Classes will be socially distanced (6 feet or more) at all times and masks are required indoors. To maintain distancing, coaches will not be spotting (physically assisting with skills), but will be doing appropriate drills instead.
Spirals “Zero Tolerance” Illness Policy
All individuals including gymnasts, coaches, administrative personnel, parents, and recreational class members shall perform a personal health evaluation prior to every entrance to any Spirals practice, class or event. Individuals should ask themselves about signs or symptoms of illness including but not limited to fever, shortness of breath, cough, runny nose, sore throat, loss of smell or taste, nausea or vomiting, abdominal discomfort, diarrhea, skin rash, generalized fatigue, enlarged lymph nodes, and muscle aches.
Spirals policy states that individuals who have signs or symptoms of illness should stay at home and will not be allowed into the gymnasium or practice area until either the individual is symptom free for over 72 hours or the individual has written clearance to return to gym from a licensed medical professional such as a Physician, Nurse Practitioner, or Physician’s Assistant.
All members over the age of 2 years old should arrive with a face covering on.
Every child must be accompanied by an adult to the front desk. At the front desk, members will be screened by asking:
- Have you, or anyone in your household, have had any symptoms of COVID-19 in the past 3 days? A symptom list from the CDC will be visible on the front desk.
- Has the participant had any known contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days?
If the answer is yes to either of these questions, the Spirals member will not be allowed to participate in the class until they can answer no to both questions. A full refund for the class will be issued at this time.
We will have a no-contact thermometer available at the front desk, and may take temperatures as necessary for anyone entering the gym. We define a fever as a temperature of 100.2°F or above. If a participant’s forehead measures a fever but we have reason to believe the surface of their skin is hotter than their internal temperature (i.e. they were standing in the sun for a period of time), a secondary temperature will be taken off of their neck, side of their arm or palm.
We will have hand sanitizer at the front desk, and face coverings will be available for anyone who arrives without one.
Entry into the Gym
Once participants have passed the screening, they will be directed to their coach who will ensure they distance for the remainder of the class.
At the end of practice, members picking up their gymnast will line up in a socially distant manner at the front desk. Once class is over, participants will be dismissed, gather their belongings, and go to their parents/guardians while maintaining distance from other gymnasts and parents/guardians.
As per local guidelines, our worksite-specific plan and our RISE checklist are available upon request.
