2020-2021 COVID Guidelines - Winter Indoor Facility
Detailed health and safety guidelines will be implemented throughout all of our winter programs at the JPSA indoor facility. Our number one priority is the safety and health of all of our members. All participants will be required to abide by these guidelines to prioritize and maintain the health and safety of all program participants, staff, and spectators. Failure to adhere by these rules may result in dismissal from the programs.
Indoor Facility Protocols
Capacity: Indoor facilities are required to operate in accordance with state and local Department of Health capacity limits. This creates a significant reduction in the number of people in our facility, reduces crowding, and allows for proper social distancing around entrances, exits, and other high-traffic areas. We will have separate entrance and exit areas as well as ample time in between sessions.
Air Circulation: Our facility is required to have air circulation in line with CDC guidance, depending on the facility this includes upgraded filtration standards, additional fans, and where feasible, keeping windows and large doors open. Please see the IWAVE air purifiers that have been installed in our facility and their purpose for more information.
Cleaning: The facility is required to have a clear sanitization schedule and require frequent sanitization of high-touch areas.
On an ongoing basis, facilities are required to continue to follow guidelines and directives issued by the DOH, the CDC, and the Occupational Health and Safety Administration, as applicable, for maintaining a clean, safe, and healthy environment for all parties.
