COVID 19 Statement
The Association is continually reviewing its operations in light of the current COVID 19 (Coronavirus) threat and currently is operating as normal, however please read the following statement regarding meetings and training courses.
ARCA/ATaC is continually reviewing its operations in light of the current COVID 19 (Coronavirus) threat. Our primary concern is the health of our staff and visitors to our premises.
At the moment we continue to operate as normal, although we have postponed some non-essential face to face meetings recently purely as a precautionary measure.
As the situation develops, we may consider it appropriate to postpone or cancel further face to face meetings, or schedule conference calls or video conferences in their place. We may also need to postpone training courses or assessments. In either case we will endeavour to provide as much advance notice as possible.
It is essential that anyone planning to visit our premises or training centres does not attend if they, or any close family relatives, have any of the symptoms of COVID 19 (a cough, a high temperature, shortness of breath) or have recently travelled back from any of the significantly affected countries/areas - Iran, Italy, Wuhan city and Hubei Province in China or Daegu or Cheongdo provinces of Korea.
Also, if you are in an at-risk group, including those more elderly and/or those with a relevant underlying health condition (including asthma) then we strongly recommend you do not visit our premises or training centres at the moment.
If any of the above restrictions apply to you, and you cannot attend a training course or assessment as a result, please contact our office and we will rearrange your booking free of charge.
We will continue to monitor the situation as it develops and will provide further updates as necessary.
