ATTENDANCE RECORDS

Upon entry into the class all participants and guests are required to check in with the class instructor.  At which time their contact information and entry time is recorded.  Temperature checks are also being taken at that time to ensure that no one enters the class whom is sick.

TEMPERATURE CHECKS

Using a non-contact digital infrared thermometer the instructor checks each member’s temperature, prior to them entering the gymnasium. The instructor’s temperature is also checked prior to each class.

Signage is posted throughout the facility warning members not to enter if they are feeling sick or showing any signs of Covid-19 related symptoms.

ENTRY & EXIT TO THE ROOM

Clear pathways are marked throughout the facility to encourage proper flow of members in order to prevent and reduce the amount of contact within a 6ft radius of each other.  Signage is posted on both entries of stairwells, hallways and doors reminding members to ensure they wait for each other to avoid close contact of the other person.

Class participants are assigned designated squares to which they are required to go to upon entry into the gymnasium.
