Moh's Martial Arts & Go Ninja In-Person Classes and Summer Camp Safety
At Moh’s Martial Arts and Go Ninja, the safety of our students, campers, team members, and their families is of utmost importance. In preparation for reopening our physical studios, we are working diligently with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as our state and local health authorities to determine how to create the safest environment for anyone who enters our schools. We will follow the guidelines put in place for social distancing, school capacities and additional sanitization and protective measures to continue to make the safety of our community the top priority.
We understand that with Phase 1 approaching many parents are returning to work and need care. We also understand many parents are not ready for their kids to return to activities. If you decide to participate in our in-person classes and/or Summer Camp offerings, we want to be sure you are informed and comfortable with all the efforts we are making to keep you safe.
We’ve highlighted some of the changes that we’re implementing to create a safe environment and a positive experience for those attending in-person activities:
Member Health Assessments
Prior to entering our schools, members are asked to self-assess their health and the health of their children. If anyone is not feeling well, has a fever, shortness of breath or any COVID-19 like symptoms, or has recently been exposed to anyone with COVID-19, we ask that they cancel their appointment for class or camp. There will be a temperature check upon entering utilizing a touchless thermometer. If a student’s temperature is under 100.4, they will be permitted for the day’s activities.Makeups, credits, and/or refunds will be provided as needed to ensure members who are not feeling well can stay home and rest up.
Personal Protective Equipment for Members
Students have the option to wear a mask inside the building as they participate in in-person classes or camp. Masks need to be provided by the student. If a mask is worn, please be careful during strenuous activity.
Curbside Drop Off/Pick Up and Member Distancing
To limit the number of people inside our facilities, families accompanying students/campers are asked to stay in their cars and drop off/pick up curbside. For in-person Tigers martial arts classes only, 1 family member may enter. A member of our team will assist with this process, especially for our youngest members. When inside the facilities, students/campers will be kept in groups of no more than 15 (plus 2 instructors), with social distancing markers in place.
Limited Shared Equipment
There will be limited shared items, as much as possible. For camps, each student will have their own cubby, their own plates for snacks, and their own arts/crafts kits (crayons, scissors, glue stick, etc). Anything that is shared will be disinfected between uses.
Campers will be required to wear non-slip grip socks when inside the facility where shoes are not allowed. Martial Arts students that would like to have foot coverings may use grip socks as well. All campers must bring closed-toed shoes to wear over their grip socks for outdoor activities. Shoes must be worn when using our facility restrooms.
Team Health Assessments
Following state and local direction, team members will be evaluated prior to each shift, and anyone who is not feeling well, has a fever, shortness of breath, or any COVID-19 like symptoms, or has recently been exposed to anyone with COVID-19 will not be permitted to work in the studio.
Personal Protective Equipment for our Team
Staff members will be wearing masks whenever they are not able to properly social distance.
During this time, we will be reducing the number of families in the facility, following all state guidelines. We will also communicate ways we aim to reduce the amount of time you spend in the school, and ask that you maintain a safe distance from other members while in our schools.
Increased Facility Cleaning & Sanitation Stations
We have always taken great pride in the cleanliness of our facilities. You will notice increased attention to disinfecting efforts, with additional attention to high traffic areas and commonly touched facility elements. We will also continue to provide hand soaps and hand sanitizer, with increased availability in key areas of the facility.
Removal of Commonly Shared Amenities
We ask that all members bring their own water bottles as we close off the water fountains for the time being. We also will limit sharing of items, and will disinfect anything that is shared before the next person uses it.
As much as we can, we will try to run as many games, craft times, and martial arts classes outside. Our team has identified areas around our studios where we can do this, as to be in a well-ventilated area for children to play and learn.
Minimizing Touch in Games/Activities
We have redesigned games and activities to still be fun, but to minimize touch or sharing of supplies.
Each camp week, campers will be assigned to a group of 15 or less that will not change or intermingle with other groups.
