The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally transformed our lives, businesses, and communities.
After three months of total lock-down, during which we offered unlimited Zoom classes for our members, by levels and age-groups, we were thrilled to re-open in June of 2020, and a safety plan has been developed, to ensure our students and staff safety and well being.
We worked hard to make sure that, once back to class, the guidelines for the Phased Reopening are met: the club was freshly painted and sanitized, social distancing signs placed on the floors, and new rules and regulations created and sent over to our members.
On top of these measures, ur coaches are weekly tested, and we’re closely communicating with the parents to receive notifications of possible cases in schools and neighborhoods, and follow the Quarantine Protocols, in line with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website, as of December 10, 2020, and the quarantine recommendations of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, effective December 7, 2020.
This Safety Program has been drafted upon the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, the State of Massachusetts health considerations and tools for Youth Sports and Summer Camps, and the USA Fencing clubs reopening recommendations.
As the knowledge surrounding COVID-19 is constantly changing, Olympia Fencing Center does not guarantee or take any responsibility and liability as to the completeness, reliability, and accuracy of the information contained here.
Students/members traveling out of state or showing any signs of sickness will be sent home. They will only be re-admitted with a negative corona test, a doctor’s approval note, or after two weeks of self-isolation from the day of dismissal.
The student can continue classes via Zoom during this time.
Children with an allergy need to bring a doctor’s letter confirming the symptoms are allergy-related.
Full disclosure of possible illness from families, the coaching team, and staff is required.
Help us keep our fencing community safe and healthy!
