Covid-19 Update (18th Sep 2020)
Classes WILL continue as planned from 28th Sep.
In respect of the government "Rule of 6" law, its our determination based on the updated (22Sep) government guidelines that we are currently still classed as an exception to the 6 person limit.
***Based on current class sizes, we have had to take the decision to not take on any new students at this time***
To prevent the spread of Covid-19 measures will be in place and subject to change. We ALL MUST all follow the rules and be flexible.
This is subject to change, but the following provides a good indication of the changes. The following is based on rules/measures in place by the council (who own the Hub) and risk assessment by our association head instructor (master JG Keerie).
Social distancing when entering, leaving, preparing to training and whilst training
Students/parents to stay in car park until we are ready. Each student/family/parent(s) will be directed to enter building by an instructor and will be contact-less thermometer checked.
Upon entering the hub or hall the hands sanitiser should be used, before registering/paying subs.
Once in hall student will keep 2M distance before/during class.
We may need to reduce the number of students that can train.
We are keeping this under constant review, we may need to implement measures if we feel the class numbers are to high to safely train, this could for example be splitting the class into 2 reduced time sessions or booking places in advance to secure place.
No new students can be accommodated at present.
Sanitisation and Ventilation
There will be a sanitisation station in the hall and near the building entrance/exit.
Windows / doors to be left open for ventilation
-Wearing of a face mask/shield is NOT required, its optional for students who wish to wear them, however all social distance rules still apply
-Refrain from all shouting / Ki-Hap either by students or by instructors
- Students to come ready to train, avoid changing on site
- Bring own drinks, water machine will be out of use
- Training will focus on line work and forms/patterns/Hyung, so no sparring or any other activity requiring close contact
