remain yours for the three weeks; no one else will open it, except you!

 

On September 1, Ontario announced that residents will need to show full proof of vaccination (two doses at least 14 days prior) to enter certain indoor establishments, including meeting and event spaces, along with photo ID. This applies to our classroom location at 10C.  Weeberry is an evidence-based, best-practice organization and a Covid-19 vaccination advocate.  We are keen to support this mandate.  

 

Based on information from the Public Health Agency of Canada, Wellington Dufferin Guelph Public Health unit, and the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada , in addition to all public health measures we are implementing, vaccination is one of the most important tools that we have at our disposal at this point. For this reason, all Weeberry staff are fully vaccinated, and we require all our clients to be fully vaccinated*. 

 

Once you complete your prenatal course registration, you will need to submit a verification of your second dose vaccination receipt within 24 hours (a link for this verification form will be sent in your registration confirmation email). Your vaccination receipt can be downloaded at any time at covid19.ontariohealth.ca. This information has your name, date of birth, and vaccination information. Your health card number is not included in this document. This is the same vaccination receipt required by other proprietors/events/etc. as per the new Ontario legislation. We will hold this information in confidence. Unfortunately, if your vaccination receipts are not received before the first class, you will not be permitted to enter 10C, where our classes take place. No refund will be offered in this circumstance.

 

*The only exception to the full vaccination requirement is written proof of a medical reason, provided by a physician or registered nurse that sets out: (i) a documented medical reason for not being fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and (ii) the effective time period for the medical reason.

If you are unable to join us for our in-person courses, please take advantage of our virtual one-on-one private option!

Please note that as the COVID-19 situation evolves around us, we continue to adapt to meet your needs in a safe way. This means having flexibility pivoting to either in-person and virtual courses.  All of our decisions are made based on the recommendations of Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health.
