The health and safety of everyone attending our trainings is of utmost importance to us. Spinning Babies® is closely monitoring the global health situation, as well as updates and recommendations from public health officials. We will be taking necessary steps to do our best to prevent any transmission of COVID-19, but we cannot completely eliminate all risk. Each of us are responsible for our own health and safety. Spinning Babies® will set clear requirements that will reflect the most current advice and best practices from the state governor and the CDC to minimize the risk of transmitting COVID-19.

Our safety measures will include:

  • Everyone needs to bring and wear a facemask
  • Washing hands frequently, when entering, exiting, before and after hands-on activities, and as often as you feel necessary
  • Do everything possible to keep a 6-foot distance from one another throughout the duration of the training
  • The seminar room will be thoroughly wiped down and sanitized at the beginning and end of each day
  • Anyone participating will follow all health and safety rules as disclosed
