FAQ’s for Team Elite Martial Arts Day Camp Program
What is your facility doing to lower the risk of contracting the Covid 19 Outbreak?
The school board had decided that a 2 week period after the March break is necessary due in part largely to lower the risk of spreading the virus. We can all assume that some families will be travelling during the break and based on the recommendations of health care professionals, should you encounter Covid 19 you will have to self Isolate for 14 days.
We will be taking this into consideration as anyone who had travelled outside of Canada During the last 2 weeks, will not be allowed to attend the program. NO EXCEPTIONS. Having said this, the facility bathrooms will be cleaned and sanitized every 2 hours to avoid the spread of germs or bacteria. Common hand contact areas will be wiped every hour such as had rails, door knobs and etc. We have hand sanitization stations throughout the floor area where people spend most of their time.
It will be required by all people entering and exiting the training facility to use hand sanitizer to reduce the risk of spreading anything.
Should any child develop flu like symptoms, parents will be contacted and they will be asked to return home in an effort to keep every as safe as possible. We will provide reimbursement for anyone that is sent home. For anyone that has to be sent home, they will have an area where to self isolate until they are picked up by their parents or approved guardian.
