COVID-19: A MESSAGE TO OUR CUSTOMERS

 

UPDATED: March 18, 2020

Parents,

 

At this time, we plan to reschedule any cancelled sessions. No decision will be taken on cancellations or the rescheduling of sessions until a clearer understanding of the program end dates have been determined. We will review the situation on Monday, April 6. We appreciate your patience during this uncertain time.

 

With the increasing number of cases of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) being reported we wanted to give you some best practices, tips and resources to protect everyone on our programs.

 

Our priority is the safety and well-being of the children and coaches on our programs. We encourage everyone to follow the recommended guidelines from your local and state departments of Public Health to protect your family from any virus including respiratory viruses like COVID-19.

 

We are currently working alongside our clients and partners to make informed decisions with our spring programs, which may include postponing to a future date. For those programs that continue to run at this time we recommend the following precautions. So, please follow these important tips and best practices to protect everyone on our programs:

 

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • If soap & water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol content.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces (this includes the pinnies we use on our programs).
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Cover your cough/sneeze with a tissue or elbow.
  • Throw the tissue in the trash and wash your hands.
  • Stay home if you are sick.
  • No handshakes, high fives or fist pumps.
  • Drink/bottles must NOT be shared.
  • All children are advised to carry & use hand sanitizer.
  • Individuals with chronic health issues and/or individuals experiencing severe symptoms should be evaluated by a medical professional.

 

Other important information to be aware of regarding our international coaches includes:

 

  • Our Visa Sponsor has denied visa applications to anyone living in high-risk countries.
  • Our coaches were advised not to travel to high-risk countries prior to arrival in the US.
  • We are providing our staff with specific guidelines, protocols and recommendations.
  • If there are any apparent concerns, the coach in question will be required to self-quarantine for 14 days.
  • We are providing our coaches with hand sanitizer* and issuing them with strict guidelines to help protect children, coaches and parents involved with our programs. (*Hand sanitizer will go into effect ASAP – due to global shortage and supply chain issues).
