COVID & Mask Policy
To be unmasked in the classes we now requiring proof of vaccination
Why? Because we want to continue to keep everyone safe with the increased concern about the delta variant of COVID-19. We also know that the majority of us enjoy having in-person classes and we want to prioritize the feelings of safety and community we are building together.
How do I share my vaccination status?
After you have signed up for a class or course you will receive an email requesting your vaccination status and a copy of your vaccine card/record. This will go on file for future classes or courses.
What if I'm not vaccinated?
If you do not have proof of vaccination upon arrival to class/course you will need to wear a mask. We will have disposable masks available.
I have more questions about your Covid Policy.
What is your policy for one-on-one visits?
Shiya is vaccinated and is comfortable meeting you in your home without masks. She will contact you about your vaccine status etc prior to your appointment so she can be best prepared.
Do you offer remote consultations?
Yes! Shiya offers one-on-one virtual appointments. They can be booked here.
What are the CDC recommendations for COVID vaccine while pregnant or nursing?
COVID-19 vaccination is recommended for all people 12 years and older, including people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to get pregnant now, or might become pregnant in the future.
Evidence about the safety and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccination during pregnancy has been growing. These data suggest that the benefits of receiving a COVID-19 vaccine outweigh any known or potential risks of vaccination during pregnancy.
There is currently no evidence that any vaccines, including COVID-19 vaccines, cause fertility problems in women or men.
Although the overall risk of severe illness is low, pregnant and recently pregnant people are at an increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19 when compared with non-pregnant people. Severe illness includes illness that requires hospitalization, intensive care, need for a ventilator or special equipment to breathe, or illness that results in death. Additionally, pregnant people with COVID-19 are at increased risk of preterm birth and might be at increased risk of other adverse pregnancy outcomes, compared with pregnant women without COVID-19.
