We have continually adapted our Coronavirus policies and procedures throughout the last 18 months as circumstances have changed. Our top priority in all these decisions is the safety and well-being of our customers, staff members and our community.
Today, we are announcing a significant change to our face mask policy in light of newly available information and guidance. The following updates are effective immediately and will be in place until further notice.
· Kids who are 2-11 years-old and anyone who has not been fully vaccinated are still required to wear a face mask at all times when in the building.
· Athletes who have been fully vaccinated will once again be required to wear face masks in the building unless given permission to remove them by their coaches. This permission will only be granted when they are engaged in gymnastics-specific activities, and they are able to maintain adequate distance from anyone under 12-years-old during that time. Athletes will wear their face masks in all common spaces, including the lobby and restrooms.
PARENTS AND OTHER GUESTS
All parents and other guests who visit our facility are now required to wear face masks regardless of vaccination status. If you do not wish to wear a face mask, please utilize our outdoor viewing areas. Please note, if you are in any of our doorways, you will still be required to wear a mask.
Advantage staff members who are not fully vaccinated will continue to wear their face masks while in the building.
Our fully vaccinated staff members will be asked to wear their face masks any time they are in close proximity to children under 12-years-old, such as when spotting athletes or providing other hands-on corrections.
WELLNESS CHECK AND QUARANTINE PROCEDURES
As a reminder, all customers should conduct a thoughtful self-screening prior to entering our building. If you or anyone in your family is experiencing signs of illness, you should not enter until symptoms have resolved and any quarantine or isolation requirement has passed.
If you or your child has been exposed to someone who has COVID-19, you are required to follow the current Washington state and CDC guidance. A negative test result does not negate the need to follow isolation procedures.
Thank you for your support in keeping our families safe. We will continue to update you of any additional changes going forward.
