Lymphoedema Education Solutions COVID 19 Course Guidelines and Health Declaration

Lymphoedema Education Solutions (LES) takes seriously the well being and health of each individual that is associated with its courses. It is guided by the health directive of the Victorian state government.

COVID 19 Course Guidelines

Lymphoedema Education Solutions will provide a level 2 face mask to course participants, tutors, invited guests for all sessions. LES will also be guided by the Victorian Health Department for any other changes.

Where possible, maintain a 1.5 meter distance from others at all times (exempted during practical
sessions). And be mindful of this when using public amenities.

Please bring your own pen and a water bottle clearly named. Catering will be individually plated and cutlery individually bagged.

Named tubs will be provided that will contain the linen and other equipment that you will individually use during the duration of the course.

All plinths and shared equipment ( such as measuring boards) will be wiped down with Clinell Universal Disinfectant wipes between individuals using them.

Lymphoedema Education Solutions encourages you to download the COVID safe app.
