Changes to The Well while in Level 2.

Kia ora koutou,

We hope that you are doing okay out there emerging from your bubbles or staying toastie in them! For some of you we know that you are still in lockdown, thanks for hanging in there, we are thinking of you and we hope it won’t be for much longer. For those in Whanganui-a-tara here is an update on how The Well is operating in Level2 (with delta).

We will be continuing to provide some regular wellbeing sessions with appropriate amendments to sessions and set up based on the new Alert Level 2. We have also been loving the engagement on Instagram LIVE and the ZOOM sessions so will be continuing those!

 1.  Booking Prerequisites
Thank you in advance for pre-booking through the website or the Mindbody app. This is particularly important to ensure that we are meeting the max 50 people requirement. Our good mates & venue partners, Two/fiftyseven are adhering to best practices so it’s important to us to be able to do our part too. They are currently closing the workspace at 5:30pm to ensure there will be very little crossover between Well goers and two/fiftyseven co-workers.

2. Social Distancing.
We are all about social distancing at this time! With the 2-metre social distancing requirement, we have adjusted our numbers to adapt. Our maximum capacity in the Well space is now 12 people. All sessions will be accommodated to meet the 2-metre distance requirements.  

3. Masks wearing. 
Level 2 has surprised us with a new mask mandate - we are here for it! Please wear your mask in and around the session itself. This includes arriving through the building, going to the bathroom, walking through the shared kitchen and other communal spaces. Once we move into the Session space behind the curtains, you are not required to wear a mask during the session.

It is important to remember that some people have mask exemptions for valid reasons. We will be making generous assumptions that everyone is respecting the mask rule and that non-mask-wearing people have valid reasons.

4. Sign In with the Covid tracer app.
For record-keeping and tracing it is incredibly important to sign in to two/fiftyseven on the covid tracer app when you arrive. There will be several tracer posters for you to scan, if you can’t find one please ask.

5. Session time changes
It feels like a new kind of Level 2 huh! We've adapted our schedule to have a blend of online and in-person sessions. We are continuing on the Instagram LIVE sessions next week too. Please check the schedule on the website and on the Mindbody app to keep updated.

6. Changes to the landing space
To maintain best hygiene practices and in support of our venue partners two/fiftyseven, we won’t be offering tea or colouring in the Landing space. You will still be welcomed in by your friendly usual Well team and invited to move straight into the Session space beyond the curtains.

6. The Well’s hygiene practices

Our partners at two/fiftyseven are super on to it. Luckily, their main development period was in the last lockdown so considerations for the alert levels were factored into the design. This means the ventilation is designed to support 200 people in the space and the entire floor is fresh air vents that are opened at night.
Surface cleaning happens at the end of each session and deep cleaning happens end of every week.
Hand sanitiser and masks will be offered and encouraged.

7. BYO - Bring your own.
Where possible please BYO yoga mats, reflection books, pens, water or anything else you may want or need. 

We understand these face to face engagement, public spaces may feel difficult at this time. Please do what you need to keep yourself well. We look forward to seeing you to Relax, reflect, connect and express when it feels right for you.
