The health and well-being of our Music Early Learning Group families, our music therapy clients, our music lesson students, and our staff, are our number one priority. For this reason we always uphold very strict hygiene processes and policies, with staff hand washing and instrument cleaning occurring before and after each session.
The following measures are always, and will continue to be practiced in all of our programs:
Instrument cleaning and use in groups
All instruments are cleaned each day, including being wiped down with anti-bacterial wipes between sessions. This also includes wiping down the keys of keyboards between sessions. Instruments used in our baby groups are kept separate and only come out for the bubs.
We are also prompting for larger gaps between people in any circle activities.
Staff hand washing
All staff wash their hands with soap and water before and after classes and use anti-bacterial handwash during sessions as required.
What we ask of you
There are steps we can all take to ensure the wellbeing of everyone.
You can help us by ensuring strong health and hygiene practices, such as washing hands regularly with soap and water, using alcohol-based hand sanitiser if soap is unavailable, covering coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the inside of their elbow and disposing of tissues in the bin immediately.
The biggest way we can all help is to not attend groups if you or your child are unwell. As a reminder, here is our illness and safety policy for all the services we offer – full policy here.
Further, in line with this Government advice, we ask that parents, carers, children, clients, students or staff do not access Music Beat Australia services (Kids Music Beat, Music Beat Therapy Services, Music Beat Lessons + Tuition) if they have travelled to China, Iran, South Korea or Italy in the past 14 days or had contact with someone with a case of coronavirus.
Please notify us immediately if this is the case and you have accessed our services.
As always, we continue to take advice from Queensland Health and the Department of Education in relation to this matter. We will continue to provide updates with the latest information as it becomes available.
Further advice and information about the coronavirus is available on the Queensland Health website
