We want you to know that the health and safety of our clients and staff is our top priority. Due to the growing concerns around COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we are taking additional steps to be extra vigilant. This is an evolving situation, and we are closely monitoring CDC’s recommendations to ensure all proper precautions are being taken to make certain everyone feels safe coming to class. Given the current situation, we are elevating our cleaning practices to keep our studio a safe and welcoming space for our clients and staff. This will include increasing the frequency of cleaning the lobby, bathrooms, reception area, counters, surfaces, and equipment. Antibacterial and antiseptic hand sanitizer can be located at the registration desk and in each of the bathrooms. Screen wipes are also placed at the reception desk to wipe the iPad screen before use. Antibacterial spray and paper towels are located in each of the studios. We request that studio mats and blocks, if used, are wiped down with provided antibacterial cleaner before storing. We encourage all clients to follow these best practices to help keep yourself and others healthy:
According to CDC, the best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to the 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. Alternatively, sneeze or cough into your elbow.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
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 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
