safety procedures

Here’s how we at thestudio are implementing, adopting and adapting to guidelines for covid-19 safety and mitigation. This page is updated regularly to reflect any changes and to add relevant content.

Updated May 18th, 2021

  • The studio will only open 15 minutes prior to class and close 15 minutes after class to prevent students from congregating or socializing
  • Masks must be worn at all times when in-studio. Please keep your mask on during class. If you’re unable to wear a mask, put on or remove a mask without the assistance of others, you are exempt. A person may not be able to wear a mask for a psychological, behavioural or health condition, or due to a physical, cognitive or mental impairment. The compulsory mask order also includes more expansive wording on exemptions for lip reading, which aligns with the latest BC Public Health Officer direction
  • Touch-less temperature checks will be conducted on all staff and class participants upon entry into thestudio
  • A temperature reading close too or exceeding 38°C, is indicative of a fever and as such, you will not be permitted to enter the studio and take class. In this instance, it is recommended that you seek medical attention to determine the reason for your elevated temperature
  • Further to the above, you will require a doctor’s letter stating that the reason for the elevated temperature reading was either unrelated to covid-19 and/or that you have tested negative for covid-19, before you will be permitted to take class at thestudio again
  • Fans will only be used between classes to ventilate the practice room if and when necessary
  • There are no food or beverage sales until further notice
  • Enhanced ventilation will be provided to ensure adequate airflow in the practice room
