Safety Plan For COVID19
Time & Location
About the Event
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommend we all take sensible steps to protect ourselves and others. This is essential to slow down the spread of any virus. When participating in our martial arts instruction you acknowledge you are responsible for safeguarding yourself and the others in the studio. Here is what we will be doing:
1. We ask all parents and students to advise us when they will be travelling:
a. When you will be going
b. Where you will be going
c. How long you will be gone
d. We will compare destinations to COVID-19 hotspots
2. Everyone must stay home when sick, this includes:
d. Tuition will not be suspended when you or your child is training from home
3. All touch surfaces will be disinfected before your training time everyday
4. Floors will continue to be disinfected before your training time everyday
5. Handwashing practices will continue to apply for children and staff:
a. After toileting
b. After blowing nose
c. After coughing or sneezing
d. Before and After training
6. Faces should be covered when we cough or sneeze; tissues should not be reused; they should immediately be thrown in the trash.
7. As we are entering summer, there will be plenty of coughing and sneezing. It is vital that we do not pass off coughing, sneezing, congestion as allergies. For the safety of everyone, proceed as if you have a virus.
8. We can not monitor social distancing during martial arts training at all times. Student participation in class means you are accepting the risk of potential proximity to other students, staff and parents in the studio. We have always had these rules; we’re digging in hard on them now. We appreciate you doing your part to keep everyone healthy and strong.
Prevention & Treatment:
The Centers for Disease Control recommendations are found here: https://www.cdc.gov/
There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus. However, as a reminder, CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, including:
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
• Stay home when you are sick.
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
• Follow CDC’s recommendations for using a facemask.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 70% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
