COVID-19 PROTOCOLS

Flux Power Yoga

Covid-19 Studio Safety Protocol

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.  

Our Studio Safety Protocol follows the CDC, state, and local health guidelines and HIPAA in relation to Covid-19.  

The Studio Safety Protocol includes:

  • Health Protocol
  • Hygiene Protocol 
  • Sanitation Protocol
  • Social Distancing Protocol
  • Waiver

Health Protocol:  

People with COVID-19 have had a wide range of symptoms reported – ranging from mild symptoms to severe illness.

People with these symptoms or combinations of symptoms may have COVID-19:

  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing

Or at least two of these symptoms:

  • Fever
  • Chills
  • 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, immediately call FLUX POWER YOGA 360-671-0198.  

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 Whatcom County’s recommendation of wearing a face mask when outside the home. 

All clients shall enter through a single point of entry where a mandatory temperature check will be given. Temperature checks will be provided by a team member wearing gloves and a mask. Upon confirmation of a temperature less than 100.4 degrees (per CDC recommendation) or 99.5 degrees (at Studio’s discretion), a team member will log that they have checked your temperature, but will not record your temperature. If your temperature is above set standard temperature we will cancel your session with no penalties. See below for standards of when you may return to the studio.  

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

  • If you show any symptoms of Covid-19 or test positive for Covid-19 within 14 days of attending the studio, then you should immediately contact Flux Power Yoga 360-671-0198.  
  • Studio Manager will review whom you have had contact with at the studio in the prior 14 days leading up to going into isolation from the studio. This will include all clients and team members that you have had close contact with (close contact being within 6 feet for at least 5 minutes).   
  • If you have been in close contact (per the above definition) with an affected client who tests positive for Covid-19 within their isolation period, you will be notified via email and phone call. 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. Studio will provide hand sanitizer stations throughout the studio to further assist in this.  
  • Do not handle other peoples’ belongings including phones and personal equipment.  

Sanitation Protocol:

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

  • The studio will no longer provide mats, blocks or bolsters for clients to rent or borrow. Clients may purchase a mat at the time of session, but may not leave this mat at the studio.     
  • If a worker is diagnosed with Covid-19, the studio will be shut down for 24-48 hours and a complete deep clean of the entire space will be performed.  
  • Changing areas, and lounge areas are temporarily closed until further notice.  
  • Restrooms have been equipped with disinfecting soap, antibacterial spray, and disposable paper towels. Restrooms should be wiped down following each use.  
  • 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.  

Social Distancing Protocol:

The studio is observing strict social distancing protocol to ensure close contact (contact of less than 6’) is limited.  

  • Only clients who have pre-booked classes will be allowed to enter the facility.
  • Masks are required.
  • All people will enter through a single entrance, one at a time. The floor will be marked for individuals with a 6’ distance between people.  
  • Check-in will be contactless with the exception of signing a paper waiver. Clean pens are available.
  • Please leave all your non-essential belongings in your vehicle and bring all remaining personal items (including shoes) with you to your mat.
  • Places for each client will be delineated by marked space. For example, the floor will be taped where each mat will be placed or where each client will practice. 
  • No hands-on assists are being given during the class. All cues will be verbal or visual. The instructor will maintain at least 6’ or greater distance from the clients.  
  • When the class ends clients will leave one at a time from the studio.  
  • Communal spaces including changing areas, and lounge areas are temporarily closed until further notice
