COVID-19 HEALTH & SAFETY
Updated March 11th 2022
Island Elite Cheerleading Health & Safety Protocols:
Spectators & Lobby: Drop off & pick up recommended. Limited space available in lobby for viewing. Only athletes & coaches are permitted inside the gym space however, family members may watch from the lobby on a first come first serve basis. Spectators are recommended to wear masks while in the lobby. There is no capacity limit, but we ask that you please respect others and do not over crowd the space. Athletes may enter the gym 15 minutes ahead of time at the MOST. Spectators should give athletes priority to use the lobby as a waiting area for the 15 minutes right before the next class. Athletes must enter through the front door and we recommend exiting through the rear door (near the bay door facing the parking lot). Upon entrance, athletes must complete the self health survey reading through the list posted at the entrance & use hand sanitizer before entering the gym.
Masks: Masks are not required upon entry, exit, and during training. However, if athletes would prefer to wear a mask during training that is more than okay.
Illness: If you/your child is sick, please do not come to the gym. Please refer to our most up to date sick policy. Send us an email ahead of time to report your absence. Unfortunately, No refunds will be permitted.
Personal Belongings: Athletes in classes will use our cubbies in the lobby for their belongings. Please limit the amount of personal belongings that are being brought into the gym, the only items necessary are a water bottle, phone, and keys. Personal belongings should only be stored inside your cubbies.
Cleaning: All equipment will be sanitized regularly. Athletes may be asked to wipe down their equipment and the expectation is that they cooperate with all health & safety guidelines. All equipment and high touch surfaces such as door handles, light switches, and taps will be sanitized after each class. All mats & floors will be deep cleaned each night with a chemical sprayer using Lysol Multi Surface Cleaner (included on Health Canada’s list of disinfectants with evidence for use against Covid-19).
