COVID-Safe Plan- JACINTA STUDIOS
Business Name: Jacinta Studios
Plan completed by: Jacinta Dal Ben
Date reviewed: 1/11/21 (effective as of 9am 1/11/21)
This plan applies to both outdoor photography as well as in-home photography and is subject to relevant gathering limits
The photographer providing the service must be a registered business with an ABN and be undertaking a paid service
Both the photographer AND all clients aged 16+ must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, unless a valid medical exemption applies
All participants aged 16+ are required to check in via the photographers QR code and provide evidence of their vaccination status
Both the client and the photographer must remain a minimum of 1.5 m from each other at all times. Jacinta studios can allow up to 15 patrons into the studio under the current requirements of 1 per 4 square metres.
To minimise the build-up of people, photography locations will be selected based on them being a safe distance away from other members of the public
A face mask will be worn by the photographer at all times when needed throughout the photography session
Unless a lawful exception applies, all people over the age of 12 will wear a face covering and only remove that face covering for the duration of the photograph. This is in accordance with the Stay at Home Directives (Restricted Areas) Subclause 7 (s) that state a face covering can be removed “to the extent that it is not reasonably practicable to receive that service wearing a face covering.”)
Cloth masks will be washed each day after use and disposable masks will be discarded. However, if during the day the mask is visibly dirty or wet, the mask will be replaced immediately.
Vigilant hand and cough hygiene will be maintained at all times by both the client and the photographer.
Camera equipment will be thoroughly cleaned between sessions
Indoor Photography Sessions
Disposable face masks and hand sanitiser are available at my studio for use by the Client/s if needed.
The studio is disinfected immediately before and after each session. All blankets and props used during the session are washed.
Clients must disinfect using hand sanitiser upon entering the studio and before and after touching any printed samples.
Temperature checking will be completed prior to entry to the studio using a contactless thermometer + records kept of everyone’s temperature.
Props/outfits or blankets will be sanitised between sessions.
Contact details for all persons being photographed will be collected prior to the session – including proof of vaccination
Clients will be required to check in via a registered QR code at the start of each session
The importance of not attending / rescheduling if unwell will be reinforced and is applicable to both the client and the photographer
In the event that the photographer comes into contact with a person with coronavirus (COVID-19), WorkSafe Victoria will be notified immediately on 13 23 60 and all contact details will be provided
Any exposure to a person with coronavirus (COVID-19) will result in the closure of this business until it is declared safe to re-open by the relevant authorities
In the event that the client comes into contact with a person with coronavirus (COVID-19), they shall notify the photographer immediately and will not schedule a photography session until they have received a negative test result
Airflow will be enhanced by opening windows and doors where possible during a session.
The photographer is a sole trader and does not interact with a workforce
