COVID-19 SAFETY PROCEDURES

  • Participants can show up to class at least 15 minutes before start (6:45pm). Please give enough time for the instructor to complete daily verbal screening, attendance, and to complete any required forms.
  • Participants must complete a waiver, Assumption of Risk Form, and Declaration of Compliance form on the first day of class for themselves & their child/ren. Failure to do so means participants will not be permitted entry.
  • Participants are expected to distance (minimum 6 ft/2m) prior to class and during. We encourage participants to wear a non-medical mask until they are in situated in their designated work area and to replace if going to the washroom or leaving the program.
  • We ask that participants avoid aggregating in entryways. If you’d like to catch up before or after class, outside is safest, while maintaining distance.
  • Participants must use the hand sanitizing station at the front entrance but are also encouraged to wash their hands before and after the activity.
  • Hand hygiene and physical distancing will be encouraged.
  • Hand-shaking & hugging is discouraged.
  • Props* will be assigned to each participant for the duration of the program and stored on-site in labelled bags, distributed by the instructor before start of class.
  • Equipment that may be used (e.g. guns) will be cleaned & sterilized between use.
  • The instructor will clean high-touch surfaces before and after the start of class (e.g. door handles, chairs).
  • The instructor will manage complete record-keeping and report daily attendance and any incidents to the Recreation Coordinator.
  • Participants must stay home if they show any symptoms (e.g. cough, fever, fatigue).
  • Class may be cancelled by instructors if they show symptoms.
  • In the event of a participant or instructor showing symptoms during the program, the participant will be asked to remove themselves from the program and seek medical advice. Beyond daily screening, is not up to our staff to do temperature checks, testing or contact tracing. This is the role of the health authority.

Staying safe is a shared responsibility. These procedures and our combined efforts help to lower the risk of spreading COVID-19, but there is still a risk.

Please do your best to abide by these new procedures to ensure we can recreate safely and respectfully together on Haida Gwaii.
