COVID-19 Update

Updated: 9 January 2022

Whilst only a week into the new year, we continue to face challenges due to COVID-19. Health Jigsaw has been monitoring the advice and updates provided by the Tasmanian Government and Public Health regarding COVID-19.

The health and safety of our clients, their families, and the wider community are our top priority. Measures have been introduced to help minimise the spread of COVID-19 and allow Health Jigsaw to continue operating. In relation to your training:

  • Please wash and sanitise your hands before your workout. Sanitiser will also be provided for you to use.
  • A mask will be worn by your trainer. In an indoor environment, you must wear a mask too and you are encouraged to wear one when training outdoors. According to government guidelines, masks may be removed while doing intense physical exercise indoors. The kinds of activities that will be ‘intense physical exercise’ will vary between individuals but as a general rule, you can remove your mask if you are out of breath or puffing.
  • Boxing will not be an option as it is not possible to maintain a distance of 1.5 metres.
  • When coughing and sneezing, cover your mouth and nose with a flexed elbow.
  • Err on the side of caution and cancel your training session if you have any of the following symptoms, no matter how mild:
    • fever (or signs of fever, including chills or night sweats)
    • runny nose
    • cough
    • sore/itchy throat
    • shortness of breath
    • loss of taste or smell.
      COVID-19 can also present with the following symptoms that can occur on their own or combined with the other symptoms: headache, muscle and joint pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, loss of appetite and fatigue. If you are experiencing these symptoms you should consider a COVID-19 test as part of managing your illness.
      You will also need to cancel your session if you are a close contact of a confirmed COVID-19 case or have been advised by Public Health that you were at a significant transmission event.
      Under these circumstances, the requirement of 12 hours’ cancellation notice will be waived. Should your trainer present any of the above-mentioned symptoms or circumstances, your training session will be cancelled and you will be notified.
  • Thorough cleaning/sanitation of all equipment will be undertaken by Health Jigsaw after each training session.

COVID-19 spreads when people are unwell and don’t take self-isolation seriously. If you feel sick, even with mild symptoms, stay at home. For more information, please visit the coronavirus.tas.gov.au website or contact the Public Health Hotline on 1800 671 738.
