QBS® In-Person Training Infection Precautions

Based on guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) regarding Coronavirus Disease (COVID‑19), all participants are expected to follow these precautions for infection control during in‑person classes.


To attend and participate in an in-person class run by QBS, you must meet these requirements:

  • You have not been experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 within the last 10 days.
  • You have never had COVID-19, or if you have, you have fully recovered and are no longer infectious.
  • You have not to your knowledge been exposed to COVID-19 within the last 10 days or, if you have been exposed, you meet the following criteria:
    • You have been fully vaccinated and have received a booster shot; or
    • You have completed 2 shots of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines within the last 6 months or completed 1 shot of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine within the last 2 months.

QBS will not send or allow any master trainer to participate in a training unless they also meet the above standard. Be aware that, while following all required guidelines, master trainers do regularly fly on commercial airlines.

Any participant who is showing symptoms of COVID-19 or other communicable disease as assessed by the master trainer, or who is unwilling to follow infection control expectations, will be asked to leave the class.

During Training

We will conduct training in a manner that is intended to minimize the likelihood of infection for all participants. However, it is important to understand a couple of things:

  • It is impossible to practice and correctly learn physical procedures without touching other people, so the training will involve physical contact. We will take precautions to minimize the risk of infection during the training, but those measures cannot mean zero contact or full social distancing.
  • Any grouping of people presents some risk of infection among the participants.

If you are unable or unwilling to follow class expectations or accept the risks of participation in this class, please speak with the master trainer privately.

Training Precautions

  • Participants should bring a mask to all classes whether they expect to need it or not. We cannot control whether a specific location might require masking or when risk levels might change.
  • In the United States, QBS requires masking for all classes in locations marked as “high risk” by the CDC. Current risk levels can be found at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019‑ncov/science/ community-levels.html.
  • In all locations within and outside the U.S., QBS training will comply with any mask requirement that applies to the location where training is being held. That includes mandates imposed by local government or by the venue in which the training is located.

If required, all participants will need to wear a mask over the nose and mouth, except briefly while eating or drinking.

In locations where masking is neither recommended by the CDC nor mandated for the training location, masks are optional. Any participant (including the master trainer) may choose to wear a mask during some or all parts of training but is not required to do so.

Other Precautions
  • QBS will comply with any additional precautions required by the host venue or local government. In the absence of additional requirements, these procedures will be followed:
  • Any participant may choose to skip (and be restricted on) any or all physical procedures during the class. As a trainer, a restriction means that you are not certified to use or teach that procedure. Demonstration of some procedures is required for other procedures.
  • Every participant, including the master trainer, is expected to use hand sanitizer or wash hands between physical contacts with others.

Please sign below and return to the master trainer to indicate that you understand the information in this document and will follow the training procedures described above.

Thanks for working with us to keep everyone safe!
