We are looking at reopening the gyms in two weeks.
Our primary concern is staff and member safety.
Accordingly I am going to install fans and design a circuit which allows our members to train in safety with an unprecedented volume of air movement. Brennan is sourcing the fans.
Each exercise area will be at least 6’ from other areas and disinfecting wipes will provided for each member to use prior to moving on.
This is compulsory.
The staff will wear safety masks and possibly visors.
There will be no sparring, pad work, close technical tuition of any kind until it is deemed safe. This is compulsory
I will be re organizing the gyms so the circuits flow to avoid close contact and the staff will be overseeing the smooth operation of the new safety protocol.
The gyms will open from 2pm - 10pm Monday to Friday to start off.
The risk of infection is everywhere, we are all in new territory, to be safe, and for this to work everyone must work to follow the protocol.
Finally, a big thank you to you all for understanding, for self isolating and especially those who are working to keep us safe, very especially the front line emergency services, each and every one a hero.
Bob, Catherine, and Brennan.
