YOUR HEALTH - OUR PRIORITY
These are unprecedented times. We want to do what we can to ensure our community and staff/contractors remain safe while still enjoying the benefits of exercise. As the situation with coronavirus has evolved you will have seen some changes around the Studios in response to the Ministry of Health Guidelines. We will continue to monitor the situation, and make changes as and when needed. Our focus is on your wellbeing and ensuring that when this situation is over, our business is still servicing our community.
HELP US TO HELP YOU
Currently, there is no advice advising people to refrain from exercising at gyms if you are healthy, have not traveled to or from restricted countries in the last 14 days and have not been in close contact with a person with Covid-19.
We've already made changes to aspects of Studio life, such as cleaning measures etc, and in the coming days, you may see changes to the location or structure of some of our classes (e.g. splitting classes into smaller numbers with some inside using equipment and others doing outside exercises and then switching over or a change to a total outside location).
However, we understand that for some people in our community (the elderly, or people with health issues) you may still be concerned about participating in our classes, etc. So, in light of this and taking into account the measures we have already put in place (see below), we want to hear from you about what we could do to support you more? If you can, please complete this short Poll to help us contingency plan for you and us.
Your responses to our poll may help guide us with our future decisions, along with, of course, any relevant Ministry of Health guidelines.
If you select 'Other' above, please email us at , with any details.
STEPS WE'VE ALREADY TAKEN
We've taken the following steps to help our community remain healthy:
Switched out the reusable cleaning cloths for antibacterial wipes;
Placed new bins in the Studio for disposing of those wipes;
Arranging for all equipment to be cleaned daily with antibacterial wipes;
Provided disposable gloves for use with boxing gloves; and
More reminder posters in the Studio about wiping down equipment after use.
We have more sanitiser on order with our supplier and are expecting the delivery this week (week of 16 March). When this arrives we will make more of it available in our Studios.
HOW YOU CAN HELP US
We ask that you do not come to the gym if:
you are showing any symptoms (runny nose, cough, fever, etc) (even if you believe it is not coronavirus), or
you have any other risk factors, such as having traveled to or from a restricted country in the last 14 days or having been in close contact with someone at risk of coronavirus.
PLEASE BE MINDFUL OF YOURSELF - WASH YOUR HANDS REGULARLY - CATCH ANY COUGHS OR SNEEZES IN YOUR ELBOW - WIPE DOWN YOUR EQUIPMENT WITH WIPES STRAIGHT AFTER USE.
If you have any questions or comments, please let us know (Scott 0211755946) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks and stay healthy.
Scott and the ES Team.
