COVID-19 UPDATES

AUGUST 23, 2021 – VACCINATIONS ARE REQUIRED TO PARTICIPATE LIVE IN THE STUDIO.

Dear Flux Community,

It is with great care and thoughtfulness that we have come to the decision to require proof of vaccination in order to participate at Flux Power Yoga. In consultation with our community and local state guidelines, we have made the decision that beginning Monday, Aug 23, our studio will become Vaccine Required. It was not an easy decision, but we feel it is what’s best for the community at large, to keep people safe and assist in helping stop the spread of Covid.

Given that the proclamation of a statewide State of Emergency by Gov. Inslee, the most recent mask order from the WA State Secretary of Health has mandated masks in all indoor facilities including gyms, dance, yoga studios snd martial arts. We hope this will serve the community well by keeping people safe and healthy and we hope this will be temporary. Thank you for helping us help our community by wearing your masks during classes and present your proof of vaccination before attending. We know this is a difficult time and we hope to be part of the solution and get through this together.

As always, we are here for you if you have any questions or feedback. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us at transform@fluxpoweryoga.com or call (360) 671-0198.

We are in this together and we’ll come out of it even stronger than before. 

We hope to see you on your mat, 

Melissa & the Flux Team

FAQs for Vaccine Required Studio: 

What is the new requirement?

  • All students and employees who enter the studio will be required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination. 
  • We are currently considering an individual as vaccinated as of two weeks of receipt of their 2nd dose of their COVID-19 vaccine (or only dose if you receive the Johnson & Johnson (J&J) vaccination).

I have a medical/religious objection to getting vaccinated. What are my options?

  • To request an accommodation for medical reasons, members must provide a doctor’s note. For a religious accommodation, members must provide a written attestation.
  • A doctor’s note or religious attestation must be provided to the studio at least 48 hours prior to your class via email or in person. This will only need to be provided one time.
  • Students who request and are granted an accommodation for a medical or religious exemption must wear a mask at all times and present proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within the last 7 days to enter the studio.

What proof is accepted?

  • (1) Physical vaccination card or other government-provided vaccination record (2) Photo of vaccination card (3) Commercial solution like MyIRMobile app myirmobile.com. 

How do I submit proof of vaccination?

  • You may email a photo or proof to us at transform@fluxpoweryoga.com or
  • Please present your proof of vaccination in person when you arrive to your first class beginning 8/23. We encourage you to arrive to the studio a few minutes earlier than usual. You will only have to show proof of vaccination once.

What information are you storing? Will my vaccination status be shared with anyone?

  • We will review your proof of vaccination, but we will not make or store a copy of the proof itself. Instead, we will note in our system that your vaccination status has been verified, which allows us to avoid having to ask you for proof each time you ride. We will not share your vaccination status unless we are required by law or court order to do so.

I prefer you not store my vaccination information. Can I show my vaccination proof each time I arrive?

  • Please note we will not store information from your vaccination card or other proof, only the fact that your proof was provided to us. If you still prefer, you can show your proof of vaccination each time you enter the studio. However, you will be denied entry to class if you forget or cannot provide proof of vaccination and have not already been granted a medical or religious accommodation.

Can I show proof of a negative COVID-19 test instead of proof of vaccination? 

  • No. Proof of a negative COVID-19 test is accepted for entry only if you have been granted an accommodation for a medical or religious exemption.

Can I remove my mask now since everyone is vaccinated?

  • Students who show acceptable proof of COVID-19 vaccination will still be required as per the current WA state mask mandate. Detailed Order from the State Secretary of Health click here.
  • do not participate if you are sick
  • Stay 6′ apart
  • wear a mask
  • pre-register only, no drop-ins
  • arrive early 10-15 minutes
  • bring only what you need, leave extra stuff in your car
  • come dressed ready to practice

We are also still offering Livestream every day 7 days/week as well as our ever growing On-Demand Library of recorded classes that you can take at your convenience.

We will continue to follow these Covid Safety Protocols:
Flux Power Yoga is committed to providing a safe workspace for our team and clients. With that in mind, we’ve built this Covid-19 Studio Safety Protocol. As our business re-opens to the public, we want to ensure not only the safety of our clients but the safety of the greater community that every person entering our studio will come into contact with. Every person is expected to take part in implementing and complying with these measures.  

You are the core of our business and we’re incredibly serious about protecting the health of each and every one of you. We have built our Studio Safety Protocol referencing expert advice as well as the comfort level of our teaching staff.  

The Studio Safety Protocols includes:

Or at least two of these symptoms:

  • Fever

  • Repeated shaking with chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • Loss of taste or smell

All people should self-monitor for these symptoms. If you have any of these symptoms, please stay home.  

The following procedures are being implemented to ensure that healthy clients are entering the studio. If symptoms are reported at a later time then proper contact tracing can occur.  

Everyone must adhere to WA State mandate of wearing a face mask. 

You will also sign an updated Waiver that includes language on Covid-19.

Per the CDC guidelines, remain in isolation for 14 days and self-monitor for symptoms and seek a Covid test. Seek medical attention should you develop any symptoms.  
  • We are implementing policies to protect all team members’ and client’s health details and conditions. When notifying people who have had close contact with an affected team member or client, the identity and condition of the infected person will not be shared.  
  • Any person who shows symptoms may not re-enter the studio until at least 72 hours have passed since the resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications, and improvement in respiratory symptoms such as shortness of breath or cough, and at least 7 days have passed since symptoms ended and a negative Covid test result. 
  • All clients should practice social distancing by deliberately increasing the physical space between you and other people to at least six feet wherever possible. 

Hygiene Protocol:  

All clients must implement good hygiene and infection control practices. These include:

  • Frequently wash hands: Clients are instructed to wash their hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and water at the beginning of their session and after using the restroom.  
  • Avoid touching your face.  
  • Use respiratory etiquette: Cover your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing with a sleeve or tissue. Wash your hands following coughing and sneezing and dispose of tissues in the trash. Avoid touching your face when coughing and sneezing. This etiquette will be demonstrated on signage and supported by making tissues and touch-free trash receptacles available to all employees and clients.

Sanitation Protocol:

Our studio will provide daily sanitation and housekeeping as normal, with additional cleanings and disinfection measures in between all sessions.   

Restrooms are single use restrooms. Only one person at a time can enter.  

In between each session, all equipment used will be disinfected. The studio will be closed for 30 minutes between sessions for thorough additional disinfecting. We have chosen cleaning products based on recommendations from the CDC and EPA. Products with EPA-approved emerging viral pathogens claims are expected to be effective against SARS-CoV-2 based on data for harder to kill viruses.
