NESTED LLC: COVID-19 Health & Safety Protocols for in-person classes


Nested LLC believes the health of our clients, instructors, and members of our administrative and operations team is of utmost importance. We closely monitoring and will adhere to local, state and federal public health guidelines, including the CDC, to maintain best practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Nested will follow CDC and government recommendations re: health protocols with regard to masks and other requirements. Unless otherwise noted, masks are optional for all attendees & instructors. 

The following protocols are currently in place to help ensure the health and safety of our clients, instructors and team members::

    • Nested LLC sanitizes all surfaces (counters, chairs, etc.) before and after classes, in addition to the regularly scheduled janitorial services provided by the office space.
    • Nested LLC has always sterilized and will continue to sterilize all CPR & choking practice dolls, swaddling blankets and other materials used in class before & after each class as well as only use single-use face shield/lung bags. NOTE: The hands-on breathing practice portion of the CPR/choking prevention during the NBCPR class may be held OUTDOORS due to health & safety reasons based on government guidelines & requirements due to COVID-19. Should this portion of the class need to be suspended, once it is determined to be safe to resume doing so, Nested will provide all registered attendees with a COMPLIMENTARY coupon code to register for a 1-hour infant CPR & choking prevention refresher class.
    • ALL Nested LLC in-person class participants (registered attendees AND Nested team members) must acknowledge that they are attending Nested’s in-person classes at their own risk of contracting COVID-19. Nested LLC is not liable in the event a participant contracts COVID-19 subsequent to attending an in-person group or private class. If you are a member of a high-risk group, Nested LLC recommends that you elect to take Nested’s online VIDEO class or LIVE Virtual class option in lieu of its in-person group or private classes.
    • As stated in NESTED’s Terms of Service & Conditions: Effective October 1, 2021, Nested LLC will require all staff and in-person class attendees to be fully vaccinated*; and, effective 7/1/2023, all staff and in-person class attendees will have the option to wear a mask. This policy will be subject to change based on guidance from the CDC, as well as guidance from local governmental health authorities. For people with a medical condition or religious belief that prevents them from getting the COVID-19 vaccination, in lieu of proof of vaccination those individuals must provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test (taken within 72 hours of their arrival of a class) upon entry to the building.
    • Nested instructors and/or team members will NOT teach nor attend any in-person Nested classes if they have any symptoms of COVID-19, and will remain quarantined for a period of 10 days.
    • Upon arrival, ALL class participants (registered attendees AND Nested team members) are required to:
      1. Offered the option to wear a mask — This is to help to protect all attendees in preventing the spread of COVID-19 as well as flu, RSV and colds, especially as case numbers increase.
      2. Confirm that they have not had a fever and/or cold symptoms within the past 7 days.
      3. Asked to sanitize their hands.

Should a class participant arrive on-site and refuse to adhere to these protocols, the participant will be denied entry.  There will be no refunds for missed classes under these circumstances.

If you are registered for a class and become ill, please contact us as soon as possible to reschedule your class. For more information about Nested’s rescheduling and cancellation policy, please visit Nested’s Course Policies & FAQ page.

Nested LLC conducts classes in buildings operated by other entities. It is possible that those entities will have additional protocols in place which may be more extensive than those required by Nested LLC.  Please be sure to consult the class location’s website for your specific class prior to your arrival to ensure you have up-to-date information.

*As stated on the CDC website: “Fully vaccinated means you have completed your “primary series” and either that 14 days have passed since receiving the second dose of an FDA or WHO authorized double-dose vaccine or that 14 days have passed since receiving the sole dose of an FDA or WHO authorized single-dose vaccine…If you have completed your “primary series”, but are not yet eligible for a booster, are also considered “up to date”. A “primary series” is the initial dose(s) of a COVID-19 vaccine — for Pfizer and Moderna mRNA vaccines, the primary series is 2 vaccine doses. For the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) COVID-19 vaccine, the primary series is a single vaccine dose…You are “up to date” with your COVID-19 vaccines if you have completed a COVID-19 vaccine “primary series” AND received the most recent booster dose recommended for you by CDC. The updated (bivalent) boosters are called “bivalent” because they protect against both the original virus that causes COVID-19 and the Omicron variant BA.4 and BA.5.”

*As of June 2020, Nested LLC updated these Terms of Service and Conditions to include new health and safety COVID-19 protocols for all in-person classes, which were updated again in June 2021, September 2021, December 2022 & July 2023.  Be sure to review these prior to attending your in-person class to review the most current COVID-19 protocols.​
