COVID-19 STUDIO HEALTH & SAFETY POLICIES
Our promise to you is to always provide a safe and clean facility. The studio is cleaned with an electric atomizer sprayer each week. The cleaner we use, Pure & Clean, is safe, non-toxic and very effective. It stays in the air and fights off viruses (including Covid-19) and bacteria for 7 days! In addition, the studio and all equipment is disinfected before and after all classes and events.
UPDATED JUNE 1, 2021
MASK POLICY IN CLASS: Now that Massachusetts has opened to full capacity and most mask restrictions have been lifted, the decision has been made that masks will be optional for all classes beginning June 1, 2021. It is up to you to make the best decision for yourself, your children, and your fellow classmates. It is advised that if you have not been vaccinated that you should continue to wear your mask, however, as long as 6 foot physical distancing is attainable you may choose not to wear one. If at any time 6 foot physical distancing is unattainable, EVERYONE in class will be required to wear a mask. Free disposable masks will be available at the studio at all times for children and adults (if needed).
MASK POLICY IN THE BUILDING: If you have not been vaccinated, you will be required to wear a mask when entering the building. This includes the hallway, waiting and common areas, bathrooms, etc.
MASK POLICY FOR AGES 5 AND UNDER: Children under the age of 5 do NOT have to wear a mask at any time.
Participants and Instructors will be spaced 6-feet apart to accommodate physical distancing.
Wash your hands if you leave the studio space to use the restroom, etc. Hand sanitizer is also available to be used when entering and exiting the studio.
If using any RISE equipment like hand weights, stability balls, bands, etc., please sanitize before and after use. Disinfectants will be provided by the studio. If possible, for your added safety, please provide your own hand weights and other equipment.
PLEASE provide your own exercise mat. We no longer have extra mats at the studio.
