COVID-19 POLICY FOR CLASSES AT HOBBY COOKS

Students will sit side-by-side at the kitchen island and this is within a proximity of less than 2m, as such additional mitigation measures will be in place. These include improved ventilation, provision of hand sanitiser, wearing masks when not eating and excellent hygiene standards before, during and after classes.
